INDO was successfully awarded a tender for the supply of the LED lighting for a new glasshouse installation to one of the largest organic fresh herb producers in Northern Germany.
The client grows a large variety of fresh herb crops including basil, parsley, dill, coriander, chives and rosemary. INDO’s bid included the completion of lighting designs and simulated calculations providing optimised PPFD, based on spectra recipes for the Twin INDO ELEMENT, designed to optimise crop growth.
The client was particularly impressed with the lifetime benefits of INDO’s patented electronics technology – Direct Drive®. This delivers a tenfold improvement in the lifetime of the grow lighting system compared with competitors’ units. This has given the grower a truly maintenance-free lighting solution, backed by our 10-year warranty. The client was also able to take advantage of funding to assist with investment in low carbon technology. INDO worked in partnership with the client to ensure all requirements were met, enabling them to take full advantage of the grant.
Energy consumption has been reduced by 40% without impacting the crop yield, and with an installation that won’t need any lamp or driver changes for over 100 years, the client is saving valuable time and resource that can be invested in other areas of the business.View product >
