In Leamington Ontario, Dutch greenhouse manufacturer BOM Group is currently teaming up with Canadian greenhouse supplier Universal Fabricating on the 10 ha. greenhouse project for capsicum grower Under Sun Acres. This is the first phase of a future 20 ha. project.
Bom Group supplies United Fabricating with an aluminium rooftop and gable system for a state of the art glasshouse. The companies have been working together on several other Canadian projects in the past. "Universal Fabricating is a local manufacturer of steel constructions and poly greenhouses. In this project the substructure manufactured by Universal fabricating will be integrated with the aluminium Venlo roof and gable system" developed by the Bom Group.
BOM Group will also supply the screening – ventilation- and climate system for the new greenhouse project.
Undersun Acres is a new formed company in the Leamington area. They have big plans for their state of the art large scale Venlo greenhouse complex for the cultivation of capsicums. They are currently constructing the first 10 ha., but have prepared the site and heating infrastructure for a total of 20 ha. Under Sun Acres has invested in three large CHP units from GPN - Jenbacher to supply the project with heat and electricity."
Bom expects that the first 10 ha. will be completed by the end of the summer, just in time to plant the first crops in September.
