Future Crops: vertical automatic warehouse

Sector: Vertical farm

Future Crops, the Dutch company among the first to experiment with vertical farming, cultivates its products in a completely controlled atmosphere that perfectly combines advanced technology and sophisticated agricultural techniques.

Among the revolutionary technologies, all rigorously custom-made, is the automated warehouse created by Automha in collaboration with Philips: a vertical, multi-depth automated warehouse that moves trays of topsoil in which aromatic herbs are grown.

The Vertical Farm is a fully automated system that favors cultivation in multilayered edifices supported by special rooms, lights and smart LEDs, sophisticated irrigation systems, and accurately air-conditioned environments.

These prerequisites create perfect growth conditions for every type of crop. The base concept is to have an extremely optimized organic farming system that is unaffected by the seasonality of products and external factors, the first and foremost being the climate.

An auto-sufficient production cycle, composed of automated hydroponic cultivations able to produce 7 harvests per year in 1/10 of the space, using renewable energy sources and 80% less water, reducing consumption for increased production in as little time as possible. The automated warehouse that Automha has created for Future Crops takes up an area of 900 m2, with a height of 12 m, for the storage of a total of 980 trays and a cultivation surface of 4,000 m2.

The warehouse is made up of:

  • N°1 stacker crane with a Supercap satellite;
  • System for tray handling throughout the entire process;
  • Handling and storage of trays 2.9 x 1.4 m, each tray having a surface of 4.1 m2.
