Farming & Agriculture

For decades, Container Refrigeration have been providing the farming & agricultural sector with modified containers, custom built for a variety of farming uses.

Container Controlled Environment for Crops

We can modify shipping containers into controlled environments for the establishment and growing of various crops. This agricultural technique allows increased crop yields and higher quality products. This is because water and nutrient flow, temperature and plant health can be closely monitored and controlled.

These Containers can be modified for…

Hydroponics: Growing plants without soil, either by having the roots directly suspended in nutrient-filled water or having the roots support in an inert medium like gravel

Aeroponics: Similar to hydroponics, but the plant’s roots are suspended in air and regularly sprayed with a fine mist of nutrient-filled water

Agricultural Machinery and Equipment Storage

The dry storage of large and bulky agricultural equipment can often be an issue. We have a range of container mounted roofkits that allow farmworkers to store these machines safely and effectively from the elements. For many farmers, there has never been a simpler way to provide large volumes of agricultural equipment storage.

We also offer a wide range of accessories to help with general and day to day storage in shipping containers. we have various ranges of racking and shelving to help kit out any container, a diverse range of condensation treatment options, remote alarms, lights and more.

These containers are ideal for temporary or permanent structures which makes use of containers as their foundation and as they don’t require heavy machinery it allows quick construction.
