QuantoTech Solutions Ltd. Begins Deployment of Enclosed Vertical Grow System in Chilliwack

April 21, 2021 – QuantoTech Solutions has begun deployment of a highly scalable, vertical grow system in an unused room of an existing building in Chilliwak, B.C. The grow system can be scaled to fit any existing building or be housed in its own dedicated structure. This system maximizes usable grow space, especially in locations where traditional growing would otherwise be limited.

“The versatility of our system allows us to rapidly deploy in, and access, a wide range of locations be it in small northern or remote communities, underutilized urban space, and everything in between,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Founder.

QuantoTech Solutions Ltd. operates micro farms to promote food security and sustainability by bringing fresh produce to unconventional climates and under-served communities.

QuantoTech Deploys Q75 Specialty LED Lights for Vertically staged Germination at Terramera Inc.

QuantoTech Solutions has supplied LED lights for vertically staged germination and growing at Terramera for use in growth trials.

“Any vertically staged growth requires a thin form factor light to make the most of the limited space. QuantoTech’s ultra-flat Q75 panels use diffused LED light allowing plants to grow right up close to the light source without risk of burning or harming the plant,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.

“The high level of uniformity found in QuantoTech’s lights generate greater homogeneity in our trial crops. This leads to more accurate data for our research and a higher level of precision in our results,” Said Jonatan Montpetit Plant Physiologist at Terramera.
