Cool Store

The Cool store

Agronico runs the most technologically advanced seed potato cool store in Tasmania.

The potato cool store is constantly monitored and recorded for changes in temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels using innovative cool store technology from Tolsma Grisnich.

The cool store has the capacity to store over 14,000 tonnes of seed potatoes with 18 rooms of 800 tonnes each. Specially designed aeration systems allow fresh air to be circulated through each section, discharging CO2 and keeping the potatoes alive.

A large drive-through corridor down the centre means trucks can be unloaded and loaded under cover if needed.

The cool store is right next to the company’s grading and cutting lines, which has improved efficiency.

Agronico can also provide storage for other vegetables such as onions and broccoli.

Eight of the cool rooms have additional features;

  • Four of the cool rooms have heaters installed and can be heated.
  • Four of the cool rooms have humidifiers and can be run at up to 100% relative humidity.
