Founded in 1999, Thyssenkrupp is a multinational giant in the engineering industry with subsidiaries in multiple sectors. The facility in Preston specialises in Aerospace engineering and needed a powerful lighting system on a time crunch.
The main requirements discussed during the consultation were to reduce energy costs, Co2 emissions, and improve lux across the site to levels specified by Thyssenkrupp. Most of the building required a minimum of 500 lux. CEMA Lighting’s planning team created a lighting design to ensure the optimal products were proposed. CEMA lighting’s market-leading 190 lm/w Super Lumen highbay was the perfect match to cut down energy consumption and meet that 500 lux goal with 38,000 lumens per luminaire.
Another area of the lighting system that required particular attention was the tooling area. This area required a minimum lux reading of 1,000, meaning additional trunking was needing to accommodate for the additional fittings to be installed. The project was all carried out with minimal disruption to Thyssenkrupp by CEMA Lighting’s in-house installations team, CEMA Installations. Despite the team installing additional luminaires and increasing the level of light, Thyssenkrupp was still able to achieve financial savings of 59% overall.
Now the lighting system is complete, Thyssenkrupp can continue their work more efficiently and to a higher standard with a lighting system that is tailored to their needs.
