Rail Construction Yard

The Client

They are a leading provider of engineering & management services to customers operating in market sectors which include Minerals & Metals, Oil & Gas, Power, Road, Rail Infrastructure, Telecommunications and Water. Their locomotive manufacturing facility is where many of Australia’s trains are produced, maintained and upgraded. Their facility was looking at energy savings options to reduce their power costs.

Solution

Ensol, through one of our partners, undertook an energy efficiency process which included replacing the 600+ existing 440W Mercery Vapour luminaires with energy efficient IEQ 150W Induction High Bays (100,000 Hrs Life Time). Some areas of the site were also re-gridded to optimise lumen usage and reduce energy usage even further. The external flood lights in both staff areas and the car park were also changed to IEQ 80W induction flood lights. The client was also able to utilise the NSW governments Energy Saving Scheme help to fund the upgrade project.

Result

The result was a energy savings of around 55% on their light power costs. As well as a new lighting design that included increasing lux in key work areas while optimising the light level in some over lit areas such as their bulk storage facilities.
