Agriport A7 is a 500 ha project location designed for large scale greenhouse development. Some of the world's most innovative energy solutions are being developed in the Wieringermeer. Since the start in 2005 over 600 million Euros is invested in horticulure and energy infrastructure. Recently Microsoft has started to build their 38 ha datacentre facility. The heat from the data centre, which in conventional buildings disappears through the roof, is being channelled to the greenhouses to grow peppers and tomatoes. The cooperation between a greenhouse complex and a data centre is a splendid example of cross-sector innovation.
