New Zealand’s first large-scale vertical farm, Greengrower, is located at Waikato Innovation Park in Ruakura.

The 5,900m² vertical farm production facility grows leafy green plants in stacked layers from seed right through to harvest.
Of course, this means tailoring the light and environmental conditions to create ideal growing conditions.

Feisst Electrical completed the prewire and fit out of the specialised electrical components, including Desert Aire systems (humidifiers), nutrient systems and large scale grow lighting.

The extensive plant installation took place throughout the construction process; Greengrower being committed to delivering product to supermarkets. Numerous generators were installed as a temporary measure to enable production to commence whilst our contractors worked on completion of the contract.

Amongst many challenges, the project was delivered on time and under budget.
