Projects with VGB Watertechniek
Expansion Berry Brothers and new process computer for Proeftuin Randwijk
Last summer, SERCOM, in collaboration with VGB Watertechniek (VGB), supplied an installation for irrigating soft fruit and controlling a greenhouse. The Wireless Xtender was used for this, which controls several irrigation units from a large distance. Scales are also used at this location to measure the drainage in pots. These measurements and the measurement of the EC are used to automatically mix and add the correct amount of water.
Only a few months after commissioning the system, we were asked to provide an extension, integrating an additional wireless field station. This project was also carried out by VGB.
Given our activities within the soft fruit sector, Proeftuin Randwijk approached us to sponsor them by supplying a comparable process computer. Proeftuin Randwijk is the central place in the Netherlands where independent, practice-oriented innovation and knowledge development for Dutch fruit cultivation takes place. We are very proud to be able to contribute to this.
