KARDITSA GARDENS // CHP HYDROPONIC GREENHOUSE

ORION carried out the design and construction of a 5 hectare hydroponic greenhouse Kipoi Karditsas SA in Karditsa, Greece, as a turn-key project. ORION also holds a moajor share of the investment.

It is one of the largest and most high-tech greenhouses in Greece and is a state-of-the-art project for hydroponic tomato cultivation. The cultivation lasts all year round and can exceed a production of 70 kg / m2.



In order to meet the thermal needs of the greenhouse, a CHP unit (Cogenaration of heat and power unit) unit was installed, with a total capacity of 4 MW. The CHP unit consumes natural gas and produces electricity and thermal energy through hot water. The hot water is stored in a buffer tank and transferred to the greenhouse according to its thermal needs.

The flue gases emitted by the engines also feed the greenhouse for the plants fertilization.
