Sky Greens in Singapore is the World’s First Low Carbon, Hydraulic Driven Vertical Farm.
Sky Greens uses a patented vertical farming system in which rotating tiers of grow troughs rotate around an A-frame structure for increased growth per sqft without the need to supplemental lighting like in most tiered greenhouse operations. This keeps their carbon footprint low while maintaining high volume output in a small square footage.
Their frame can be as tall as 9 meters with up to 38 tiers of growing troughs. By rotating around the frame, the plants receive uniform sunlight,
irrigation, and nutrients as they pass through different points in the structure. The rotation is powered by a patented hydraulic water-driven system which harnesses flowing water and gravity to move the troughs around the units.
