The end customer requirement
The customer needs to build a ripening plant for exotic fruit that maintains the very high quality levels for which the brand is known in the market.

Storage description
The plant consists of four ripening cells and a large room for calibration and packaging. The plant is completed by a quality control laboratory which, by sampling, checks each ripening cycle, analysing the weight, colour and consistency of the fruit flesh.

Storage informations
The cooling capacity for use is 66 kW per cell. Within each of the four ripening cells, 24 pallets can be placed, totalling 24,000 kg of exotic fruit. Depending on the type of exotic product, the total ripened in one year is about 7,500 tonnes.
