“A new vertical farm – Nordic Harvest – will be Europe’s largest and most efficient when fully completed in late 2021. The indoor facility is being equipped with robotics, hydroponics, arrays of 20,000 LEDs, smart software and other technologies for processing more than 5,000 individual data points. It will run entirely on wind power, slashing the carbon footprint of production.
The project is in Taastrup, a suburb west of Copenhagen, Denmark. The team at Nordic Harvest are collaborating with YesHealth, a Taiwanese company which already operates the two largest and most energy efficient vertical farms in Asia. Working in partnership, they began building the vertical farm in April this year, and the first phase of construction is now completed…”
