Electrical Engineering

We can look after the design and execution of all the electro-technological installations at your site right from the start, establishing your exact wishes and requirements and then providing you with an initial no-obligation quote. Using Stabicad software to draw both installation drawings and diagrams, we first digitally sketch out all installations to be fitted by us. We then use the Intelec cable calculation package to work out all cable requirements to ensure we don't size cables too short. This package enables us to accurately establish all voltage losses, short circuit currents and the distribution of current capacities in advance, and to determine optimum cable thicknesses, which in turn safeguards safe installations. 

Climate computers

As an authorised Hoogendoorn Automation dealer, we can automate the most complex of processes for you. Starting with standard ventilation and/or mixing group control right up to... well, there really is no limit. We can automate any installation in existence - if not with one of the many standard controls available, then with a customised one. As a user, you will of course want operation to be intuitive - the Hoogendoorn iSii therefore shows you all data or any specific selection thereof in just the way you want it. 


Greenhouses have increased in size over past years, with seeming advantages such as climate buffers. The most frequently used ventilation systems are installed high up and simply move air horizontally, with no air movement towards the bottom though. A Verti-Fan installation aims to create a vertical air movement, without creating too much turbulence, which would result in plant stress, as too much air movement can be detrimental to plants. Vertical air movement is achieved by mounting a fan at the top of the greenhouse and attaching a plastic duct to it, transporting air downwards in a controlled manner. Air leaving the duct below the plants should then spread out across the ground and eventually slowly rise upwards through the plant. Excess heat often accumulating at the top of the greenhouse is utilised underneath plants this way, resulting in considerable energy savings. The upwards air movement along the plant results in improved CO2 absorption, activating plants. The plant also stays drier, reducing the risk of mould formation. 

Assimilation Lighting

We also supply custom-made lighting installations, designing them in close consultation with the light fitting manufacturers. Both the required luminous intensity and the desired level of uniformity are important considerations in this regard. We work out the relevant electrical installations with cabling and control panels based on the lighting schedule drawn up and then supply the whole package, from transformers and/or CHPs down to the connection of every last light.
