    Glenwood Valley Farms upgrades their lighting with Philips LED toplighting linear from Signify

     

    May 6, 2022

     

    Langley, British Columbia, Canada – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, in lighting solutions, provides Philips GreenPower LED toplighting linear to Glenwood Valley Farms for their lighting expansion. Glenwood Valley Farms is an established vegetable grower located in Langley, British Columbia with a 6-hectare cucumber growing operation and was looking to improve fruit quality and increase production volume and operational efficiency.

     

    Glenwood Valley Farms was one of the first growers to trial Philips GreenPower LED toplighting linear when it was introduced in North America in 2015. Over the years, Glenwood have conducted additional trials with lighting from several LED manufacturers, at times in combination with traditional HPS lighting. The results indicated that there were more favorable crop yields with Philips LED-lit crops, prompting Glenwood Valley to choose Signify and Philips LED toplighting for their recent lighting upgrade.

    After extensive testing, Glenwood concluded that a high light output over their cucumber crop optimized their production. With the support of Signify Key Account Manager John Galbraith and Application Engineers Chris Strom and Rachelle Winningham, a custom light design was developed for Glenwood. To maximize their light output, the upgrade consisted of installing five continuous lines of high output Philips LED toplighting linear in an eight-meter wide bay​. The installation of more than 4,000 toplighting linear modules was completed in early 2022.

     

    “Herb Schlacht and his team at Glenwood Valley Farms conducted an in-depth analysis of lighting products, options, and scenarios before making a final decision,” said Udo van Slooten, General Manager Horticulture LED Solutions at Signify. “We are proud of Glenwood’s results of growing under Philips brand LEDs and we are proud they chose our Philips GreenPower LED lighting.”

     

    The project was supported by Climatrol Solutions Ltd., a certified Philips Horti LED partner in Langley. Climatrol specializes in creating custom greenhouse systems for growers. Climatrol president, Mark Pedersen, commented about the Glenwood Valley project: “Glenwood conducted exhaustive research and we were happy to support them through the research process, vendor selection, and installation phases.”

     

    Through cooperation with Glenwood’s electric utility provider, BC Hydro, and the support of Climatrol and Signify, Glenwood Valley was able to capitalize on a significant rebate opportunity with their purchase of Signify’s high efficiency LED lighting.
