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
