Several years ago, Frank Stevens, co-owner of Varkensbedrijf Stevens, Hilvarenbeek, came to the conclusion that his pigs and piglets are a source of heat; the heat they emit goes straight out into the open while it can easily be utilised for other purposes.
To achieve this, the pig farmer got in touch with Inno+; together they came to the conclusion that the Triple EEE system could offer a solution on heat wastage. After implementation, the first results were soon apparent. During a cold winter with temperatures of -10 degrees, the system provided an indoor temperature of +10 degrees without additional heating.
The now energy-neutral pig farm is achieving wonderful results thanks to preheating the incoming air: its pigs grew some 50 to 75 grams extra within two years.
