Hotraco Horti controls the climate in 1,100 hectares of greenhouses in Egypt

With the delivery and installation of 1,000 Orion GC climate computers to a huge greenhouse complex near Alexandria, Hotraco shows what the company, and its innovative automation system for horticulture growers, is capable of. 1,000 greenhouses with a total surface area of more than 1,100 hectares are currently equipped with Orion GC climate computers, associated GMC’s and climate sensors. This means that one Orion GC will control all the necessary peripheral equipment and controls of approximately 1 hectare of greenhouse. The first greenhouses are already operational and work excellent and as expected. The entire operation must be completed before the end of the year. Under continuous supervision of employees of Hotraco Horti - both on site and from Hegelsom, the systems are installed by preferred partner El-Reda from Egypt.

As horticultural businesses grow, this requires control systems and sensors to address the most complex situations in the field of sustainable energy consumption, watering and climate control. Regardless of the climate. On the other hand, due to the increasing worldwide demand for locally produced food, there is also an increasing need for hardware and software that matches local knowledge, needs and opportunities. Hotraco Horti is able to deliver that. With knowledge, experience and with the ORION-GC climate computer. Also in Egypt.

The ORION-GC is an extremely versatile and easy-to-use computer for controlling the climate (ventilation and window positions), recirculation and irrigation. The system is fed with input from a measuring box with a temperature and humidity sensor. If the prevailing climatic conditions or crops require heating, lighting, fabric control, pipe heating or humidification, the ORION-GC can also control those functions. In whatever climate conditions or region in the world. The ORION-GC is a very affordable and very multifunctional alternative to existing competing systems. Made for the future and upgradeable with a variety of control functions when needed.

The ORION-GC Climate computer is extremely accurate, versatile and flexible. Growers can count on a strong crop, optimization of the crop results and production quality, reduction of energy costs and sustainable water management.
