New Lighting System Reduces Energy by 81 Percent

“The energy consumption has been considerably reduced. In addition to this, the light levels in lux have doubled, and tripled in some parts. So it’s a win-win, less power used and better lighting levels. The employees working in the area say it’s like going to a Premier League football ground. The light levels are that good compared to what we had.”

Newport Docks is the Associated British Ports’ (ABP) largest facility in South Wales and is a main hub for servicing the United Kingdom’s industrial and commercial regions. Recently, port officials determined it was time to upgrade the facility’s lighting system because maintenance of the outdated HPS (high-pressure sodium) lighting was costly and time-consuming. Officials wanted a lighting solution that minimized maintenance expenses, reduced operating costs, and supported the organization’s sustainability efforts. They also wanted to partner with a company that would provide them with a long-term warranty on parts and labor.
