Energy Saving Case Study 4: Tata Steel Works, Port Talbot, Wales

 

"Energy reduction through improved ambient lighting and decreased maintenance costs not only helps the environment, but also makes financial sense"
— Matteo Littera, Energy Manager, University of Salford

 

Background
16 Panels installed in a 4x4 set up application Inspection Area. Tata Steel is a steel works in Port Talbot and the ROBUS Panel lights were installed in an area where cold steel is inspected. The LED Panels were chosen because they offer a signifi cant reduction in maintenance costs and time replacing lamps.

They also provide a better environment to assist with product inspection due to uniformity of light output. 16 Panels were installed in a 4 x 4 set up application - replacing 4 x 18W T8 Recessed Modular fittings.


Prior to the installation of the Panel lights, a lamp change in a modular fitting would involve shutting the inspection area down for a full day - at a significant cost and inconvenience to the plant.


The LED Panels have a 50,000 hour average lamp life - eliminating the inconvenience and cost of frequent lamp changes, while continuing to provide the high light output that is essential to the inspection of the steel produced.

Energy Saving Case Study 5: University of Salford, Manchester, England

 

"Energy reduction through improved ambient lighting and decreased maintenance costs not only helps the environment, but also makes financial sense"
— Matteo Littera, Energy Manager, University of Salford

 

Background
32 Panels installed at the university reception. The University of Salford prides itself on having a tradition of innovative thinking and commercial success - as well as being environmentally responsible. Their Energy Manager demonstrated these traits by choosing the ROBUS LED Panel light when the reception area of the university was recently refurbished.


The Panel was chosen for the clean-line aesthetics it gives to the building, the low heat output it produces and the re-lamping cost savings it offers.


32 Panel lights were installed (a mixture of standard and emergency) replacing 37 existing 4 x 18W T8 Recessed modular fittings. Any initial scepticism prior to installing an LED option was dispelled by the fact that five less Panels were required than previously installed to provide the same lighting level.

Energy Saving Case Study 6: Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, England

 

"The University has indicated that by using ROBUS Panels the projected saving will be at least 50% as well as a reduction in ongoing maintenance costs."
– University Facilities Department

 

Background
Anglia Ruskin University is based on 2 main campuses, one in the centre of Cambridge and one in Chelmsford - both offering students a state-ofthe-art learning environment.


The Cambridge campus is undergoing a programme of redevelopment to create an inspiring, flexible, yet sustainable environment. One of the redevelopment projects was the refurbishment of the Mumford Library.


The ROBUS Panel had been used in the refurbishment of one the Chelmsford campus buildings, so it was a natural choice for them to install the same fi ttings throughout the library.


A reduction in the library's maintenance costs as well as installing lighting that fulfils the university's sustainable environment policy were two key deciding factors when choosing the ROBUS Panel.

240 Panels were installed in the library, classrooms, office and the cafeteria replacing 4 x 18W recessed modular fittings.

Energy-saving Case Study 7: Warwickshire College, Rugby, England

 

"The University has indicated that by using ROBUS Panels the projected saving will be at least 50% as well as a reduction in ongoing maintenance costs"

— University Facilities Department


 

Background
36 panels installed on the stairwell. Warwickshire College has achieved signifcant improvements in their resource efficiencies by implementing a comprehensive range of energy saving initiatives. Installing high efficiency lighting was a key focus when building their new Rugby centre.

They were also faced with an installation problem when it came to lighting the stairwell. The stairwell is a metal frame construction with limited options regarding installation of conventional light fittings. The decision to use the ROBUS Panel as a wall mounted fitting provided a solution to this installation problem.


36 standard and emergency panels were installed throughout the stairway. The ROBUS Panels have a low heat output allowing them to be wall mounted and are also safe to touch, therefore no height restrictions apply.

Energy Saving Case Study 9: College Ystrad Mynach, Wales

 

"The college needed lighting that provided a suitable working environment and kept energy costs down. The Panel light has provided this."
– Philip Rheidol, Rheidol  Electrical Services Company Ltd

 

Background
The College Ystrad Mynach was originally opened in 1959 to meet the needs of the local coal mining industry, but the college has seen dramatic changes in recent years with a full modernisation of the campus buildings.

The ROBUS Panel light was chosen to be installed in the newly built College of Further Education as they were looking to introduce new LED technology that allows energy savings and reduces C02 emissions.

Reduced maintenance and no lamp changes were also very important as maintenance can only be completed when the areas are empty of students and staff.

The Panels are located in the college's office where they provide a natural light with little heat output.

Energy Saving Case Study 19: Tavistock Court Home Care Centre, Bedfordshire, UK

 

Product used: SPACE LED Panel Light and OYSTER Panel Surface Fittings. 

 

There were 91 Space LED Panel Lights and 27 Oyster Fittings installed throughout the care home.

 

 

 

 

"The service provided by our local consultant is friendly and professional. Full lighting design is provided with on site advice regarding the products available (new & existing) and what suits the customer best. I have full confidence in the service and specified products after many years of successful installations. The lighting always exceeds expectations and fully compliments the refurbishments they form part of. 
Lighting levels, colour and looks form a very important part of replacement lighting as well as the normal cost considerations.  Cost savings from LED lighting have not only come from the energy usage of the unit but also from making the lighting almost maintenance free (emergency light testing considered).
The cost saving from not making regular lamp (fluorescent) changes pays for the fitting cost helping to reduce the payback period considerably. A good broad product range means I can keep uniformity of manufacturer across the building stock whether common area or residential. ROBUS always have a solution ready.”

Energy Saving Case Study 22: Talybont Gate, Cardiff University, Wales

 

Product used: 24W OYSTER LED Surface Fittings

There were 850 ROBUS 24W OYSTER fittings installed throughout the complex 

Testimonial: “Talybont Gate is a brand new, modern development with large communal areas in flats and extra facilities included for sports and recreation. We opted for ROBUS lighting for a number of reasons including its high light output which brightens areas such as corridors which have no window, its smooth clean curves which match in with the modern aesthetics of our building as well as the high energy savings compared to traditional sources of lighting like fluorescent tubes. The Oyster was the perfect fitting for the entire building as it is so versatile no matter what the area is used for. The fit and forget application saves us time and money on maintenance as well as replacement fittings. Energy savings reduce carbon footprint which Cardiff University strive to achieve as part of their environmental policy”

Energy Saving:
Reducing energy costs and therefore carbon emissions is of primary importance for all building types. Utilising the latest Surface Mount Diode LED and driver technology these fittings provide a cost effective, energy saving solution for applications ranging from illuminating store cupboards or bathrooms to larger communal lounge areas.  Perhaps as important, huge savings in maintenance and traditional lamp change costs can be achieved to provide very short paybacks where automatic switching by sensor is employed which reduces traditional lamp life considerably OR continuous use operation causing ballast life to be adversely affected.
