<p>Development of a storage system for table and seed potatoes in frameless buildings (20 000 tons).
</p>
<h3>Client</h3>
<p>“Grekhov” Family Farm is a major potato producer in Kurgan Region.</p>

Objective

To create a system for the bulk storage of potatoes from August to May.

The potatoes must preserve their marketability qualities for the entire storage period.

Distinguishing features

Since frameless vegetable-storage buildings are extremely popular and common in Russia, the client decided to implement the microclimate system in this type of structure. In these semi-circular hangars, ventilation is only installed in the walls of the abutting ends.

Solution

A perforated air-circuit system was used.

The “ORION” automatic-control system was designed specifically for vegetable-storage facilities. Remote monitoring and control is an option.

Distinguishing features

Operational stages:

  • Project development
  • Purchase of equipment and materials
  • Delivery
  • Installation
  • Start-up and adjustment operations
  • Project launch

In collaboration with the construction company, the project was worked on by a number of Agrovent specialists: design engineers, the construction department, and specialists in the area of ventilation equipment.

Insofar as the project was implemented in stages, it was important to work out an automated-control system that could manage operations in several sections.

The project was implemented from scratch in 2015. In 2017, the farm’s potato-production area spanned 600 ha. In 2018, the farm is planning to expand its storage areas using Agrovent technologies and equipment.
