Notice Abstract

The Purchaser is inviting tenders on the terms set out in this further competition for the supply, delivery and installation of Controlled Environment Plant Growth Cabinets. We seek growth cabinets with high light availability for standard plant growth. Specifically, our experiments will require stepped control of light from maximum/close-to-maximum intensity, to shade-like conditions, multiple times in a day. Ideally, these simulations of a sun-shade regime will not result in significant disturbance of background temperature and relative humidity, which will need to be appropriate for tropical crops. Because we have already invested in a modular racking system to enable high density planting, we aim to procure cabinets that will be efficient to use with our existing racks. The facility will be used for the RIPE project “Improving Rubiscos”, and may be complemented in future by further purchases of matching equipment.
