The nature of the environment within the factory made the choice of equipment especially challenging. The harsh environmental conditions meant that the system not only had to be energy efficient but also had to be installed to a very specific standard. This called for thought in the design and consideration for the maintenance of the lighting in the future.
The project included the installation of the most efficient, next generation lighting and related controls. Utilising the DALI lighting control protocol, the system ensures the lighting provides the required LUX levels while being dimmed either up or down depending on output. The result is a 50% saving when it is compared with the cost of a traditional lighting solution, saving 170,041 kg CO2 per year.
