Saarland farmers see the potential of regional products

‘Initial requests from growers for our new greenhouse already scored’

The great new construction project of Saarland property owner Albert Winzent has already attracted much interest in the area. Although the permits to build the 10-hectare glass house in Warndt have not yet been fully secured, the entrepreneur has already received his first requests from regional growers. “It is still just an idea. First, we need the encouragement of the authorities in question," says the owner.

The new building plans are being registered this week, with the Saarlander Ministry and according to Winzent the concept  has 'no difficulties'. Although he is well-versed in the field of renewable energies due to his long career and is primarily a sponsor of this project, Winzent is convinced that the sales market for regional products is there. “The demand for regional products such as sausage and cheese is huge, here in the Saarland as well. This makes the construction of a greenhouse a logical step, so that in the future we can also offer vegetables from our own soil.”

End of 2019
The idea is to use the property in question to create a large-scale commercial estate and to take full advantage of the cheap energy of the nearby thermal power plant. If Winzent receives the planning permits, the new building should be completed by the end of 2019.
