In the design and realisation of a heating system, the main starting point is the type of cultivation. Based on the desired temperature, environmental requirements, energy efficiency and practical layout, we then determine which heating installation is best for you. Our installations are always customised and developed using the latest technology. We have biomass solutions, wood-burning stoves, gas boilers, CHP, heat pumps and electric boilers. We can also adapt the installation to geothermal energy.
Cogas Climate Control works with Priva climate computers, which lead the way when it comes to energy management. When, in addition to heat, steam and co2 are also released during the heating process, this is not wasted but used in the greenhouse. The Priva system can also respond intelligently to current situations. Electricity prices negative? Then the gas goes off and the electric boiler comes on, without you having to think about it. The system is adjusted to your wishes, to grow as sustainably and economically as possible. Heat generated during the day is often not used in full that day. This heat is stored in buffer tanks so it can be used at night. If you have your own climate computer, we coordinate this with its supplier. We go for sustainable solutions, storing heat well and losing as little as possible.
Heat is usually distributed throughout the greenhouse using a pipe system. A pipe system on the ground can do double duty, by also acting as a transport path for the carts used with harvesting. It is also possible to install intermediate tubes between crops, also called growing tubes. A third option is the use of lifting tubes. These are tubes that hang above the crop, ensuring the perfect temperature even a little above the ground. The advantage of the hoisting heating is that this system of pipes can be lifted up so that you can drive under it with a tractor, for example. You can then lower the lifting heater again to bring the heat to the crop. It is also possible to install a monorail under the trellis. This catches the cold air from above and acts as a transport track for the overcrop truck or the spraying robot.
