- Combined HPS and LED toplighting and irrigation on the same C-profile
- Arcadia is a leading adopter of the Dutch “New Cultivation” practices, which aims to reduce energy consumption in greenhouses, while maintaining high productivity
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced that its longstanding partner, Arcadia Chrysanthemums, a leading commercial grower of single bud chrysanthemums in the Netherlands, will equip its newest 4.7 ha greenhouse with a combination of Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact and HPS lighting. Arcadia chose the new toplighting compact product, introduced in January 2019, because of its passively cooled design and easy to install construction that supports an irrigation system and both HPS and LED lighting. This robust solution allows greenhouses to take advantage of LED toplighting benefits: improved yield, quality and crop predictability, as well as reduced energy costs.
