Greenhouse for vegetable cultivation, Iceland
HORTURION HPS 600 W E40 lamps
“When we first introduced BLV HORTURION in Iceland, we saw right away that it was quality product.
And we are proud to say that only one year after the introduction, around 50% of the growers in Iceland are using lamps from BLV. Not only the products, but also the support we receive from BLV including consultancy and light planning, are great.”

|Company:||This 5000 qm² greenhouse, located close to Flúðir, is divided into three main zones: cucumbers on 2000 qm², tomatoes on 1800 qm² and lettuce on 1200 qm².|
|Challange:||Planning and realisation of an ideal lighting solution to increase the yield substantially and to achieve year round production. In the cold climate of Iceland, cucumbers need a minimum 200 W/m2 additional light, tomatoes 240 W /m2 and lettuce still 150 W/m2.|
|Installation:||NPK replaced the old bulbs by BLV HORTURION HPS 600 W lamps within the entire greenhouse. With this solution, the needed light intensity could be realized, resulting into an increase of yield of up to 50% and year round production.|
