Case Study: LED Lighting Installed at Pirelli's Production Facilities

19 Apr 2017

Mainlight's lighting engineers have completed a program of replacing all twin fluorescent tube lamps with energy efficient LED linear batten lamps in two production areas at the Pirelli facility in Carlisle. As a result the tyre manufacturer is now looking to achieve significant future savings due to reduced energy usage.

New LED Lighting Battens

Our engineers replaced existing 2 x 58W fluorescent light fittings with brand new 35W QED Lighting LED batten equivalent fittings, along with a modular emergency lighting scheme where required. The work had to be scheduled on days when the site was operational, so careful planning to minimise disruption and ensure health and safety was required.

“Mainlight completed the works to a high standard, to budget and on time. The resultant improvement to light quality and level has been welcomed by the staff working in the areas, while the electricity and maintenance savings contribute well to the productivity initiatives we are working on at the Carlisle site”
