Fluence’s years of experience collaborating with vertical farmers have proven PhysioSpec™ BROAD R3 is the optimal spectrum choice for crop propagation and full-cycle cultivation for a multitude of leafy greens, microgreens, herbs and other vegetables. Under Fluence’s BROAD R3 spectrum, the newest RAZR system is 18% more efficient than previous generations. The RAZR Modular System’s mechanical mounting and electrical wiring are also highly configurable and easily integrate into various racking styles. The system’s flexible design makes it uniquely suited for scale in a vertical farming environment.
“Vertical farmers are fueling some of the greatest innovations in modern crop production,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “By simplifying the food supply chain, vertical farms can deliver fresh, nutritional produce to localized regions. These intricate cultivation facilities typically require custom, multilayer racking systems with specialized LED lighting solutions that can optimize plant development through various growth stages. Our RAZR Modular System not only reduces overall operational expenses through its efficient and configurable fixtures, but also offers a proven spectrum for propagation and vertical cultivation for leafy greens, microgreens, herbs and other vegetables.”
Fluence distributes its RAZR Modular System to vertical farmers directly and through partners such as Ecopromt, a leading greenhouse consultancy. Ecopromt’s cultivation experts have designed a fully integrated cart system featuring the RAZR Modular System as well as a proprietary irrigation system. Ecopromt’s integrated cart system has been installed in multiple vertical farms throughout Europe and the U.S.
“Our team has been designing, developing and growing under the most advanced cart systems for vertical farming for nearly a decade,” said Tom Jönsson, head of sales for Ecopromt. “Ecopromt’s fully integrated system is easy to install and built to scale as a vertical farm grows. Combined with our irrigation system and configurable design, RAZR’s modular capabilities provide homogenous light distribution across crops, enabling growers to produce consistent, high-quality plants under some of the industry’s most efficient lighting technology.”
Based in Brooklyn, New York, aquaponic vertical farm Upward Farms leverages Fluence’s RAZR Modular System to optimize growth cycles for several microgreen and baby green variants through different stages of cultivation.
“The RAZR system is flexible, efficient and powerful, which allowed us to quickly and seamlessly integrate it into our grow stacks,” said Ben Silverman, CTO of Upward Farms. “RAZR’s modular nature allows us to tailor the lights to our system while increasing efficiency and reducing grow time.”
