Perry van der Haak decided to expand his cultivation systems in 2005. One of these was an Automatic Vehicle (AV). A vehicle that picks up containers in the work area and brings them to the cultivation area. Unique to this AV? Its small size. Its dimensions make it suitable for driving along the narrow space along the gutter. In this way, optimal use is made of the growing space. Meanwhile, this AV has been driving back and forth daily for 16 years. As Perry van der Haak stated at the time: “CODEMA has always made solid systems. They use heavy materials and that’s necessary, because a system like that has to last for years.”
Commissioned by Perry van der Haak, in early 2022 we are adapting the functionality of this AV to perform a reverse operation. The vehicle will then automatically pick up containers from the cultivation area and bring them back to the work area.
