The Challenge:

Chesterfield-based Corrugated Case Company (CCC) provides its customers with superior corrugated transit packaging and promotional material.

As part of their ambitious growth plans, they invested heavily in new equipment to help deliver their plans and sought a new lighting solution for their factory.

With their low-energy luminaires and proven ability to design bespoke, precision lighting solutions our lighting experts were tasked to provide an LED lighting solution that would significantly reduce CCC’s on-going lighting energy bills and aid precision working, whilst not compromising light quality and uniformity.

Our Solution:

We allocated a dedicated application engineer to CCC, who designed several bespoke precision lighting solutions, providing CCC with an LED lighting solution that delivered significant energy and cost savings.

After trialling various fittings to find luminaires that would deliver significant reductions in lighting energy costs, whilst providing optimal light colour and uniformity – low energy LED Luminaires from our  CLite range were chosen that supplied 85CRI and 4500 kelvin colour temperature.

This particular combination can significantly enhance the working environment, which also aids precision working, contributing to a greater feeling of wellbeing amongst the staff.

The project saw a total of 33 C120/700 fittings installed in CCC’s factory – reducing annual lighting energy consumption from 34,545kW/h (annual cost of £4,094) to just 16,558kW/h, saving £2,132.

Annual energy bills will therefore be reduced by an average of £1,962. It is also set to achieve a reduction in Co2 production of 51% in the factory. This equates to product lifetime Co2 savings of 142 Tonnes.

 Due to the lighting system’s design and high-reliability, the units will run maintenance free for 66,000 hours of continuous use.

With CCC’s current operating hours of 42 hours a week, 50 weeks per year – the fittings offer a useful lifetime of 15 years.

Throughout life they require no routine maintenance, saving CCC an average of £230 during products’ lifetime. This takes overall savings for this project to £67,764.
