The Brief:

Veolia were seeking a low energy solution to their various facilities across UK. They were seeking a complete solution from survey of site, installation and post monitoring of energy savings. The product needed to be of excellent quality and with at least a 5 year warranty. Most of the existing mounting heights were over 10 meters.

The Solution:

Access to the lights was extremely restricted due to the position of recycling materials and plant. We needed a reliable solution as lamp changing was a costly exercise. Due to the mounting height and to avoid any re-wiring, a high powered product was required. We chose the LG Electronics high bay 180W. This proved more than a replacement for the existing 400W metal halide. The LG€™s inherent narrow beam angle of 68° pushed the light down to the floor even from 10 €“ 12 meters mounting heights.

interLED provided a complete service including installation, which was provided out of hours, over a single weekend to avoid any disruption to the plant.
