In the horticultural area in Dinteloord in the Netherlands, a lot of construction is taking place. And next year that will be even more. Florensis will then build a greenhouse of approximately 6 hectares. That will be a high-tech greenhouse with a 'high-tech screen installation'. The decision was made to have three screens installed on top of each other. Holland Scherming is the company that was awarded the contract. They are happy with this order. Peter Rense: "We are looking forward to this daring piece of work. There will be an energy, a sun and a blackout screen placed. In that order, from top to bottom." A total of 16.5 hectares of screen will be installed at Florensis in Dinteloord. And this will be divided into three separate departments and 54 separate installations.

The technical aspect
The assignment was to keep the screen package as small as possible from the girder. And that mission has been accomplished. The technical drawings are already completed and placed on the conference table.
In addition, Holland Scherming naturally uses its Smart Spring suspension system. With the use of the Smart Spring, the screen package is pulled tighter. That saves 2 cm in the end. That does not seem like much, but when multiplied by the number of running meters of girder, it comes down to about 40 square meters less shade per hectare of greenhouse. Mark Hoogendoorn, Ed Nederlof and Willem van der Sluijs are already busy with the preparations.
Construction will begin in week 20 next year. Florensis has, for about 25 years now, been one of the regular customers of Holland Scherming. Florensis demands flexibility in the offered solutions. "Florensis wants customization. We have always responded to their questions. I think that is the reason why Florensis would like to have us execute this project in Dinteloord. Of course in addition to a good price-quality ratio," Peter Rense adds.
