Fluence Expands EMEA Footprint with Horticulture Partners in Papenburg, Germany

Fluence by OSRAM is expanding its business in Europe and announced the partnership with growers and other horticulture specialists in Papenburg, the Emsland region of Germany.

Given Papenburg’s decades-long history of attracting horticulture experts, Fluence’s innovative lighting solutions for horticulture are a natural fit for the region’s tomato, cucumber, leafy greens and herb growers.

Elektro Evers, an engineering firm specializing in greenhouse technology, is Fluence’s exclusive systems integrator in the Papenburg region. Elektro Evers assists customers with installing, integrating and maintaining Fluence’s horticulture lighting systems. The company’s managing director, Norbert Bröring, says Fluence’s partnership is well-suited for the region.

With LED solutions installed, many local farms report yield increases and more efficient growing cycle, as well as optimal energy use.

Papenburg’s Gartenbauzentrale—a 100-hectare food cooperative representing 49 family farms—recommends Fluence’s LED solutions to help members produce high-quality, consistent herbs and vegetables throughout the year. The energy savings resulting from LED use also enables Gartenbauzentrale members to apply for EU funding granted for resource conservation.

For Reiner Borrmann, leveraging VYPR 2p lights with his basil crop yielded more flavorful, intense-tasting basil after replacing his greenhouse’s HPS lighting fixtures. Borrmann’s farm includes 4 hectares of greenhouse space.

Fluence’s general manager of EMEA, Timo Bongartz, said, “We are delighted to become an integral part of Papenburg’s cultivation ecosystem to enable growers to succeed in an extremely competitive environment,” Bongartz said. “With our horticulture lighting solutions, they are producing higher- and better-quality yields in less time while garnering significant energy savings. We’re delighted to nurture these partnerships through continued collaboration in the region.”
