Heat Supply of a Vegetable Growing Business

The family business was founded back in 1950. Since 2007, the business has operated in Straelen, North Rhine-Westphalia, where it grows tomatoes on an area of almost 70,000 m². Due to the German weather conditions and the year-long consumer demand, all tomatoes are grown in greenhouses. The state-of-the-art facilities feature optimum climate control. Most of the required heat is supplied by Nordmethan by way of heat contracting.
