World’s Biggest LED Horticultural Project Doubles in Size

The massive 28-hectare greenhouse – 350 km south west of Moscow, Russia – currently uses over 120,000 luminaires to boost the growth of tomatoes and cucumbers. The LED lighting has been so successful in enabling year-round growing, improving supply and predictability and saving energy that owner Agro-Inwest will now double its size to 68.5 hectares, an area equivalent to 100 soccer pitches. It costs half as much to run as the high-pressure sodium lighting installations it is replacing. The supplier, Signify – formerly Philips Lighting – had proved very accurate in projecting yields. The Putin government is determined that Russia becomes self-sufficient in vegetables and the project is set to significantly secure the supply of domestically-grown tomatoes and cucumbers into the Russian market.
