Who are they?

Plant Factory Cornwall is harnessing developments in lighting technology to grow salad and medicinal crops in multi-tier, hydroponic systems under super-smart LED lights.

The research could herald a huge step forward in both multi-tier production (‘vertical farming’) and hydroponics, because one of the limiting factors has always been the cost of providing artificial light and a lack of understanding of how best to use it efficiently.

What they needed

Plant factory Cornwall wanted to extend their existing facilities to allow further research into how light spectrum can affect plant physiology in vertical farming.

What we delivered

We delivered consultancy on what LED light spectra is viable using bespoke LED panels. We then installed a variety of commercially available and bespoke spectra LED panels and bars into their existing facility to expand their research capacity.
