Mycelco is the name of the new tunnel complex owned by the Champs Group
in Canada, a group of growers that jointly market their mushrooms and
produce compost. Following an earlier investment in an indoor phase 1
complex, the group invested last year in an entirely new phase 2/3 tunnel
The installation comprises a turn-key tunnel company of 15 tunnels with a
separate hall for filing and spawning, an emptying hall and a compost
transport system running from the indoor complex to the new tunnels.
The facility now supplies around 550 tons of phase 3 compost weekly to the
farms, which are all equipped with a Dutch shelf system.
For filling activities at the farms, Christiaens supplied 5 hydraulic head end
filling machines, with the corresponding equipment.
Mycelco has placed an order for further expansion of the tunnel complex.
