Boiler rooms

Boiler rooms serve to heat the greenhouse, the production of CO2, the storage of heat and the production of steam for disinfection. The boiler rooms must comply with legal regulations and guidelines.

Installations in the boiler room

In the boiler room, many different installations are placed which are often interdependent and should therefore be well matched. There are first of all boilers in the boiler room, including flue gas condensers if necessary. Also a CO2-system, head manifolds and group dividers are often placed in a boiler room.


The boilers are used for heating the greenhouse, producing CO2, and optionally producing steam. A boiler is dimensioned so it meets the required heat demand, which is determined by a climate analysis. A boiler can run on various fuels subject to availability and local legislation.


When produced heat cannot directly be used in the greenhouse, the heat is stored in the heat storage tank. The stored heat can then be used at any other time when there is a heat demand. The heat demand determines the size of the heat storage: there cannot be stored more than there can be used at short notice. In order to lose as little heat as possible, it is important that the heat demand is aligned correctly with the capacity of the boilers and the size of the heat storage tank.
