With the introduction of another new lamp development, the Horturion® HPS 1000W Suprema, Ushio contributes to maximising energy efficiency while offering the highest possible output.
"The new Horturion ® HPS 1000 W Suprema delivers an output of 2200 µmol/s, making it the most efficient 1000 W HPS lamp ever launched", says René Polak, director of horticulture at Ushio. "As businesses experience dramatically rising energy prices, this development is all the more significant as this lamp enables growers to achieve significantly higher yields and thus more revenues with the same energy consumption."
"The European economy has already been struggling with enormously increased energy prices for months. Especially the Dutch greenhouse cultivation under glass, with its high energy demand, is massively affected by the cost increases in the energy sector. And the concerns of the farms are exacerbated by the unstable political climate in Europe."
"Greenhouse lighting, without which a modern horticultural operation is unthinkable, accounts for the largest share of energy costs in the greenhouse sector. The costs here can only be controlled through reduced operating hours and thus lower yields, or through even more efficient energy use."
Rene says he's pleased to be able to launch the Horturion® HPS 1000 W Suprema. "With an unprecedented efficiency of 2200 µmol/s at this time. And we hope that we can at least support our customers a little bit with it," René adds.
Ushio is present at HortiContact 2022 from May 10–12 at booth #D131.
