M&H Llantrisant, Wales lighting energy saving project with 50% energy and 27 tonnes CO2 saved

M&H, part of Berry Global Inc a huge company specialise in production and decoration of high-quality plastic bottles, jars, flexible tubes, and closures. Berry M&H has one of the production facilities in Llantrisant, Wales. Initially Vita Energia upgraded warehouse 250W SON lights into T5 nearly 10 years ago. In 2019 VESL was selected to upgrade T8 units in production halls. Now Vita Energia has been asked again to upgrade T5 units in warehouse with energy efficient LED. As a long time supplier of best lighting upgrade solutions for Llantrisant site, VESL has been chosen again for our experience and reliability. We are also very well known to Berry having now upgraded many of their large and smaller production facilities around the UK and our installation service is very well tuned to work in a continuous 24 hr 7 day per week production environment. In the warehouse area we have installed HIPW units over pallets for wide coverage of light, and IP65 units over lower ceiling level forklift truck routes. We have re-designed the lighting in the warehouse reducing number of units by nearly half but improving light levels significantly. We used Philips Lighting components, which are of the highest industry quality, reliability, efficiency. They were set up to run well under the nominal operating temperatures for extended life of LED. We have installed a circuit daylight sensor saving extra 20% of energy annually, when switching the lights off during most of the bright days. The warehouse has good quality skylights installed letting plenty of daylight in. The process of upgrade in this 24 /7 warehouse facility went very smoothly with close co-ordination between our very experienced staff lighting upgrade installers and the site maintenance and warehouse teams. The project took 2 weeks to complete.
