LED grown tomatoes

Wim Peters Kwekerijen
Someren, The Netherlands


Proprietor Wim Peters is the third generation of the Peters family to grow tomatoes, and he has overcome a disaster that literally wiped his business off the face of the earth. In 2016, a massive hailstorm completely destroyed all 16 hectares of his greenhouses on two sites in just a few short minutes.

GreenPower LED toplighting in the greenhouse of Wim Peters

Customer challenge


After looking at several different options, Peters decided to build completely new greenhouses equipped with the most advanced technologies. Although family-run businesses often have strong traditions, Peters manages to combine a respect for experience gained in the past with a keen eye for present-day possibilities and opportunities. That was why he decided to install LED lighting in the first place as a cost-effective way to produce fresh, high quality tomatoes in the winter months.

The right lighting 

 

In October 2017, Peters completed construction of two ultra modern new greenhouses to replace those destroyed and an additional greenhouse to expand operations. The new greenhouses are two meters higher, reaching seven meters in total. They are equipped with a sophisticated water purification system as well as a vertical ventilation system, allowing better climate control and CO2 distribution and uptake.

 

Peters chose to double the LED lighting area to about 11 hectares with a new hybrid lighting installation that combines Philips GreenPower LED interlighting High Output with HPS toplighting.
