Most parts of Europe have experienced an unusually sunny summer. We as Havecon will be enjoying every sunray for the next years thanks to our newly installed solar power installation on the roof of our factory. Almost 2900 PV panels have been installed, and together they will generate over 700 MWh of electricity annually. This means that we will manufacture and load all our materials using electricity that we generated ourself. Our customers are already using the most of the sun, and now we are too!
We hosted a lunch for everyone onsite at Pure Flavor to say thank you for their continuing hard work, especially now that the finish line is near. For the last couple of months, they worked hard day in, day out. During the project, they had to deal with various weather conditions. We even had some snow onsite at the beginning of this year! Without everyone onsite, we would not be able to realise such a beautiful project. Again a big thank you to all onsite! The coming weeks we are working on completing this project.
November of 2017, we started working on the foundations for Le Serres Sagami, located in Mirabel, Quebec. Here we are building a complete 6 hectares organic tomato greenhouse expansion. The foundation work was completed before winter and we returned in early spring to start with the steel construction. Construction work on the project is nearing the end.
Last week we have moved from the Marconistraat to the Lorentzstraat at business park 'de Hoefslag' (Bleiswijk). Our new address is Lorentzstraat 8, 2665 JH Bleiswijk. The move went very smoothly, while there was a lot going on during the day. At the end of the day everyone was settled at their new workplaces, all computers were connected agian and we were able to have a drink and celebrate the succesful move.
The construction of the greenhouse itself was already finished a couple of weeks ago. From the outside is does not seem that much is happening at the moment. And yet there is a large group of people present at the project every day to ensure that the greenhouse can be operational this year. A good moment to have a look at the progress of the various installations in the greenhouse.
