The high-tech greenhouse to bolster UAE’s food security

Abu Dhabi's investment holding company ADQ and the Netherlands-based smart agriculture company Safe Haven Solutions will partner to build a high-tech greenhouse as the UAE seeks to enhance food security.

The automated 10-hectare facility, located in ADQ's AgTech Park, will use advanced agriculture technology to increase sustainable food production in the country, ADQ said in a statement on Monday.

Using a cooling system that reduces its carbon and water footprint, the greenhouse facility will grow tomatoes and cucumbers year-round in a carbon-neutral, climate-controlled environment.

In phase two, the project will enter the commercial stage and double the growing area of crops to 20 hectares, ADQ said.

"Our partnership with Safe Haven Solutions expands on our mission to increase Abu Dhabi’s sustainable agricultural footprint. By driving investments in AgTech solutions, we are strengthening the UAE’s ability to grow more produce domestically," Gil Adotevi, chief executive of food and agriculture at ADQ, said.

"As such, AgTech Park is rapidly emerging as a hub of large-scale, climate-controlled, high-tech farming and R&D projects.”
