As artificial light in the production hall has to be used 24/7, the decision of the lighting medium was very important. Cost of lighting is a significant part of the electric energy cost in the production hall, so - taking into consideration the safety requirements – Pipelife especially looked for a reasonable and cost effective solution, thus reducing energy consumption.
An important measure of value of a lighting system is how much lux the light source gives from a unit of electric energy. In case of traditional light sources this number is relatively low, but in case of more modern light sources this figure is significantly higher.
Taking all these aspects into consideration Pipelife Hungária installed a modern, safe and durable lighting system. During the installation 120 pcs luminaries have been replaced, and by this 84.000 kWh energy per year will be saved, which represents a payback time of only 2,3 years.
The investment fulfilled Pipelife’s expectations from the point of view of energy savings and ergonomics so Pipelife Hungária plans to modernize the lighting system in the PVC hall in the same way this year.
