Case Study

North West Manufacturing Site

Site Facts

  • Location: North West
  • Multiple areas – Internal & External different lighting needs
  • Manufacturing (inc. Hot End), Warehousing, Tunnels,  Car Parks & Offices
  • High Mast external lighting
  • 24/7 Operational Hours
  • 365 Days per year
  • Over 500 Members of Staff
  • 499 Luminaires
  • 892,662.11 kWhrs of electricity on Lighting P.A

The lighting issues on site…

    • Over 25% of the Lighting faulty
    • Nearly 95% of the Lighting units 20 years old +
    • High Failure rates
    • High Maintenance costs for Lamp/Ballast Replacement
    • Costly access and maintenance of high mast lighting
    • Restricted Access to Lighting units due to Plant Machinery
    • Insufficient Light Levels with Poor Uniformity
    • Depreciated Light Lux levels
    • High Energy Usage
    • 892,662.11 kWhrs of electricity on Lighting P.A
    • No Lighting Control

    The Challenge…

    • Design and install an LED lighting system for some of the internal areas
    • Remove the high mast lighting and install external lighting on the building
    • Work around site operations so that production is not affected
    • Reduce the Lighting Energy Consumption by 50%
    • Minimize the maintenance requirements for years to come
    • Increase Light Levels with enhanced Lighting Uniformity
    • Introduce a Consistent White Led colour spectrum
    • Utilize Day Light Harvesting where possible
    • Photocells to all External Lighting
    • Increase current Lux Levels by at least 10% (area dependent)

    The Result…

    • An energy efficient LED lighting solution has been deployed
    • External lighting is now on the building and not the high mast towers
    • High mast towers have been removed
    • 499 LED luminaires have been installed
    • Fast track project delivery in 4 weeks
    • Lighting Energy Consumption reduced by 68.63%
    • 612,350.4k Whrs saved P.A – 3,061,752k Whrs saved over 5 years
    • All products are a minimum L80 50,000hrs compliant
    • Enhanced Lighting Uniformity
    • Daylight Harvesting Detection
    • Photocells to all External Lighting
