Logistics specialist sees energy bills thaw at Telford premisesMember News
EcolightingUK has recently been specified for LED lighting at the 206,350sqft warehouse at the Brockton Business Park in Telford for client CML.
CML stores and delivers a wide variety of food products across the ambient and chilled temperature ranges and offers a series of added value solutions to its clients. CML tailors a logistics package to suit each customer’s requirements, regardless of size, and has gone from strength to strength in recent years after it struck a joint venture agreement with Culina Group in 2014.
As part of its continued growth, CML expanded from its 75,000sqft property on the Brockton site, which it leased in 2009, to assume full occupation of the 15-acre Business Park site in January 2012. Following a long standing relationship with Culina Group, Ecolighting was chosen for its reduced costs against competitor prices and the efficacy of its fittings to replace the lighting in place.
The logistics giant needed efficient lighting for its three chill warehouses, link tunnel and packing area and chose Ecolighting’s Pegasus LED high bay, Sapphire Linear and Altos emergency LED lighting for the installation.
The site was assessed by Ecolighting and 268 160W 120 degree beam angle Pegasus LEDs were selected for the three warehouses, with an added six for the link tunnel, 33 60W Sapphire LEDs were fitted in the packing area and Altos emergency lighting luminaires were also installed.
Robert White, Group Facilities Manager at Culina Group, commented, “As part of some general improvements to the warehouse we decided to switch to LED lighting to reduce our running costs. We chose to work with Ecolighting as we have worked with them for years and have always been impressed with their work and the savings we make. We are very pleased with the results.”
Ecolighting’s Pegasus uses an Osram driver and top quality Osram LEDs giving 166 lumens per watt and up to 80% energy saving in installations. At CML, this will result in an annual saving of more than £61,000 in replacement lamps, climate change levy reductions, maintenance and carbon credits.
Ecolighting’s compact Pegasus luminaire is a top specification LED High Bay luminaire and one of the company’s most popular light fittings. Encased in a robust yet lightweight and stylish aluminium body, the sealed dustproof construction prevents access from insects and makes for easy cleaning. The Pegasus High Bay luminaire is used by Ecolighting frequently for a wide range of applications from industrial, warehouses, cold stores and manufacturing to sports halls and retail stores.
For the Telford site’s packing area, the Sapphire luminaire was chosen. Sapphire from Ecolighting is one of the company’s most popular LED luminaires for use in commercial and industrial environments. Manufactured by Ecolighting in the UK, Sapphire features high output chip-on-board LEDs and OSRAM driver encased in a linear body with a polycarbonate diffuser, all rated IP54.
The Altos emergency luminaire from Ecolighting is part of the company’s flagship LED high bay lighting solutions designed for use in mezzanines, warehouses, in manufacturing, freezers/chillers and areas with high ceilings.
Unlike many other lighting companies, Ecolighting has its own team of lighting and electrical installation engineers as well as carrying out the lighting scheme design with Relux software in the early stages of client lighting projects. The company also manufactures its luminaires in the UK and uses UK-sourced Osram control gear and LED chips. All of this means that the company has much better control than many and can present better value for money to clients. The company is also a Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier, assessed to BSEN ISO 9001:2015 and are members of the Lighting Industry Association.
As one of the UK leaders in LED lighting solutions to commerce and industry, Ecolighting has worked with many other big name companies such as Amazon, Bibby Distribution, Kuehne Nagel, Debenhams, Carlsberg, Cadbury and Great Bear.
