Project: Lighting upgrade in Automotive Press Shop



A leading UK Automotive company required a new lighting system for their Press Shop due to poor ambient lighting levels and expensive maintenance costs. 190 SON 400W high bay lamps at 20 meters height provided an average 200 lux across the factory.

The factory operates a 24x7 working week for 49 weeks of the year.

Their requirement was to upgrade the lighting levels to the company standard, decrease the level and cost of maintaining the fittings and reduce the overall cost of energy. Any proposed solution would have to be installed during the three week summer shutdown.




On behalf of the client, Ecopare defined the specification, researched the LED high bay market place and installed the solution providing a minimum 12 years of maintenance free lighting at 65% of the energy costs.
