Leading tomato producer in northern Italy invests in advanced LED technology to increase yield and improve plant quality
(GOTHENBURG, Sweden/SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 17, 2017 –
Heliospectra AB (publ) (OTCQB: HLSPY, FIRSTNORTH: HELIO), a world leader in intelligent lighting technology for greenhouse and controlled plant growth environments, announces a new order from Heliospectra’s Italian reseller Ageon S.r.l. The order goes to one of Italy’s prominent commercial tomato producers Gandini Antonio S.S. located in northern Italy, with the goal to improve plant quality and increase yield. The order is valued at $99,000 (805,000 SEK).
The order includes Heliospectra’s new E50 series lighting solution. A 500 Watt, durable industrial standard high voltage LED lighting solution, developed to complement Heliospectra’s commercial product portfolio. The E50 series significantly reduces energy and utility costs when compared to traditional high pressure sodium (HPS) lights often used in controlled environment agriculture.
“We are now starting to reap the rewards of our increased focus working with commercial producers in the food industry, as well as building strong partnerships with well-known local resellers. By introducing the high-voltage E50 solution we are able to serve a segment we haven’t been able to serve so far. Commercial growers, like Gandini Antonio, recognize the value and business advantages of upgrading to LED technology,” said Ali Ahmadian, CEO of Heliospectra.
The installation will be the first installation of the E50 series in Europe. Delivery will take place during the beginning of Q4 and be visible in the accounts in Q3 and Q4.
