Energy Works unlocks £1,039,765 for David Brown Santasalo
16 February 2017
David Brown Santasalo, global gear engineering experts, based in Huddersfield, wanted to improve the visual appearance of the building and show customers the company was active in reducing its carbon footprint, as well as in reducing maintenance costs.
LED lighting was an excellent way of achieving these goals, but as a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week facility, there were challenges about how to do a lighting installation without impacting production.
Following consultation with Energy Works, a fully funded LED solution was decided upon to raise lux levels, cut carbon emissions and reduced lighting energy consumption.
Energy Works designed, procured and installed the LED upgrade, working closely with the onsite team to ensure production was not impacted during the installation.
The end result is a well-lit site that has raised lux levels, reduced carbon emissions by 2,860 tCO2 and lighting energy consumption by 75%. Steve Halmshaw, David Brown Santasalo Business Improvement Leader comments:
“We used Energy Works as they were able to provide us with the perfect solution for our requirements, both a zero capital outlay and a fully managed LED solution.
"They carried out a fully extensive audit to establish our baseline and proposed savings of in excess of 1 million pounds over 10 years. We are already seeing higher savings than predicted.
"One of the biggest benefits to us as a site is the maintenance savings and being able to concentrate on our core maintenance priorities.
“The lighting has also improved the visuals of our building and shows our customers we are active in reducing our carbon footprint and improving our staff welfare.
"LED technology can be a minefield and very time consuming so it was great to let the experts do the hard work and for us to reap the rewards.”
