ENGIE Potato Storage Concept with Mechanical Ventilation Only

ENGIE Refrigeration has developed a storage system entirely based on mechanical refrigeration, which allows maintaining the same storage conditions throughout the year.

An innovate manner of entirely mechanical refrigeration within a closed environment.

Based on research conducted by Aeres University of Applied Sciences in Dronten, ENGIE can now offer you a completely new and innovative way of storing potatoes.

During each product phase – drying, healing, cooling, storing and heating – the system selects the optimal storage programme with the right level of humidity and temperature.

The farmer and not the outside air will determine and control the quality of the product.
