Our 2nd green house is now under construction and
expected to start its production from January 2016.
・Location: Ichihara-city, Chiba-Prefecture, Japan
・Total Site Area: 4,480m²
・Green House Area: 2,293m²
・Expected Production: 2,300 bunches/day
Our facility is based on Pure-Na System, technology developed in Japan.
Multiple layers are not only introduced to increase the production capacity but also designed so that the vegetables receive maximum amount of solar energy without sacrificing good ventilation.
The special sheet collects and taps the solar energy to maximise its potential, while the white flooring reflects the sunlight for further use. The very durable ceiling film lasts longer than 15 years.Cyclical water system for resource efficiency
Water resource is constantly purified and recycled within the system. Water flow is also applied vertically along the green house walls so to cool the air; the wind goes in and out of the house and maintains the green house temperature during the hot season.
