A microclimate system for the container storage of potatoes (intended for 22 000 tons). Capacity is going to be increased to 40 000 tons over the next few years.
“Lexo” LLC is an agricultural complex - a producer of grain and vegetables.
Development of a long-term storage facility for table potatoes with minimal restrictions in terms of warehousing logistics.
Storage of potatoes until July without any loss of their marketability or weight.
Aspiration system, mechanical refrigeration of each room and artificial “Pad Cooling” humidification.
Design engineers and the construction department were in charge of the project, which included the involvement of Agrovent specialists in the area of microclimate equipment.
Lexo is one of the few farms which, by adhering to all of the technical processes involved in potato production and storage, manages to ship most of the crop during the summer period.
Systematic work over the course of three years. Our cooperation is ongoing.
In 2017, the client decided to enlarge the capacity of the rooms so as to handle the storage of 900 tons instead of 715. During the shoulder season the microclimate system was rebuilt, allowing for cost savings in the construction of new storage sections.
