New climate-controlled storage facility in Australia
Tolsma-Grisnich has set up a new storage facility in Tasmania, Australia. The storage facility is climate-controlled and has an 8,000 tons capacity for the cooling of seed potatoes.
The seed potatoes are stored in boxes. Storage is permanently monitored, and the Vision Control storage computer saves data such as temperature, relative air humidity and CO2.
The storage facility is comprised of 10 cooling cells each with a capacity of 800 tons. A specially developed air system ensures that fresh air is circulated through the storage facility and that CO2 is discharged. Ten QCC40 Vario units have been installed for cooling purposes and are controlled centrally by the Vision Control.
