Abu Dhabi – Vegetables

Region: Abu Dhabi – United Arab Emirates

Crop: Tomatoes and other Vegetables

Type of Structure: Closed Classic 9.6m with Pad & Fan and 12.8m Shade Net-houses (12,000m²)

Description of Project:

This area has extremely hot temperatures that can get close to 50°C in summer with high radiation, low humidity, strong desert winds and is very dusty. To grow high quality vegetables we had to design and build greenhouses that would remain at about 28°C in summer with humidity levels of 60-70%. We installed a pad and fan system with thermal screens to help reduce the radiation entering the greenhouses.

The shade houses were covered with 50 mesh insect net to prevent penetration of white fly into the structures.
