Huge tanks in fiberglass have arrived at Nibio’s facilities at Særheim. Here, the tanks will be included in test work to develop sustainable and climate-neutral technology for greenhouses. The massive size of the tanks required an extensive and exciting transport.
The fiberglass tanks measures 5 meters in height, and with a width of 3.6 meters the tanks hold a full 40 cubic meters. The tanks were shipped as special transport with entourage, all the way from the supplier in Lithuania. After unloading at the port in Norway, another entourage were to follow the tanks safely to it’s destination at Særheim.
“The tanks were so large that it required a full escort” explains project manager Magnar Stangeland. «What makes fiberglass so beneficial is the low weight, which is definitely a bonus in terms of transport.”

The tanks will be used as energy storage for hot and cold water, and are part of a larger and exciting test project. GreenCap Solutions AS develops new, green technology for greenhouses with the goal of reducing emissions and improving crops. The energy storage will help regulate both temperature and humidity. The hatches in the greenhouses can remain closed which makes it easier to maintain a high and favorable level of CO2. The new way of regulating the climate as well as the CO2 level gives the plants the perfect environment to grow in. The technology also reduces the use of fossil energy.
Fresh cucumbers and juicy tomatoes
Greencap’s technology aims to improve the quality and quantity of crops. Tests have been performed on both cucumbers and tomatoes with impressive results. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, quality, size and taste improved significantly.
Our fiberglass tanks play a small but important role in an incredibly exciting project that can revolutionize how food is grown in the future. We would like to thank GreenCap Solutions AS for the chance to be part of the innovative project.
