March Foods Ltd. Installs Dialight DuroSite LED Lighting Fixtures
Nov 30, 2010 March Foods, one of the UK’s food contract manufacturers and packing businesses, has installed LED lighting fixtures.
Interior Control replaced the 84 x 450W HPS lamps on a one-to-one basis with the Dialight DuroSite Series LED High Bay. This highly robust 150W fitting features eight arrays in a compact oval pattern that enables it to direct light efficiently with less wastage and delivers an immediate saving in power of 66%.
The LED lighting has instant-on ability, so it works well with occupancy sensors and this has further increased energy saving to 72% as well as reducing carbon emissions by over 100 tonnes per year. The oval pattern of the arrays also means less wasted light on racking and more directed at floor level in the aisle.
As a British SME, March Foods was able to have its LED installation funded by a 4-year interest-free loan of 38,000 from the Carbon Trust which offers a 1,000 loan for every 2.5 tonnes of CO2 saved, so the capital expenditure is effectively funded by the energy savings. The payback will take less than three years.
