Vertical Farming

Give your vertical farming more precise atmospheric control for less power and ensure a stable environment and quality yield all year round.

Agriculture is an industry in the midst of a huge transformation; radical, sustainable approaches to farming are needed to produce food for a population that is expected to grow to approximately 9 billion by 2050.

Vertical farming is at the forefront of this transformation, offering a way to meet increasing demand for produce whilst simultaneously claiming less ground space, but many variables need to be precisely controlled in order to maximise yield and profitability.

Regulating lighting, humidity, temperature and nutrient levels to ensure the consistent growth of thousands of plants is crucial to a successful operation. Alongside this, minimising energy use as far as possible is key to reducing the costs associated with such intensive methods. Optimising critical systems at a vertical farming facility significantly reduces their environmental impact, which aligns with the overarching goal of building a sustainable future for all.

Our thermal management systems and intelligent buildings control software ensure precise conditions for optimal plant yield, whilst optimising energy use.

The very best vertical farming facilities can regulate lighting, humidity, temperature and nutrient levels to maximise plant growth whilst keeping energy costs at a minimum.

Our tailored atmospheric management systems for vertical farms give you precise control at individual shelf level, helping you manage Vapour Pressure Deficit and optimise Crop Production Efficiency.

Our systems approach and ability to combine hardware and software ensures that your vertical farm works smarter, not harder, to give you more yield for less power and ensuring a stable environment and quality crop all year round.
