Fuerte Planta: Geo-Well technology

Respect for nature and the eco-friendly efficient use of natural resources takes an increasingly important place on everyones agenda nowadays. Despite the fact that plant growing is a natural process, technological advances are widely employed in the green houses, improving the final quality of the produced item.

Technological change in growing process

However, does the use of technologies always go unnoticed for environmnet? Unfortunately, there is a certain negative impact which utilisation of natural gas brings in with it. Luckily, we are familiar with the producers, for whom this is of great importance. Fuerte Planta takes care not only about the beauty of their stunning anthuriums, but about the side effects of their production as well.

The ?ompany is pleased to announce the implementation of the recently developed innovation that would completely cease the use of natural gas during the process of growing their anthruiums. Thanks to the invention of Geo-Well, natural gas is completely eliminated from the production process.

The natural gas-based heating system is replaced by ground water-based system. Technology seems simple at first. 2 wells are required, at a depth of 2000 meters. The secret is that the average temperature at a depth of 10 meters in the Netherlands is around 10-12 degrees Celsius. Every 100 meters in depth add up around 3 degrees, which allows to reach 70 degrees at a depth of wells.

Greenhouse which is really green

Ground waters at dephth are naturally heated by the planets core. Greenhouses need constant heating and Geo-Wells invention makes the use of natural heat possible. Water heated this way and raised from the first well, heats the greenhouse and while gradually losing heat, is pumped back to the depth via the second well, finalizing the cycle. In other words, by turning the gas boiler off Fuerte Plante made a big step towards renewable energy and "green technologies contributing to a healthy future for the planet.
