Meanwhile, Ostra International Projects BV has executed the Mexican turnkey storage projects successfully.
It concerns the recent realization of modern potato cold stores in northern Mexico. This year there are a total of six cold stores renovated and refurbished.
It is a turnkey contract whereby Ostra works with both Dutch and Mexican suppliers.
This contract includes storage for total 8,000 tons potatoes in boxes.
The existing buildings have been partly demolished and then rebuilt as a modern potato store house. The cold stores are equipped with all modern gadgets to store potatoes to 9 months. The cold rooms are equipped with modern box suction system in which temperature, humidity, CO2, ozone and sprout inhibitor are regulated entirely by the computer.
Since 2009, Ostra International realized in Mexico about 22,000 tons of modern potato cold stores along with many suppliers.
