BLV started in the horticulture business more than 10 years ago and introduced their first double-ended 1000W HPS lamp with 1.9 µmol/W in 2009. Their engineers continuously optimised the individual components, invested intensively in ceramics research and even integrated parts normally used in space sciences. In 2013, BLV set another benchmark and introduced a 10% more efficient lamp with 2.1 µmol/W. For BLV, it was a technological quantum leap; for greenhouse owners, this figure means energy savings of up to a seven digit number in 4 years time.
This is the best 1000w Double Ended HPS Lamp on the market. Made in Germany not China!
BLV Licht- und Vakuumtechnik was founded in Steinhoering, Bavaria, in 1968. As a manufacturer of lamps for both general lighting and special applications, the company quickly made a name for itself.
With its HORTURION series, BLV has played a key role in professional horticulture for 10 years. The company is one of the biggest producers of HPS lamps worldwide and distributes its products in more than 40 countries around the globe. Quality, efficiency, high PAR stability as well as convincing colour rendering have established BLV’s worldwide reputation as a reliable partner.
Moreover, BLV considers itself much more than just a lighting solution provider. With in-depth
knowledge of the market, scientific expertise, comprehensive consulting services – including lighting advice and light planning – and sustained after-sales service, the company is a technology partner for its customers.
Having retained its character as a mid-sized company, BLV is able to respond to individual customer requests. That’s what sets BLV apart from others.
At GreenTech 2016, the leading trade fair for horticultural technology, BLV introduced its latest
innovations of HPS and MH lamps and the new LED concept to a wide group of professionals. BLV will continue to invest in being your innovative partner in complete light solutions.
