RFP Submission Details

 

1.   About Aerospring Hydroponics

 

Aerospring Hydroponics manufactures patented Aerospring hydroponic systems, leveraging low-pressure aeroponic technology. Started in 2015 by husband-and-wife co-founders, Thorben Linneberg and Nadine Keller, Aerospring Hydroponics has sold over 4,000 hydroponic systems globally in over 25 countries. The Aerospring systems were borne from a desire to create a functional, high-yielding system with a focus on usability. To date, the majority of Aerospring’s sales have been direct-to-consumer, and now we are launching our turnkey hydroponic systems for commercial use.

 

2.   About Aerospring Hydroponic Systems

The patented Aerospring hydroponic system is a modular system that leverages low-pressure aeroponics. While hydroponic farming has proven to use less water, promote faster growth and higher yield, in less space, than traditional soil farms, aeroponic systems have advantages over other hydroponic systems namely using up to 30% less water, greater nutrient absorption and better oxygenation than other hydroponic systems. Aeroponic systems also grow up to 20% faster than other hydroponic technologies.

The systems are geared towards growing leafy greens, herbs and fine herbs, and other vegetables such as tomatoes, chilis, etc. We estimate that a pole of 36 plants can yield approximately 5-8kg of fresh produce per month, dependent on the cultivars grown and the environmental conditions.

 

The Aerospring system is modular and can be built to various heights (the sizes and configurations above are models available for consumer purchase).

As such, the application of Aerospring hydroponic systems in a farm setting allows the farmer to customise the capacity of each vertical pole to meet their yield targets.
