As a result of its lighting research, De Vreede had found a light spectrum that would be most effective for its orchids and was eager to find the best LED match. A Philips GreenPower LED toplighting solution was found that gave De Vreede the best lighting and climate control to stimulate the best possible results during each growing phase of the orchids.
Philips worked with LED Horti Partner Stolze on the installation in 1 hectare of the greenhouse. ‘Our company stands for reliability and professionalism. We grow Phalaenopsis in a sustainable and environmentally conscious way.' The choice for a Philips LED solution is an excellent example of this.
Besides the possibility of designing a light combination, something which is not possible with another light source, it gives over 40% energy savings compared to traditional HPS lamps. De Vreede will have more control over the greenhouse temperature because less venting is required with the “cooler” LED fixtures, which will allow him to manage consistent Co2 levels.
