Energy-efficient lighting specialists, Lutterworth Ecolighting is helping Carlsberg to cut its lighting costs by approximately 70% following the installation of state-of-the-art lighting in Carlsberg’s national and regional distribution centres.
As part of its drive for greater energy efficiency across its estate, the beer manufacturer brought in consultants EHS Projects to source a cost-effective alternative to its current lighting arrangements inside six of its centres across the country.
EHS Projects recommended products from Lutterworth Ecolighting’s Ecolite range to meet the need for improved efficiency, enhanced working conditions and to assist Carlsberg in its ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.
Lutterworth Ecolighting removed the traditional sodium and metal halide lighting units, then produced and installed a total of 1044 new Ecolite units.
By working closely with warehouse managers, the installation was coordinated carefully by Lutterworth Ecolighting’s experienced engineers to ensure minimal disruption to the day-to-day operation of the sites.
Each Ecolite utilises T5 photocell and passive infrared (PIR) tracking technology, meaning the lights only operate when required. In addition to the substantial energy savings that this technology facilitates, the warehouses will also benefit from superior light quality to aid productivity and to further reduce health and safety issues.
Steve Powers, Director at EHS Projects says: “We have worked with Lutterworth Ecolighting for several years now and we are delighted to be at the point in this project where their lighting solution is installed and contributing to Carlsberg’s carbon reduction commitment. The installation of Ecolite technology into the national network of distribution centres will help Carlsberg with this commitment, but will also improve the working environment for the employees and generate significant cost savings for the business.”
Lutterworth Ecolighting designs, manufactures and installs energy-efficient lighting solutions in warehousing and industrial operations throughout the UK.
