On the 11th, Sweden’s Heliospectra announced that the Danish Cannabis Pharm company’s new production equipment has selected Heliospectra’s horticultural lighting and control system. The company ordered Heliospectra’s ELIXIA LED lighting solution and HelioCORE light control software to fully automate the lighting environment and produce the highest quality medical cannabis. It is reported that Heliospectra will ship during the first quarter of 2019.
According to official sources, Cannabis Pharm is currently building a new high-density vertical cultivation system in Randers, Denmark. The company has partnered with Heliospectra and Canada’s Montel to combine centralized LED lighting management strategies with state-of-the-art mobile racks to provide an overall solution that optimizes crop quality and maximizes production and business performance.
Ali Ahmadian, president of Heliospectra, said Denmark is fast becoming one of the largest producers of medical cannabis in Europe. The European market continues to expand the medical cannabis industry, and standardized high-quality products have become the key to success. The life cycle of cannabis goes through several different stages of growth, each with different requirements for environmental factors such as light intensity and spectrum. Using Heliospectra’s smart ELIXIA LED grow lights and HelioCORE? control software, growers can automatically adjust light and environmental prerequisites according to crop growth needs, thereby optimizing crop growth conditions and enhancing the energy efficiency of growth.
According to Heliospectra, the global trend toward the legalization of medical marijuana has driven the development of expertise in this area, and the company has partnered with various institutions and companies to expand its knowledge in the industry. Since the beginning of this year, the company has cooperated with medical marijuana cultivation research institutions from Canada, Australia, Macedonia, and Denmark.
