November 12, 2021
In Japan, an electrically conductive glass will be used in the construction of a strawberry greenhouse. ClearVue Technologies of Australia has been awarded the contract to build a strawberry greenhouse as part of the Aqua Ignis Hot Springs project in Sendai
City's Fujitsuka neighborhood. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year. ClearVue Technologies is in charge of the implementation of the project. An estimated 333m2 will be covered by a total of 187 ClearVue glass panels, with the fabrication
process taking approximately 12 weeks.
Using tempered glass, ClearVue's glass technology incorporates solar photovoltaic cells around the perimeter of an
insulated glass unit (IGU) which is made of tempered glass to provide energy. The photovoltaic glazing provided by ClearVue will also contribute to the environmental credentials of the Aqua Ignis project, with the panels on the greenhouse
expected to generate approximately 8573 kWh of renewable energy per year, according to the company's regional modeling. In addition to being the first order from a Japanese licensed distributor, it has the potential to lead to larger future orders from the
same distributor if the relationship continues.
In addition to being centered on a natural sodium chloride/bicarbonate hot spring, this project has the potential to develop into a major tourist destination in the region, with visitors being able to enjoy a strawberry garden as part of their experience.
According to Executive Chairman Victor Rosenberg, the Aqua Ignis greenhouse project in Sendai is an excellent starting point for ClearVue distributor Tomita because it provides invaluable insight into the installation and technical nuances of the ClearVue product
before Tomita embarks on larger-scale greenhouse projects throughout the Japanese market. Additional marketing and promotion for both Tomita and ClearVue will be carried out as a result of the project's high profile, highlighting not only the benefits of the
ClearVue product but also its adaptability to a wide range of application situations as a result of its adaptability.
Mr. Hiraaki Tomita, President of Tomita Technologies Ltd., stated in his comments on the Aqua Ignis greenhouse project that the company was "extremely pleased" to have been able to specify the ClearVue product for use in this high-profile health-focused tourism
project in Sendai. The addition of the ClearVue system to the strawberry greenhouse roof, despite the fact that the project's objectives are unique, further enhances the project's distinctiveness while also improving the project's environmental credentials.
Our team is extremely excited to be collaborating with ClearVue on this project, which will be our first time working together.
