We were required to reduce energy consumption as best as possible with the fastest possible payback period while maintaining current light levels or improving light levels where possible without an increase in payback period. We were tasked with replacing office, warehouse and productions areas. However there could be no impact to the working 24-hour day, 7 day a week operation.

Key Targets:
• Reduction of energy usage
• Improvement of light quality
• Payback of less than 2 years
• No disruption to day to day operations of the workforce and machinery
We used a combination of different designs of LED lighting throughout the site; this consisted of office- based 5ft twin and single LED fittings along with a small quantity of 600x600 LED Grill Panels. Within the production areas we used 5ft low wattage anti corrosive LED light fittings installed with microwave sensors, and within the warehouse areas we used our 150 Watt LED Low Bay lights installed again with Microwave sensors.

We worked very closely with the management team to ensure we were able to work in areas that were empty or not in use, so as not to get in the way of production. This worked very well and the installation completed without any issues.

Annual energy savings: £27,041
Annual maintenance savings £3,193
Payback period: 1.3 years
Total savings over 15 year lifespan: £302,340
From the initial highly competitive quote, it was obvious that the knowledge and professionalism of Procure Direct would be the right decision to use as the supplier and installer for the replacement of LED lighting.

We had an array of high bay 400w Soni's, single and twin 5ft's (standard and IP54) which were replaced with more than suitable LED replacements giving better lighting and at approx. 80% savings and that is a conservative estimate. Understanding our food factories needs and implementing the requirements without any fuss or interruption to this 24/ 7 production facility. I have already recommended them within the wider company.
