Die Hessen-Lampe


There should be no flexibel parts (no rotating lamp). The protection class should be IP65 minimal (no external ventilator). The life expectancy should be 100.000 hours minimal. The light management is to adapt the requirements of the greenhouse.

The operation mode of the lamp should be optimized by research into growing performance of different agricultural crops by the partner LLH (Landesbetrieb Landwirtschaft Hessen) an Hochschule Geisenheim University. Trials with plants in the greenhouse an in climate rooms should ensure the suitabilityfor horticultural practice.

Hochschule Geisenheim University will carry out analysis of plant physiologie to examine the sustainable improvement of inner and physical quality by the use of the new plasma light.

It will be expectet that the new plasma lamp generates increasing growth and a better inner and physical quality per inserted energy.

Cost and therby energy savings will be the result, which will amortize the high price o the system over a relatively short time

Because of the extensive area of greenhouse in Germany and Europe there is a high market potential, which can be estimated at to €1.5 M. per annum in Germany alone.
