Ngee ann partners Siloso Beach Resort on worm project

Two final-year students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic have developed an automated system prototype to help Siloso Beach Resort in Sentosa automate their caretaking process for its wormery, which has close to one million  earthworms. The earthworms produce organic fertiliser for the eco-hotel’s  plants and vegetables and for them to thrive; their bedding habitat needs  to be constantly monitored to ensure the appropriate level of alkalinity and moisture.   

SMC electric actuator series LEYG and LEMB are used in the prototype project  to transfer the probes to measure the pH level and moisture content of the bedding in each tray. Apart from being user-friendly and hassle-free, this  innovative solution also increases productivity as it frees the staff to perform other tasks. In addition, it reduces the human error inherent in manual testing.
