Nurs­ery gets a bloom­ing great re­sult

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

When you’re in the busi­ness of beau­ti­ful cut f low­ers, mak­ing sure the grow­ing con­di­tions are just right is a real fo­cus. The glasshouse tem­per­a­ture needs to be per­fect, no mat­ter what the weather is do­ing out­side.

Paul Loader, a di­rec­tor at K and L Nurs­eries, knows how im­por­tant it is to heat things up, es­pe­cially in the win­ter months. He turned to Aurora to as­sist with se­cur­ing the right sys­tem for his nurs­ery.

K and L Nurs­eries con­sid­ered a num­ber of other providers be­fore de­cid­ing to work with Aurora. “The ser­vice from Aurora was ex­cel­lent” says Paul. “They had com­peti­tors but Aurora re­ally came through for us.”

K and L Nurs­eries, which spe­cialises in grow­ing ger­beras and roses, in­stalled an Alfa Laval plate heat ex­changer to main­tain a con­sis­tent tem­per­a­ture in their glasshouses, based just out of Christchurch.

With a con­cept orig­i­nat­ing in Hol­land, and tech­nol­ogy brought in from Aus­tria, Aurora worked along­side Paul and his team to cre­ate an ef­fi­cient sys­tem that also has en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits.

The sys­tem is the first of its kind in New Zealand.

“It was a very tricky project. It’s the first in the coun­try and we’ve done some rad­i­cal things. It’s been risky but it’s worked re­ally well,” says Paul.

“We got fund­ing from the En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity (ECCA) be­cause this project is par­tic­u­larly sus­tain­able and ecofriendly.”

Clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion was im­por­tant to the project and this is a par­tic­u­lar strength for Aurora.

“Aurora was ex­cel­lent, very good. They kept in touch, which is im­por­tant and they’re a nice bunch.

“They came down and had a look at what we needed. And best of all the price was good!” says Paul.

Stun­ning cut f low­ers are now f lour­ish­ing all year round thanks to a strong part­ner­ship be­tween Aurora and their client K and L Nurs­eries.

The com­bi­na­tion of world lead­ing Alfa Laval heat trans­fer tech­nol­ogy with Aurora’s project and sys­tems build­ing ex­per­tise will al­low us to of­fer our val­ued clients the most ad­vanced , ef­fi­cient and di­verse range of in­dus­trial heat trans­fer and pas­teur­iza­tion so­lu­tions.

At Aurora we stand close be­hind our prod­uct and all our in­dus­try lead­ing brands are backed by ex­pert ad­vice, pre­mium prod­uct, in­stal­la­tion and sched­uled ser­vic­ing that is sec­ond to none.

All this is ul­ti­mately de­signed to make your next de­ci­sion an easy one. No mat­ter what stage of your process you’re at right now, make Aurora your process equip­ment part­ner.
