Tierr@_de_N@die: seawater and sun, it is all you need to farm tomatoes. 30 people working in this facility will be able to grow 17,000 tonnes of truss tomatoes per year.
The facility uses more than 23,000 mirrors to capture sunlight and direct it to a central receiver at the top of a 127-metre «power» tower.
All the water used for irrigating the crops is piped from the Spencer Gulf and converted into fresh water using a thermal desalination unit.
At its peak it produces 39 megawatts of thermal energy, which is used for electricity, heating and making water.
