An energy-efficient and innovative production greenhouse in Shanghai

YouYou, Shanghai, China


Due to the limited area which is suitable for cultivation in Shanghai, the city’s current vegetable production is far below the market demand. To provide abundant, fresh, high-quality fruits and vegetables for the residents of Shanghai, we have built a SuprimAir greenhouse to propagate and grow tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and cumcumbers. For this investor we make sure that everything has been taken care of: from design to integration of all technologies and from the best choice of variety to advice about agronomics.

Unique results

We give every project our fullest attention. Collaborating with you and exceeding your expectations. Resulting in exceptional highlights for this project too:

All-round support

We provided YouYou with support in design, planning, construction and planting. Our agronomical department advised the company about the best crop varieties, recipes and cultivation systems.

Maximum yields

The annual yield of vegetables is estimated to be about 7,000 tons, which means 30-40 tons of high-quality vegetables will be available for Shanghai citizens every day on average.

Maximum energy-efficiency

Carbon dioxide is kept inside the greenhouse to the greatest extent. This design plays a vital role in saving energy, reducing emissions, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Integrated mechanical cooling

Thanks to an integrated mechanical cooling, the temperature in the greenhouse can precisely be controlled.

No room for insects

Thanks to the overpressure of the SuprimAir-system, insects are being kept out of the greenhouse, meaning that YouYou does not need to use pesticides during cultivation.

An equal microclimate

Our greenhouse ensures that the exchange of the indoor and outdoor air is limited, resulting in an equal microclimate for all crops in every part of the greenhouse.

"Thanks to modern harvesting and packaging equipment and a plant waste recycling system, we are combining the world's leading horticultural technology and are realizing a first-class, semi-automated production greenhouse in Shanghai."
