Innovative and sustainable climate chambers

With innovative and sustainable climate chambers, ENGIE Refrigeration can research, optimize and guarantee the crops growth. In our climate chambers, we can simulate almost all the climatological conditions required for seed breeding, to test the seeds, and to develop seed storage and protection products. ENGIE combines a broad range of possible applications with very low tolerances, great stability, and high reliability. This way, you get maximum return from the correct treatment of seeds, which makes you ready for the future.

Growing demand for new cultivation methods

Various developments, like climate change or the increasingly limited availability of agricultural land, require new, more sustainable and innovative methods of crop cultivation. Technological breakthroughs are required due to the increasing world population and the demands of governments and customers for more sustainable production methods.

Optimize crop growth

Are you looking for vertical cultivations methods to grow crops above each other? Perhaps you are looking for a method that can be used in spaces without any daylight, such as boats or cellars, so that an indoor farm becomes a possibility, or for the ideal growing conditions for new types of crops? Let us know.

Clients

We design climate chambers in close cooperation with our clients, such as research institutes, colleges, universities and high-tech companies. To completely meet the relevant requirements, we always select the best components, technology and materials. For example, when automating climate chambers we use a recognised and reliable industrial open source platform. This platform can easily be linked to other ICT systems in your company. 

Horticulture & Climate chambers

We design climate chambers to investigate the effect of changing conditions on crops, and to be able to grow crops indoors and otherwise (urban farming).

Everything about Climate chambers

Horticulture & Heat recovery

The heat that is released during research in climate chambers can be reused wherever possible. ENGIE can design the climate chambers in such a way that the heat from the cooling compressors is used to heat the building, being sustainable and energy-efficient.
