When sky-high energy prices threatened business continuity, Rosa Danica A/S, a leading Danish producer of potted plants, turned to Hortilux for advice on ways to reduce its lighting costs.
Maatschap Van Wijk is one of the leading chrysanthemum nurseries in the Netherlands. A real family business where the special spray chrysanthemum Radost and Radost Cream are grown on 2.4 hectares. Maatschap Van Wijk is affiliated with VannoVa and grows beautiful chrysanthemums for the top end of the market.
Changes in the market forced Nico and Albert Kiep to focus on cultivating chrysanthemums with higher branch weights. Hortilux worked with the pair to develop a tailored grow light solution to meet their new needs.
A good, constant light level is essential to grow beautiful Phalaenopsis. For this reason Opti-flor replaced the old 600 Watt lighting installation by HSE fixtures with 1000 Watt lighting.
