KUBO is a sustainable manufacturer!

KUBO has been building and realising complete greenhouse projects for many years, both in the Netherlands and abroad. One of KUBO’s greenhouse concepts is the well-known Ultra-Clima concept that is considered innovative, sustainable and energy-saving in every respect. The production of these greenhouses was always completed under direct management.

The Vlotlaan industrial estate in Monster is the location of both the ultra-modern KUBO head office and the production plant to manufacture the high-tech greenhouses. The plant is equipped with the most innovative installations, such as welding robots and laser cutting machines. From today, the machine fleet is powered by electric current generated by solar panels installed on the roof of the factory hall.
Royal Brinkman has mounted a total of 2,267 solar panels with a total installed capacity of 623.42 kWp. According to Wouter Kuiper, the Managing Director of KUBO Group, this is a profitable investment.
‘Like our greenhouses, the final result should be both sustainable and profitable. That principle applies equally to our own investments.’ The collaboration with Brinkman was very satisfactory. Wouter Kuiper: ‘The crew switched quickly and adequately, the proposal was on the money, and the quality was excellent. What else could you ask?’

The construction of the 190-hectare Miraah solar project, using Dutch greenhouses in the desert, has begun.

The building of one of the world’s largest solar plants in the desert of Oman is in full swing.

The solar energy facility will generate steam used to make heavy oil more fluid so that it can be pumped out for further use. Currently, steam is generated through burning natural gas, which is a scarce resource in Oman needed for higher value uses. Smart and sustainable technology is being used for this special kind of oil extraction.

The solar technology uses large curved mirrors to concentrate sunlight and generate steam from water. The mirrors are housed inside a greenhouse, protecting the solar collectors from high winds, sand and dust common in desert oilfields.

The greenhouses, provided by KUBO, will be fitted with deck wash robots, high-tech greenhouse technology, and overpressure and filtration systems to keep moisture and dust out of the greenhouse.

The solar plant will be built on the edge of the Amal oilfield in the south of the country for Petroleum Development Oman in which Royal Dutch Shell has a 34% share stake. PDO is the Sultanate’s largest Oil & Gas producer and is working in collaboration with GlassPoint Solar to deliver the Miraah project.

KUBO projects in Russia

KUBO has both traditional and Ultra-Clima projects running in various Russian towns including Lipetsk, Balakovo, Magnitogorsk, Shakhty and Vyborzhets. There are already around 30 ha of greenhouses in Russia that feature the Ultra-Clima concept. It is a greenhouse that combines all the requirements of modern growers while managing higher yields, maximum food safety, minimum energy and water consumption, minimum CO2 emissions and improved returns.

The RusPrix Award

The key aim of the RusPrix Award is to encourage and stimulate Dutch companies, public organisations and people in politics and culture who have achieved great things for Russia. RusPrix is an initiative run by the Russian Embassy in the Netherlands. For more information about the RusPrix award, visit
