Energy savings through innovation


Vireõ, based in De Kwakel, recently installed a new greenhouse. Vireõ’s acreage now amounts to around 33 hectares, distributed across 9 sites. At Vireõ, reliability in respect of its customers is of paramount importance and this is the image it wanted to portray with its new greenhouse. Vireõ wants to save more energy with the new screen installations. It therefore opted for a double-screen energy installation consisting of a sun protection cloth and an energy cloth, executed in “tent form”.

One of our innovations really appealed to the customer: spring blocks developed specifically to optimize our PDI pull-push system. This ensures that the installations always close properly. A must for Vireõ when it comes to energy savings. Thanks to plenty of customer contact and our practical knowledge, together with Vireõ we came up with the perfect solution.

PDI promised something good and it certainly kept that promise!
