'Customized system proves useful in extreme climate in Saudi Arabia'

"We are proud that our engineered climate system has proven capable of maintaining optimal conditions for crop growth even in such challenging environments. Our commitment to quality and innovation has allowed us to push boundaries and meet challenges," said Jean-Pierre Coene, CEO of Urban Crop Solutions.

In a recent project in Saudi Arabia, the climate system was subjected to unprecedented challenges due to exposure to a maximum temperature of +50°C in the shade. Despite these conditions, the climate system exceeded expectations by maintaining optimal growing conditions for the crops in the indoor farm.

The system

Urban Crop Solutions' strength lies in the tailored approach that it brings to every project. It does not bring a one-size-fits-all offer, but instead, its process engineers listen to their customers and use their in-house knowledge, expertise, and tools to develop a tailor-made solution for every project.

Urban Crop Solutions is a partner during the entire process: from the conceptional design to the detailed engineering, procurement, and manufacturing, up to the installation and commissioning, and even training and maintenance if required. One of the main advantages of working with Urban Crop Solutions, which was also demonstrated in the project in Saudi Arabia, is the fact that it works supplier independent. Therefore, vendors are chosen based on the customer's requirements, offering the best guarantee for every tailor-made installation.

"We had set up dedicated monitoring to follow these units from minute to minute, so we could see the reaction of both the components inside the machine and outside the machine. And also, especially, to see what the impact was on the energy consumption and load on our compressors. As a design, supply, and building company for indoor farming solutions, we strive for these moments where everything fits together nicely!" continues Jean-Pierre.

Urban Crop Solutions is committed to contributing to a more sustainable future by providing advanced farming technologies that can withstand the challenges of a changing climate.
