Where We Grow
Agraflora has deployed over $30-million in plant, property and equipment expenditures (PPE) at its phase 1 Delta greenhouse complex retrofit in preparation for receipt of its standard cultivation licence from Health Canada. Agraflora’s Delta greenhouse complex is second in size and magnitude only to the Smiths Falls facility owned by Canopy Growth Corp., the world’s largest cannabis company. By way of additional comparison, Agraflora’s Delta facility is 100,000 square feet larger than Aurora Cannabis Inc.’s facility in Edmonton, Alta., and it is also more than 700,000 square feet larger than the current size of the Leamington facility owned by Aphria Inc.
Delta Greenhouse Complex is equipped with industry-leading cultivation infrastructure, including:
- Estimated $190-million replacement value;
- Fully integrated on-site natural-gas-powered power plant;
- Providing ample heat and electricity, while repurposing carbon dioxide emissions to benefit the plants;
- Proprietary energy-efficient air exchange;
- Advanced climate and humidity control management infrastructure;
- Ebb-and-flow watering systems to enhance complete irrigation recapture and water treatment;
- 1.5-million-gallon hot water storage tank configured to store energy produced during the day, for redistribution during non-peak hours, thereby increasing operational efficiencies and reducing associated energy costs;
- Multistage supplemental lighting augmented by natural sunlight to foster optimized illumination equilibrium.
