    The challenge


    Raes strives for a beautiful, full crop of high, uniform quality. That could no longer be achieved with the old lighting (HPS with a light level of 50 µmol/m²/s). Besides plant quality, factors as fire safety, service life, air humidity and the energy consumption are important to Raes.

    The right lighting


    In January 2016, the decision was made to install GreenPower LED toplighting (65 µmol/m²/s). This top lighting was installed on a surface area of 4,000 m². The lamps give off uniform light distribution and the modules (High Output module DR/W LB) can be switched on and off separately. 

    “The uniformity and the quality of our crops have greatly improved. This is how LEDs provide better rooting,’’ according to Raes. Due to the higher light level and the better uniformity of the light, the crop is stronger, fuller and more compact.


    Production is at least as important as the quality of the crop. They have increased too thanks to the LEDs. The energy costs have also dropped. ‘’We are very satisfied,’’ says Raes. ‘’We are getting even better results than expected!’’
