Arctic is a cold storage facility that offers secure temperature controlled and ambient warehousing & logistics. They operate double shifts, out of an 80,000ft2 facility, spread over multiple fabrication halls.
Arctic Cold Storage approached PereGreen Energy in 2016, looking for an intelligent lighting system for their cold storage facility that was more efficient than the current metal halide and SON fixtures in place.
The following criteria needed to be achieved:
Increased light levels in the cold rooms, dry goods areas & loading docks
Reduced energy consumption and costs
Eliminate maintenance and associated costs
Following a site visit and evaluation, the PereGreen team identified that Arctics’ facility would benefit from censoring, due to its large size and relatively low occupancy. They also determined that due to an abundance of natural light in the hall, Arctic would save considerably with integrated daylight sensors.
Replaced the existing 250w metal halide & SON low bays with LED fixtures in all the cold rooms and docking areas
LED linears, with integrated daylight sensors, were used to replace the low bays in the dry goods area
Installed exterior lighting to the loading docks and truck parking areas.
Energy consumption reduced by 91% in the dry goods area and 75% in the cold rooms, a saving of just over €10,500 per year.
Light levels on the floor increased by over 60% on average
Annual maintenance costs were completely eliminated
Warehousing & Cold Storage
BioAtlantis Ltd. is a biotechnology company working to provide solutions to problems caused by stresses in plants, animals and humans. They have a 30,000m2 facility in Co. Kerry.
BioAtlantis are in the process of upgrading their Kerry facility to incorporate a new processing plant. This plant is covers multiple levels with lighting requirements from 5m to 20m in height. While processing is heavily automated, it is an extreme work environment that requires excellent light levels throughout.
Essential elements of the lighting upgrade included:
Maximum light levels for the processing areas
All fixtures to be IP65 rated for processing environment
Intelligent system, where practical
Emergency lighting & escape route design
Reduce ongoing maintenance, especially given the ceiling heights and the inaccessibility
PereGreen Energy designed the lighting for the entire processing facility, across multiple levels, including all exterior lighting and emergency lighting. This bespoke lighting solution included:
Occupancy sensors on all main thoroughfare lighting
All fixtures IP65 rated for wet environment
Emergency lighting throughout
Exterior wall mounted & pole mounted security lighting with high CRI for CCTV
High lux levels where there are staff doing manual work
Energy consumption reduced by 89% versus equivalent metal halides
Annual maintenance cost savings of €4,800 per year
Average light levels above 300lx throughout the processing area
Light levels above 200lx on all access areas & walkways
Uniformity throughout – no shadowing
IP65 & Vaporproof fixtures top all wet, high temperature & high humidity areas
Wall mounted 200w LED security floodlighting around entire factory including silos
Warehousing & Cold Storage
Supplying the automotive, aviation and industry sectors, RORA MOTION specialises in the production of large-scale industrial sealing systems, high-precision elastomer moulded parts, 2k composite parts, silicone moulded parts, plastic parts and assemblies. They operate 24/7 continuous shift patterns that requires high levels of light for detailed manufacturing.
RoRa Motions completed a large extension to their existing manufacturing facility in Co. Kerry. Efficiency & sustainability were key design criteria for the new wing. PereGreen Energy were contracted to design and install an energy-efficient lighting system.
Achieve optimum light levels
Maximize energy savings on a continuous shift patterns
Utilize the availability of natural light
Retrofit existing warehouse
Eliminate ongoing maintenance
Self-reporting of weekly/monthly consumption
Guaranteed 10-year warranty
PereGreen designed and installed a bespoke intelligent lighting solution using the Digital Lumens system. This included:
