Case Study: Successful Installation at Bernard Matthews
Mainlight installed replacement lighting in the two Cold Storage facilities at the Bernard Matthews operation in Norfolk.
The UK’s largest turkey supplier processes over seven million birds annually and operates large cold storage facilities at temperatures as low as -26 degrees.
The project focused on improving light quality and reducing operating costs in line with the business’ CO2 reduction programme.
Mainlight were selected to install the lighting scheme, and handled all aspects of this chilly and complex cabling and lighting installation to replace the 250W SON lighting with ultra-efficient LED low bay lighting units. Disruption to production operations was avoided completely and Mainlight responded fast and capably to deal with the technical aspects of the installation.
Mainlight installed a new LED lighting system in our Cold Store installation at Holton in early 2015. This was never going to be an easy win for any contractor to install in such an arduous conditions with limited availability as the unit was still in operation.
The installation team identified the best positioning for the lighting and installed the new system in a seamless manor that now exceeds our original expectations.
Identifying and understanding the requirements for the new system was made easy by the installation team leader who quickly grasped the needs of the operatives. I have not had one single negative comment from the operatives working in the store in fact they cannot speak highly enough of it!
