CML cuts warehouse lighting bill with EcolightingUK

Telford, Shropshire, UK: CML has cut lighting costs by £61,000 at its warehouses at the Brockton Business Park in Telford.

Ecolighting UK assessed the 19,000sq metre warehouses and installed LED lighting to replace exiting fittings.

CML stores and delivers ambient and chilled food and struck a joint venture agreement with Culina Group in 2014.

CML expanded from its 7,000sq metre property on the Brockton site, which it leased in 2009, to assume full occupation of the 15-acre Business Park site in January 2012.

CML needed efficient lighting for its three chill warehouses, link tunnel and packing area and chose Ecolighting’s Pegasus LED high bay, Sapphire Linear and Altos emergency LED lighting for the installation.

The site was assessed by Ecolighting and 268 160W 120 degree beam angle Pegasus LEDs were selected for the three warehouses, with an added six for the link tunnel, 33 60W Sapphire LEDs were fitted in the packing area and Altos emergency lighting luminaires were also installed.

Robert White, group facilities manager, Culina Group, said: “As part of some general improvements to the warehouse we decided to switch to LED lighting to reduce our running costs. We chose to work with Ecolighting as we have worked with them for years and have always been impressed with their work and the savings we make. We are very pleased with the results.”

Ecolighting’s Pegasus uses an Osram driver and Osram LEDs giving 166 lumens per watt and up to 80% energy saving in installations. At CML, this will result in an annual saving of more than £61,000 in replacement lamps, climate change levy reductions, maintenance and carbon credits.

Ecolighting’s LED High Bay luminaire and one of the company’s most popular light fittings and is frequently used in warehouses, cold stores, manufacturing and industrial sites, sports halls and shops.The Sapphire luminaire used at CML’s site is made by Ecolighting and has high output chip-on-board LEDs and OSRAM driver encased in a linear body with a polycarbonate diffuser, all rated IP54.

The Altos emergency luminaire from Ecolighting is part of the company’s flagship LED high bay lighting solutions designed for use in mezzanines, warehouses, in manufacturing, freezers/chillers and areas with high ceilings.

Ecolighting has its own team of lighting and electrical installation engineers and carryes out the lighting scheme design with Relux software in the early stages of client lighting projects.
