Our newest design, now under construction near Berbera, Somaliland, is radical in many ways. This new Seawater Greenhouse is not a typical greenhouse but rather a shade net system that still contains core evaporative cooling elements developed from previous projects. Advances in our greenhouse modeling techniques have allowed us to simplify the design and drastically reduce its cost without sacrificing performance. Teaming up with the Pastoral and Environmental Network in the Horn of Africa (PENHA) and Aston University, the greenhouses are due to be completed Spring 2017.
