Project Greenhouse Riga District, Latvia
This greenhouse is made as a highly technological greenhouse suitable for growing cucumbers. LED lighting is used in it and the greenhouse is the first such greenhouse in the world, where a full-led lighting is used for growing cucumbers.
Hortilife B.V. had been working with Getliņi EKO as a local business partner for Signify since it started planning its greenhouses in 2011. “Hortilife and Signify helped us execute all our ideas for the cucumber project, some of them very forward thinking” according to Getlini EKO.
“Our attempt to build the first full-LED cucumber greenhouse in the world was full of professional challenges. Hortilife and Signify worked together on realizing our vision and helped us solve virtually all our issues in the engineering stage.”
