Van Geel Orchid switches to water-cooled full-LED
Phalaenopsis cultivation is energy intensive. During the energy crisis, many growers were forced to terminate their operations and only a few continued, including Van Geel Orchid. Last year, at other Phalaenopsis growers, the water-cooled LED fixtures proved significant added value for both the plant and the energy management of Phalaenopsis cultivation. This convinced Van Geel Orchid (based in Erica, Drenthe) to switch to full-LED lighting from Oreon.

Grower uses aquifer below greenhouse for water-cooled LEDs
The old story about the cannabis industry goes that many basement cannabis growers struggled with the complexities of commercial cannabis cultivation, as going from small scale to large scale without proper expertise has proven to be extremely difficult. Yet, some cannabis growers were very much aware of what commercial horticulture means, and they leveraged their knowledge and experience to show what a mature cannabis industry would look like. Organic Remedies out of Pennsylvania is one of those growers.
Water-cooled LEDs are essential to any expansion
Koppert Cress has planned two expansions this year, which are both focused on technological innovation, CO2 neutrality, and energy savings. The choice of LED is a logical one. Koppert Cress was the first grower in the world who believed in LED lighting to conserve energy and thus gain more control over the development of the crop. Devised in partnership with Oreon, the water-cooled concept involved capturing heat from the LEDs and storing it in the ground. It’s a successful and sustainable concept that fits seamlessly into Koppert Cress’s vision. After six previous installations, Oreon’s water-cooled LED lights can now almost be called a starting point for future development phases of the company.
