Certhon and Priva build pioneering high-tech greenhouses
Armela Farms is a pioneering farming facility in Dubai. Using Dutch technology the company grows environmentally friendly and sustainable products in pest-free greenhouses.
The technologically advanced farming techniques provide high-quality nutrient-rich products, such as lettuce and kale. The company’s proprietary hydroponic and aquaponic technologies, on-site packing and local distribution methods substantially reduce energy consumption and ensure there is virtually no carbon footprint.
In fact, the greenhouses consume around 90% less water than traditional farming, while producing up to ten times more in the same growing space.
This outstanding performance has been achieved through cooperation with the Dutch companies Certhon and Priva. As the project develops further, Armela Farms wants to be the first in the Middle East to establish a fully automated farm.
