Current, powered by GE and Jones Food Company Partner to Launch Europe’s Largest Indoor Farm

The intensive plant nursery, located in North Lincolnshire, England, will be the largest indoor farm in Europe, producing up to 420 tonnes of leafy greens per year across a growing area of 5120m2, arranged in racks rising to the height of 11m. To maximize the facility’s yield, Current by GE is installing more than 12Km of its new Arize* LED horticultural lighting solution, with a balanced light spectrum that catalyses optimal growth in every plant and shortens the growth cycle for more intensive production. The equipment is housed within a futuristic, intelligent cleanroom (or “high-care”) environment that allows crops to be grown in complete isolation from external contamination – ideal for food production as well as growing high-quality cosmetic and pharmaceutical ingredients. Production of the first crop from the Jones Food Company operation is due to start in autumn 2018. https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180607005249/en/Current-powered-GE-Jones-Food-Company-Partner
