Intergrow continues to grow to a cultivation area of 25 ha, with a heat storage tank with a capacity of no less than 10,000,000 litres of water. So far the largest in the USA.
Expanding without interrupting the current production. That was our challenge while building the third project for United Farms.
As head contractor, in collaboration with Havecon and PB tec, VB came up with a total solution that incorporates all modern cultivation solutions, so that tomatoes are available all year round at a short distance from Chicago.
