Customer Challenge

 

When they began building the Siberia BV facilities, Van Dijck and Willemssen were committed to creating an efficient and eco-friendly greenhouse. Siberia BV’s 9 hectare greenhouse would be used to grow lettuce and leafy greens. Challenge was to meet the increasing demand for fresh produce in the winter period.

The right lighting

 

The co-owners first considered using HPS (high pressure sodium) lighting, but Philips proposed using LED instead. With LEDs, growers can go to higher light levels, which are really needed for growing lettuce and they can produce more in the winter. LEDs also produce less radiant heat, so there are fewer quality issues with tip burn and inconsistent growth.
