Aermec heat pumps help decarbonise farming


In two ground breaking low carbon farming initiatives in East Anglia, Aermec’s heat pumps are being used to increase British tomato production by 12%.

The projects, involve the installation of 29 Aermec heat pumps that will provide 64MW of heating and is one of the largest heat pump projects in the UK so far.  The heat pumps will capture the waste heat from nearby water recycling centres to provide the necessary growing conditions.

The tomatoes will be grown in two of the largest greenhouses in the UK, using a hydroponics vertical growing system which uses 10x less water and will reduce carbon emissions by up to 75 per cent.

The UK is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, this project is a major step forward towards the decarbonisation of farming.
