In many cases, industrial lighting has not changed significantly in the last twenty or thirty years. Many factories have SON, metal halide and/or traditional batten fluorescent fittings. Not only are these technologies inherently inefficient in terms of their electrical usage and light delivery, but they are typically always left on whether a particular production or workshop area is occupied or not; hence creating significant levels of energy waste.
At a time when energy efficiency is at the top of the agenda, assessing and implementing the correct lighting solution is highly important. Sourcing the right suppliers who can deliver the right solution, without production down-time, can be a difficult task in itself. PLS manufactures and supplies a range of high-level and low-level lighting solutions that can deliver savings of around 75%, whilst still delivering the correct lighting levels that your operations require.
"We have successfully implemented a new lighting system within our finished goods warehouse, with greatly enhanced lighting quality and proven energy savings. We have verified the savings internally, based on energy spend for the unit, and are seeing savings of circa 65% - 75% over a 6 month period, compared to the previous year.
Upon commencement with PLS, our plan was to run this new system as a pilot scheme before installing across the entire factory, and we have a confirmed design and costed project for the wider system. The installation was carried out efficiently and effectively using a contractor known and recommended by PLS who we found to be very professional and compliant to our H & S requirements as well as being flexible and accommodating to our demanding production needs. We have worked with numerous facilities installation companies over the past couple of years and have found PLS to be very supportive in all of our dealings with them from concept design throughout the project to delivery of the agreed solution."Mike Harding - Facilities Projects Manager, Health & Safety Co-ordinatorView case study
As previously stated, energy usage within production facilities is high owing partly to the 24/7 nature of the operations. Much of the lighting used is not only inefficient in terms of its energy usage, but also there are no controls in place to automate its use in relation to variable occupancy and presence of daylight.
Our leading lighting technologies help deliver high quality light at reduced running costs. This is achieved by combining leading lamp and luminaire design with intelligent sensor controls, which intelligently turn fittings on and off (or dim them down) when there are no people present or there is a certain level of ambient daylight present.
The graph opposite illustrates the energy usage within a production hall over the course of a week. The area in blue clearly shows the difference in energy consumption, therefore the savings delivered.
