- High electricity prices, insufficient natural lighting during winter and year-round demand from retailers led Den Haan Greenhouses to switch to LED lighting.
- After collaborating closely with the team from Philips horticulture LED solutions, Den Haan chose Philips GreenPower LED lighting for both their tomato and cucumber cultivation.
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Den Haan Greenhouses from Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia, Canada has recently installed state-of the art LED grow lights from Philips horticulture LED solutions for their 3-ha cultivation area. Den Haan chose a full LED solution consisting of Philips GreenPower LED interlighting and toplighting linear for the company’s tomato crop. For their long English cucumber crop, Den Haan installed Philips GreenPower LED toplighting linear. Insufficient natural light levels during winter months, and meeting year-round demands from retail customers like Loblaws, Sobeys and Costco for locally grown fresh produce, presented Den Haan with a challenge and an opportunity. So too did high electricity prices, which made the switch to LED lighting a “no-brainer”, according to CEO Luke den Haan.
