Unique Vertical Farm Concept
Netled has developed unique water-cooled led lighting that can be combined to heat recovery system. Integrated lighting, led cooling and recovered heat together form a highly energy efficient system, where vertical farm turns from energy eater into energy creator. Together with Novarbo´s cooling, humidity control system and heat reuse the vertical farm concept also saves fresh water considerably compared to traditional greenhouse growing. Automation steers the climate and keeps the growing environment always optimal. Technologies of the concept have several patents granted and pending.
Light amount and light distribution are always designed according to plant specific needs. Netled offers together with its trusted partners turn key -solution, which includes all the design work, equipment and installation work. Vertical farm concept can be brought into any built space. Please contact us already in the planning phase of building, in order to optimize the surroundings for vertical farm concept.
High energy recovery
With vertical farms there´s always the challenge of keeping the farm in right temperature. Water-cooling of leds takes extra heat away from the layers. It also enables longer lifetime for led fixtures and helps to recover the heat energy from led lighting. At system level the combination of dehumidifying technology and water-cooled leds leads to a very high energy recovery rate.
Saving fresh water
Only a small fraction of irrigation water is bound to the leafy green itself. Normally in traditional cultivation, major part vaporizes into the air and is finally ventilated outside. In Netled-Novarbo Vertical Farm Concept all vaporized humidity is bound into water droplets and caught into water circulation to be reused in irrigation.
ROBBES LILLA TRÄDGÅRD
” I´ve been looking for ways to increase the efficiency of my growing process. These Finnish technologies are so intelligent and advanced, that other multilayer techniques I´ve seen are left far behind. The brilliance of this concept lies in full control of heat energy and recovery. With this technology, in addition to space efficient enhancement of growing surface, I´m also saving in heating expenses of my traditional greenhouse area.”
