SchermNed has successfully completed another unique project in Suffolk, England. The Suffolk region near the town of Ipswich is known as the glass town of England, something that we, as a Westland company, immediately feel a connection with.
The greenhouse, "Sterling Suffolk”, is the first semi-closed greenhouse in the United Kingdom and covers an area of 9 hectares. The project has been divided into several phases. The first phase was completed in 2020 and now the second phase has also been completed. In the greenhouse, various smaller vine tomatoes such as cherry, cocktail and baby plum tomatoes are grown.In the first phase, SchermNed realised 6 hectares of screen installations. This went perfectly and that’s why we also awarded the contract for the second phase by the client Van der Hoeven. Under the supervision of SchermNed Project Leader, Peter van der Lingen, we fitted 232 windows with harmonica insect netting. In addition, we realised 4 single-screen installations with a total area of 28,080 m2 and installed the crop wires.
The harmonica insect netting will be used to keep out insects that could introduce viruses. The screen installation uses Luxous 1147 FR, an energy-saving screen cloth from our supplier Ludvig Svensson. The fabric allows sufficient light to pass through in combination with optimal energy savings and moisture permeability. The screen cloth ensures a better growing climate in winter and makes it possible to keep the screen closed for several hours during the day.
