NL: Van der Drift Roses installs 2,800 solar panels

Rose nursery Van der Drift Roses recently had over 2800 solar panels installed. This enables the Red Naomi! grower to sustainably meet a large part of its energy needs itself in summer. The energy needed for cooling the greenhouse now almost entirely comes from solar panels.

Floating panels
The firms Albers Alligator and Centrica Business Solutions have mounted MULTI-F Solar on the two water basins next to the greenhouse. One embankment of the water basin has also been fitted with solar panels. The water basins have an integrated floating system, with new algae cloth, on which the PV installation is mounted. This provides a very stable and wind-resistant installation that also prevents algae formation.

The installations with solar panels on the roof of the premises as well as on the basins realize over 1 megawatt of the 1.4 megawatts required by Van der Drift. This fulfills a large part of the energy needs for greenhouse and greenhouse cooling. The big advantage is simultaneity: the moment energy is needed in the greenhouse during production, the energy is supplied at lightning speed.

International website
To serve Van der Drift Roses' international customers, the website was recently translated into German and French.
