Energy consumption reduced by one third

Digiland LED helps to reduce the electricity consumption for a sheetmetal company from £9,000 to £3,000 per annum.

Wrekin Sheetmetal is a premier sheetmetal fabricator who can meet all punch, fold, weld and finish requirements. They work primarily with mild steel, stainless steel, galvanised and zinc coated steel and aluminium. They had 72 x 400 W Metal Halide lamps fitted in their factory and were paying over £9,000 a year for their lighting alone.

Solution

Digiland LED has since replaced these Metal Halide Lamps with 175 W LED High Bays, designed by POSCO, South Koreas largest sheetmetal company. Digiland LED is the sole distributor for POSCO LED products in the UK and the lighting products they supply have won several prestigious design awards. By converting to LED technology, the lighting bill for Wrekin Sheetmetal is now just over £3,000, a third of the original cost.

“After conducting our own investigation into the running costs and quality of our factory floor lighting, we decided improvements could be made. We invited lighting specialists to visit our premises to review our current status and future requirements. We came across Digiland after purchasing some audio-visual equipment. They immediately came to visit us and were extremely helpful in providing us with very detailed information with regards to our current lux readings and current running costs. This was closely followed by a detailed quotation which we found to be competitive in comparison to the other quotes we received.

We have received a very high standard of service from beginning to end and now having improved our energy efficiency, we have also vastly improved the lighting on our factory floor.”

Simon Orpe, Sales Director, Wrekin Sheetmetal

The Digiland Green Alternative

Companies such as Wrekin Sheetmetal who switch to LED lighting are not just demonstrating innovative thought by moving forward with pioneering technology, they save money on energy, electricity and contribute to a greener environment by reducing their carbon footprint. In this project, Wrekin Sheetmetal has reduced their carbon emissions from just under 60 tonnes per annum to just over 20 tonnes.

After changing high wattage High Bay Lights to low wattage high efficacy LED High Bays which replace the lights ‘like for like’ with no need for additional fittings, Wrekin Sheetmetal now save over 60% on their energy costs.
