FloraCulture International: Huge efficiency step in water-cooled LED grow lights of Oreon

IJSSELSTEIN, the Netherlands: Oreon, Dutch-based innovative developer of high-end LED grow lights, presents its new fixture at the Fruit Logistica exhibition in Berlin, Germany.This latest model produces a light output up to 2080 μMol/s with an efficiency of 3.1 μMol/J. The Oreon Grow Light 3.0 is therefore the most efficient high output LED fixture in the market.Efficient in multiple ways The water-cooled Oreon Grow Light 3.0 has a light output of 2080 μMol/s and a power consumption of only 670W. This means 15% more light output and a 15% efficiency improvement compared to the previous generation.This LED fixture can easily replace even the best HPS fixtures in the market, while producing almost 10% more light and saving 40% energy. Compared to other LED fixtures, the Oreon Grow Light 3.0 is extremely powerful, resulting in less required fixtures. This saves on installation cost, but more importantly — less natural sunlight is blocked.Water-cooling advantagesOreon LED fixtures operate on an active water-cooling system which comes with a number of advantages. There is no radiation heat from the lamps, resulting in a more stable climate and making it easier to maintain greenhouse temperature and CO2 levels. An extra economic advantage is the opportunity to reuse the recovered energy. What’s more, the active water cooling ensures a low fixture operating temperature which benefits both the light output and the lifetime of the driver and LEDs.This latest model retains all of the qualities and characteristics that makes the Oreon Grow Light so popular, from its rugged design, glass LED cover and IP67, to its low operating temperature and easiness to maintain.The new 3.0 model is suitable for voltages ranging from 200V up to 480V, making it ideal for all types of electrical installations. The Oreon Grow Light 3.0 is available in a broad range of light spectra and comes with different lenses that result in either a wide or narrow beam angle to give the best uniformity on the crop.Oreon will be exhibiting at the Fruit Logistica from the 6th till the 8th of February 2019 in hall 3.2, booth C-26.Click here to read the full article on FloraCulture International.

Belgian tomato group Tomeco is switching to a hybrid lighting system with water-cooled Oreon LED fixtures.

Tomeco, one of the biggest club tomato growers in Belgium, will be installing a new lighting system at the Hortipower location, measuring a total of 4 acres. The entire area of this partnership is over 125 acres, 40 acres is currently being lit with traditional HPS lights. Hortipower will be able to realise significantly more light output with this new hybrid lighting solution. Tomeco stands for diverse, healthy, top quality tomatoes, grown in a sustainable manner. Sustainability is central to how this organisation operates, the choice for LED lighting is therefore a logical step, which perfectly links into the corporate group’s vision. The Tomeco growers all enjoy an intensive working relationship. This collaboration has resulted in the improvement of the operating result through knowledge sharing and making the business results transparent. This has enabled the group to continue to invest in the latest growing techniques.This will result in even better “feel good tomatoes”. This way of working allows Tomeco to continue to develop sustainable relationships with its customers. Hortipower has opted for water-cooled LED top lighting for the hybrid lighting system. The ‘Oreon Grow Lights 2.2 – EV’ can be connected to a 200-480VAC installation. This means the new LED fixtures can easily fit into the existing lighting installation. The same cabling can be used and there will be no need to invest in new switch panels, resulting in significantly lower installation costs. Where there used to be 4 HPS lights installed underneath a truss, 5 lights will now be mounted on the same truss in a so-called checkerboard pattern. The specially designed ‘batwing’ lens results in a proportional light distribution above the crops, even when only the LED installation is switched on.The Oreon Grow Lights provide half of the light output. With the addition of water-cooled LED top lighting to the lighting system, Tomeco is expecting to be able to realise an increase in crop yield without an increase in energy costs. The complete water and electricity installation will be provided by Voshol Warmte-Elektrotechniek. The installer from Bleiswijk is expected to complete the installation at the start of October, in time for the new lighting season.Tomeco Services BVBA – Berkelaar 7 – 2330 Merksplas – BelgiumTel.: +32 (0)14 700 509 – GSM: +32 (0)497 499 492E-mail: info@tomeco.be
