One of the largest marijuana cultivation installations in the world, located in Las Vegas, will be using LED lighting, it was announced on Thursday.
Heliospectra AB, maker of intelligent lighting technologies for plant research and greenhouse cultivation, and American Cannabis Company, Inc., a full-service cannabis industry consultant and provider of proprietary and preferred products, announced they have successfully sold one of the largest LED cultivation installations in the world to a Las Vegas cannabis licensee.
Phase I of this contract represents over $672,000 USD (5.7 million SEK) in revenue for Heliospectra's LX601C lamps and is to be installed during the fourth quarter of 2015. American Cannabis, Heliospectra and the operator have designed a cutting edge facility that they say will deliver high quality end product at lower cost, with a substantially lower carbon footprint, than the current HID or HPS lamps used in similar operations.
"Not only is this our largest deal to date, it is one of the largest indoor, horticultural LED installations in the world," said Staffan Hillberg, CEO of Heliospectra AB. "This operator represents the culmination of hard work – from our product engineering to American Cannabis's facility design.
