Geothermal Energy in Turkish Greenhouses: Efficiently Managed with Ridder’s Technology

In Turkey’s greenhouse agriculture sector, geothermal energy plays a pivotal role in transitioning towards more sustainable and efficient operations. Ridder’s advanced climate computers enable growers to optimally utilize this natural, renewable energy source for crop growth.

Turkey is rich in expansive geothermal resources, presenting significant opportunities for greenhouse agriculture. Geothermal heat is more widely and affordably available in many Turkish agricultural regions than fossil fuels and is also more sustainable. This renewable heat source aids in reducing operational costs and minimizing the ecological footprint of agricultural enterprises.

Inspiring examples of geothermal applications in greenhouse agriculture can be found in the Netherlands. Innovators like Ammerlaan The Green Innovator and Duijvestijn Tomatoes, both Ridder clients, developed their geothermal sources and integrated the heat output into their heating systems. This results in considerable energy savings and CO2 emission reductions. In newer Dutch geothermal projects, collective networks are established for joint exploitation by groups of entrepreneurs. The experiences of these growers offer valuable insights and can serve as a blueprint for Turkish growers interested in utilizing geothermal energy.

Control Over Heat Source with Ridder’s Technology
Ridder provides Turkish growers with advanced technological solutions like the CX500 climate computer, designed for simple yet effective control of geothermal heat exchangers, valves, and pumps. This enables growers to optimally manage their greenhouse climate and efficiently utilize the available heat source.

For more complex installations – combining multiple energy sources like those at Ammerlaan and Duijvestijn Tomatoes – the Ridder MultiMa climate computer is an ideal choice. It offers growers intricate control over their heat sources, essential for maintaining optimal growth conditions in greenhouses.

CO2 Management for Optimal Growth
A challenge with using geothermal energy is the lack of CO2 production, essential for plant growth. Administering pure CO2 from external sources is a solution. Growers can then effectively regulate CO2 levels with Ridder’s CO2 Optimizer module, ensuring an ideal environment for their crops.

Expert Support and Advice
Beyond technological solutions, Ridder offers expert support and advice tailored to the needs and challenges of the Turkish greenhouse agriculture sector. This ensures that growers maximize the return from their geothermal systems.

Geothermal energy offers Turkish growers an opportunity to lead in sustainability and efficiency. Ridder’s climate computers and expertise are crucial for making this transition successful. Collaborating with Ridder means taking a step towards a sustainable, efficient, and productive future in Turkish greenhouse agriculture.
