- Upgrade of the second greenhouse with the even more efficient GreenPower LED toplighting Force (TLF)
- Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact (TLC) boosted the light level to 400 µmol/s/m, for heavier branches
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting solutions, will provide grower SenZaro with a higher light level by means of a hybrid installation with the recently introduced Philips GreenPower LED toplighting Force in October. During the previous winter, a 3.36 ha greenhouse was already adapted for the growth of lisianthus, in which the Dutch company wanted to expand. To achieve this, extra HPS lighting and Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact were installed. This increased the total light level to more than 400 µmol/s/m2.
A PAR level of 400 µmol/s/m2 seems to be the new norm within lisianthus cultivation. As a producer for the top segment of the market, grower Michael Zwinkels does not want to fall behind a few colleagues who have recently preceded him. In close consultation with account manager Wilco Verkuil from Signify and installer Stolze, an efficient lighting design was made for the upgrade.
