Challenges

As part of a programme of energy efficiency, KTS Wire contacted AES after the company was recommended by a supplier. Fitting new lighting systems is all in a day’s work for AES, but this was one of the most extreme cases to date, due to the number of lights and the age of the existing fittings.

Solution

The first task was to remove 105 existing 400W sodium light fittings. These were then replaced by 57 x 144W LED light fittings and 48 x 216W LED fittings. The job was signed off in August 2016. The difference in the lighting level was dramatic, as you can see from the before and after images, which have not been edited in any way. The dull orange glow of the old lighting was replaced by the bright white light of the LED units, which transformed the factory.

Background

AES came highly recommended, and certainly lived up to their reputation. They would be my first choice for all future large-scale electrical work here at KTS.
