Crop LED lighting provider, Fluence Bioengineering (Fluence), has announced its partnership with Ontario-based organic licensed cannabis producer The Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD).

Having partnered with Fluence, before, this time TGOD will be deploying Fluence’s high-intensity, high-bay VYPR lighting technology in two additional hybrid greenhouses measuring over 1.4 million square feet in total, says Fluence. These new facilities will start to become operational starting August 2019 in Ontario and Quebec.

“Fluence’s LED lighting system uses 40 per cent less energy than standard high-pressure sodium lights,” says Csaba Reider, president of TGOD. “Their LED technology aligns with our commitment to sustainability while reducing operating costs.”

“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,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence.

Currently, TGOD has a planned capacity of 219,000 kgs and is building 1,643,600 sq. ft. of cultivation and processing facilities across Ontario, Quebec, Jamaica and Denmark.
