Combination of innovative technologies provides energy extraction

Koppert Cress, The Netherlands


Efficiency and sustainability are core values at Certhon. Together with our esteemed client, Koppert Cress, we have created an impressive system that utilizes energy in a revolutionary way. By combining multiple innovative technologies, such as the JSK cooling systems, heat pumps, and surface water cooling, Koppert Cress can harvest energy and store excess heat in a highly efficient manner. This enables them to heat the greenhouse in winter using the stored summer heat, resulting in substantial cost savings and a significant reduction in ecological impact.
