Oslo, 17th March 2022
Rift Labs AS announced today that they have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with ONNA Greens AS, the leading vertical farming company in Norway.
The agreement covers a pilot project to tailor plant growth conditions, monitor plant performance, and explore ways to optimize vertical farming operations by using Rift Labs’ Hydroponics Lab, an advanced research and optimization station, based on Rift Labs’patented LED technology.
“We are pleased to announce this important milestone in our partnership with ONNA, and we are really excited to be going into live operation with such a significant and credible player in the industry,” says Halvard Aagaard, CEO at Rift Labs.
Rift Labs has been working with partners ONNA and Crayon since autumn 2020 to develop the Hydroponics Lab system, a project which has been supported by Innovation Norway. The system especially makes use of Rift Labs’advanced dynamic LED lighting, traditionally reserved for other industries such as photo and video, which enables extremely precise and high-quality light in different wavelengths to be continuously optimized for plant growth.
“We are excited about collaborating with Rift Labs to optimize light conditions and other parameters to improve our efficiency and sustainability in food production,“ says Reinier Wolterbeek, Interim CEO & Chief Product Officer at ONNA.
