Fluence by OSRAM will become the LED provider of choice for The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings a publicly traded, premium organic cannabis company based in Ontario, Canada.
Projected to be one of Canada’s 10 largest cannabis producers, TGOD will use Fluence LED lighting solutions to deliver cannabis year-round and push its cultivation capabilities to meet the increasing global demand for organic cannabis grown sustainably.
TGOD—which has previously deployed Fluence’s LED solutions in its existing state-of-the-art growing facilities—will now deploy Fluence’s high-intensity, high-bay VYPR lighting solutions in two additional hybrid greenhouses measuring over 1.4 million square feet in total. These new facilities will open in phases starting August 2019 in Ontario and Quebec.
Sustainable and costs
"Their LED technology aligns with our commitment to sustainability while reducing operating costs. We take tremendous pride in growing high-quality, certified organic cannabis, and we view Fluence as a strategic partner that helps us build efficiency,” says Csaba Reider, president of The Green Organic Dutchman
According to them, Fluence’s VYPR Series gives commercial growers the ability and efficiency to grow at any time of the day, any time of the year. By incorporating Fluence’s LED lighting solutions into its state-of-the-art hybrid greenhouses, "We will achieve exceptional crop uniformity, create new energy efficiencies that keep operating costs low and eliminate seasonality and consistency issues," they further explain.
“We’re excited to work with The Green Organic Dutchman on this innovative project as it rapidly expands its operations and improves energy efficiency, crop yield and plant quality,” says David Cohen, CEO of Fluence.
