The family business KP Holland is active worldwide in the production and breeding of Kalanchoe, Spathiphyllum, Curcuma and a range of green plants. Technical director Roy van der Knaap welcomed us to one of their high-tech greenhouses, where Priva takes care of climate control and irrigation.
Connecting with KP Holland
In the 'Connecting With' series, Priva visits horticultural entrepreneurs from around the world. They talk about the challenges they face and how Priva solutions help them tackle them. The second video in the series is about KP Holland.
The beginning of the partnership with Priva goes back to 1950 when the company was founded. The company is now run by the third generation of the Van der Knaap family. As the company's partner, Priva uses the Connext to control, among other things, the climate and water management. Priva partner Royal Brinkman is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the systems.
Technical Director Roy Van der Knaap: "It is a reliable system. It gives us confidence to have Priva control the entire climate in the greenhouses. That gives peace of mind."
Water disinfection for water reuse
Within KP Holland, the Connext provides central control of cultivation systems and installations. This includes climate control, screen cloths, but also water management. KP Holland uses the Priva Vialux-Line for disinfecting water with UV-C light. This destroys all the germs present, such as fungi, bacteria and viruses and allows the irrigation water to be safely recirculated.
