FarmPRO ‘Productivity’ Container Farm
The FarmPRO features a growing surface of 68.6 m2 (738 sq.ft) with 2 automated crop-to-person carousels, resulting in industry-leading labor efficiency. The grow module is a stand-alone unit in a sealed and insulated 40ft freight container. It is fully equipped in stainless steel, with a hydroponic NFT gully irrigation system. Commercial growers have built successful businesses delivering fresh produce to high-end restaurants, local groceries, and foodservice suppliers. The FarmPRO includes its own germination surface of 4 m2 (43 sq.ft). The base price is 137.000 EUR or 1.998 EUR/vegetative m2 (approx. EUR 186/sq.ft)
FarmFLEX ‘Flexible’ Container Farm
The FarmFLEX features a growing surface up to 55 m2 (592 sq.ft), and offers larger flexibility in crop mix, as the center corridor allows immediate access to all plants. The container farm works with an ebb & flow irrigation system on growing benches and is fully equipped in stainless steel. This traditional design, an early standard in the industry, requires a commercial grower to walk into the Farm for planting & harvesting and is less productive than the FarmPRO or the ModuleX. It is best suited for research or small commercial operations. The base price is 138.000 EUR for a 5-layer system or 3.286 EUR/vegetative m2 (approx. 351 EUR/sq.ft)
FarmLAB ‘Research’ Container Farm
The FarmLAB is engineered based on the FarmFLEX, with upgrades for flexible LED lighting plans and extra software controls. All of this can be tailored to a specific crop and/or growth phase. Our customers have used the FarmLAB successfully for the research of wheat, banana plant propagation, flowers, hemp, and many others. The base price is 138.000 EUR for a 5-layer system or 3.286 EUR/vegetative m² (305 EUR/sq. ft.)
The ModuleX can be configured between 2 to 64 Grow Modules, so your PlantFactory is scalable with the growth of your business. One GrowModule features 86 m2 (926 sqft) of growing surface, yielding about 6.140 kg/year (13.530 lbs/year) of fresh vegetables. Each separate module allows for an independent climate and nutrient system, allowing your mix of crops to be adaptable to your customers’ needs.
The base price is an industry-low CAPEX of 1.800 EUR/m2 per growing surface (approx. 167 EUR/sq.ft). The labor costs are reduced by the automated crop-to-person ‘BenchCarousel’. This is the most efficient solution to maximize your return on investment. For example, the ModuleX-8 has 8 GrowModules for a total of 672 m2 (7.230 sq.ft). Base price 1.260.000 EUR for an approximate output of romaine lettuce of 44.000 kg/year (97.000 lbs/year).
Large Scale PlantFactory
A PlantFactory is custom engineered and constructed within an existing or new stand-alone building. A fully automated solution, with a growing surface larger than 5000 m2 (53.800 sq.ft). Economies of scale allow for extensive automation and labor cost savings in crop handling and processing. Suitable for production of leafy greens, herbs, microgreens, and medicinal plants. Base price ranges between 2.500-3.000 EUR/m2 (232-279 EUR/sq.ft), depending on the level of automation in handling and crop processing after harvest.
