LED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award

  1. 1. LED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award
  2. 2. 2 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award
  3. 3. 3 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award Port of Leith, Edinburgh In March 2013 Forth Ports was named Edinburgh’s greenest company in awards that recognise the city’s best businesses. Lighting innovations at Leith docks were among the initiatives that helped the UK port operator clinch the prize at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. There was more to the lighting improvement, however, than just its green credentials.
  4. 4. 4 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award Lighting challenges This is Shed 3 – a specialist bulk store for storing food commodities, most often grain It’s an environment where spontaneous ignition is possible and dust a constant hazard The 400W SONs were clearly struggling to provide adequate illumination - each one actually drawing about 440W
  5. 5. 5 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award Lighting challenges Lamp replacement could only be carried out when the shed became empty of cargo That could mean a wait of a few days or even a year When there is product stored, you can't access the lighting for maintenance Replacement lights would have to have long life and need limited maintenance
  6. 6. 6 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award Lighting challenges In the workshop 400W HPS high bays caused work delay by taking up to 30 minutes to re-strike The need for regular replacement involved clearing the floor of plant being worked on so that the scissor lift could be used to access fittings In the cruise ship terminal lamp replacement involved team of 3 men The scissor lift had to be taken there via public highway with a two-vehicle escort, then dismantled to get through the door and re-assembled inside Having to work around cruise ship timetables and staff scheduling meant failed lights could end up waiting a while, never mind the cost
  7. 7. 7 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award The solution It must be a food product safe luminaire to avoid dust build up and comply with food regulations Solution 1 13x400W SON high bays replaced in Shed 3 with 8x172W Dialight LED high bays Solution 2 400W HPS in workshop and cruise terminal replaced with 150W Dialight LED high bays Traditional HPS high bay v Dialight LED high bay
  8. 8. 8 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award The result Changing to LED resulted in >75% energy saving in Shed 3 Over 60% saving in the other areas Options to introduce presence and daylight detection to further improve efficiency Equivalent CO2 reduction in all areas CO2 emissions cut by 0.4 tonnes per light annually Burden of maintenance eliminated as each LED high bay carries Dialight's 5-year performance warranty Shed 3 after changing from 13 x 400W SONs to 8 x 172W LED high bays
  9. 9. 9 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award Installation snapshot 400W SON and HPS replaced by 150/172W LED high bays Maintenance burden and cost eliminated No more failed lamps or re-strike delays 60-75% reduction in lighting energy use Improved colour rendition CO2 emissions cut by 0.4 tonnes per light annually Options to introduce presence and daylight detection to further improve efficiency
  10. 10. 10 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award HPS Voluminous body Fragile Total power consumption 440W Sensitive to voltage change Slow warm-up Accumulation of dirt Contains dangerous and harmful gases High CO2 emissions Low energy efficiency LED Small and compact body Resistant to shock and vibration Total power consumption 150-172W Non-sensitive to voltage change due to its wide voltage range Instant on/off ability Doesn’t accumulate dirt, easy to clean Contains no harmful gases Low CO2 emissions High energy efficiency
  11. 11. 11 DialightLED lighting helps Forth Ports win green award Testimonial “As one of the UK’s largest ports groups, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. We are delighted with the reduction of energy consumption achieved with the added benefit of elimination of maintenance and the associated disruption. Together these help us to operate more efficiently and deliver operational benefits while we are also minimising our impact on the environment. We are now actively examining other areas of the business which could benefit from this technology.” Dr. Derek McGlashan, Environment and Energy Manager, Forth Ports Limited
