J. Huete Greenhouses begins construction on massive greenhouse project in Spain

July 10, 2024

J. Huete Greenhouses has begun the construction of one of the largest greenhouse projects in Europe in 2024.

The complex, comprised of 15 hectares of gothic greenhouses located in the region of Murcia, is intended to produce high-quality tomatoes using sustainable hydroponic techniques for the company Bonnysa Agroalimentaria.

Conceived in collaboration between the engineering teams of J. Huete Greenhouses and Bonnysa, the complex is scheduled to be operational by next autumn. The greenhouses will have a height of six metres from the gutter and will reach 8.80 metres from the raised ridge, with overhead butterfly ventilation and perimeter ventilation on the sides and front.

Among the equipment included is plastic coating with some areas of UV protection cellular plates, motorized rolling doors, energy-saving screens, climate control and a complete electrical system. In addition, the gutters will be lacquered in white on a Magnelis coating, which will provide greater luminosity and protection against oxidation. The arches and arms of the ventilation will also be lacquered in white to maintain an adequate temperature and improve the durability and luminosity of the plastic.

The project includes hydroponic cultivation gutters hanging from the greenhouse, which incorporate a system for collecting drainage, allowing for the saving of irrigation water and fertilizers.

J. Huete Greenhouses’ additional projects includes greenhouses in Mexico for hydroponic strawberry production, a semi-enclosed plastic greenhouse in Colombia and two berry greenhouses in Australia. Recently, it has completed the construction of seed research greenhouses in South America, the remodeling of eight hectares of glass greenhouses, the construction of new research greenhouses in Spain and the launch of atechnical greenhouse in Portugal to produce medicinal cannabis.
