Welsh steel makers rent energy efficient lighting

Britain's largest producer of steel reinforcement, Celsa Manufacturing UK of Neath, South Wales has teamed up with Swedish lighting experts, Aura Light, to rent an LED lighting scheme at its warehouse.

Celsa UK is also one of the biggest manufacturers of other steel long products. They produce and deliver 1.2million tonnes of finished products every year, mainly to the UK and Irish markets.

Aura Light worked with Celsa UK to install 316 light fittings throughout its site as part of its energy reduction programme. These were the Aura Duro 23W, Aura PerseaLED 135W and Apus Pro LED 45W.

AuraLight26 image 1 high resMike Perry, Group Finance Manager at Celsa UK said: "This was the first time I had heard of renting lighting; so I was a little hesitant at first. However, having sat down with Simon Taylor of Aura Light, he assured us it was a straightforward process."

Felipe Barros, Celsa UK's Project Coordinator added: "I met with Simon Taylor from Aura Light, and he explained the concept of 'Lighting as a Managed Service'. This solution allowed us to complete a multiple site rollout programme quickly and efficiently to maximize the energy savings within the company. Without this option, this would have taken us some years to complete."

The Aura PerseaLED and Aura Duro have been designed to significantly improve lighting and reduce energy costs of industrial applications. The two luminaires are a popular choice for Aura Light's 'Lighting as a Managed Service' scheme, which provides businesses with a flexible funding option to upgrade their lighting schemes.

Aura Light introduced the PerseaLED as a modern, energy efficient replacement for 400W high pressure sodium and metal halide high-bay luminaires, using a MIRO 4 silver reflector for ultimate light efficiency. The luminaire is available from 122W to 217W, depending on the light source chosen, with an efficacy of up to 141 lumens per circuit watt. Suitable for applications in warehouses, cold storage and supermarkets, the Aura PerseaLED offers two beam angle options for both wide and narrow light distribution, which can easily be altered if the arrangement of the environment is changed. The luminaire can also be equipped with an integrated PIR sensor for installation heights of up to 15m, to ensure light is only used when necessary.

AuaLightThe Aura Duro is another of the company's products suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. Sealed inside a sturdy polycarbonate casing with a unique gasket-less labyrinth seal, the Aura Duro luminaire is IP66 rated making it completely "dust tight" and protected against powerful jets of water. Depending on the light source chosen, the Aura Duro comes with a transparent or white casing and uses a narrow beam MIRO-reflector for the highest efficiency of light.

The Aura Duro can be specified in many outputs ranging from 28W to 100W to significantly reduce the energy used within a scheme. The efficacy of the luminaire is as much as 102 lumens per circuit watt offering a high luminous flux. The luminaire can be installed with a DALI dimmable driver to control the light usage to add to the energy savings already generated from the installation.

The Apus Pro LED is a low profile ceiling module and display LED solution. The module is used as lighting for standard commercial ceiling grids and is typically used to replace 600mm x 600mm luminaires.

The efficient Apus Pro LED panel light is the best solution for commercial applications. The panel is available with either Tridonic or Helvar drivers. The lighting is of a very high quality, with a colour rendering of more than 80 and an initial chromaticity tolerance of a maximum 5 SDCM. The panel is energy efficient, has no UV radiation, is lightweight, has over-temperature protection and is shallow, making it suitable for low depth ceilings. It also comes with a five-year warranty.
