Dümmen Orange is a breeder of cut flowers, bulbs, tropical plants, pot plants, bedding plants, and perennials, and its core business is breeding and developing flower and plant varieties with improved characteristics and producing cuttings and young plants.
For its show greenhouse in De Kwakel, Dümmen Orange opted for a hybrid lighting system with water-cooled LED fixtures from Oreon. The Dutch Powerhouse Empress will be installed in their rose and chrysanthemum show greenhouse, which customers can visit (with an appointment) to get an in-depth look at Dümmen Orange’s latest product range.
"Our new show greenhouse is fully equipped with horticultural technology. As a breeder, we are constantly working on innovations and testing new varieties and growing techniques. Sustainability is a subject we always focus on, and Oreon’s water-cooled LED lighting is, therefore, a good fit. With LED lighting in our show greenhouse, we are giving our customers the opportunity to see this application in practice. It is also instructive for both Dümmen Orange and Oreon to be able to monitor the system in rose cultivation," says Koen Stigter, Global Product Manager at Dümmen Orange
Sales Manager Peter Barentsen on this collaboration: "Thousands of growers visit the show greenhouses every year, so for Oreon this is a unique opportunity to introduce growers from all over the world to our fixtures and water cooling technology."
The Empress lights will be installed in the chrysanthemum and rose show greenhouse in the last quarter of this year.
