The high-tech greenhouse to bolster UAE’s food security
Added on 08 August 2023
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.”
