LED Horticultural Lighting Enabled by OSRAM Opto Semiconductors

Nov 19, 2010 In Honkajoki, Finland, millions of pieces of OSRAM Opto Semiconductor’s TOPLED LEDs are used in horticultural lighting system by Netled Oy. They are designed and installed in a curtain structure of 10 strips that measure 25 meter in length each. By creating the right wavelengths and intensity, these lighting installations are expected to achieve up to 60% energy savings. The curtain structure will reduce the “light pollution” in the skyline.

In addition, certain wavelengths and color temperature can make the fruit amount, weight or biomass grow faster based on the recent studies. By using more predefined light for example in tomato growing the joules spent per kilogram of vegetables is reduced. With cucumbers the yield can be increased by more than 20%, the vegetable quality is improved, and the production season will be lengthened.

The project is initiated by Netled Oy on research and promotion, and Amity on design and development, while the lighting system is manufactured by BCM in Malaysia.
