Climate cell on wheels helps Dutch growers with LED dilemma

"Everybody wants to do 'something' with LED and has the feeling something has to be done with it, but what? There's so much going on and being offered - how to get started and what to do?" That's why the Hortilux & Green Simplicity teams created a research solution for the industry. Currently they're on the road with it: for two weeks, a climate cell on wheels is shown at various companies. This Thursday it will be shown at Hortilux themselves.

The roadshow is fully booked, and every day two or three companies are visited: breeders, seed growers, research institutes and growers of course. For example De Ruiter and Syngenta are being visited. The climate cell on wheels drives there, and the possibilities of LED in horticulture, places without daylight, research and vertical farming are discussed. There's a lot of interest and many colleagues are visiting the climate cell. "We're not getting bored", the Hortilux / Green Simplicity teams agree.

"For example the roadshow offers an insight on the possibilities in research, but also how to translate it to a solution for production: going hybrid with SON-T or LED only, in a greenhouse or a vertical farm. With Hortilux & Green Simplicity we can have a fair amount of knowledge and can help with this."

This Thursday the roadshow will be at Hortilux, (Vlotlaan 412) and their employees can take a peek. Between 10:00 - 13:00 everybody is welcome to enter, also other people / companies with interest. Just send a message to Martin Moes or leave a voicemail (+31(0)6-22981504) in advance.
