Elektra Awards 2016

UK: Plessey wins LED Lighting Product of the Year

Plessey has won the prestigious Elektra Award for LED Lighting Product of the Year for its Attis-7 grow light. The fourteenth annual Elektra Awards took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Thursday 1st December celebrating excellence in design, innovation and technology from across the electronics industry with over 400 guests.

Plessey has over sixty installations in research centres and universities in the UK and overseas demonstrate the benefits of using Plessey’s LED grow lights. This is now being recognised in the market and is gaining momentum. Plessey’s Attis-7 grow light features energy saving and plant response, no cooling fan, high efficiency, patented heat dissipation design and a built in power supply.

Jonathan Barton, Plessey’s Director for Grow Lights, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the award for the category 'LED Lighting Product of the Year' in the prestigious Elektra Awards ceremony last night. LEDs have largely proven their effectiveness as grow lights and their ability to save energy versus existing sodium grow light technology. The big challenge for adoption in today’s market is to make horticultural LED grow lighting a commercially viable proposition for growers. Our next generation lighting product to be released at the IPM Essen show in January continues to build on the success of this our first product.”

Plessey recently announced that it will be exhibiting its new horticultural LED grow lights at the IPM Essen event from 24-27 January 2017 at stand 7B25 at the Messe Essen exhibition centre in Essen, Germany.
