Identification

The solution aims at providing sustainable, profitable and fresh organic healthy food, using only renewable energy and rainwater. This solution relies on mobile and modular indoor farming techniques in a recycled maritime container. All fruits and vegetables are grown on independent planters, on multiple floors, with soil and organic compost mixed. The light comes from automatic Led systems, powered with solar panels on integrated on the roof. The drip irrigation system is supplied with rainwater collected from the roof and stored in a tank inside the Food container. The air is renewed thanks to a double-flow ventilation connected to a Canadian well to recover heat from the ground. Electronic sensors analyse different parameters in real-time including the temperature, CO2, humidity level, light, plant growth speed and many more.
