Robust savings with ROBUS Lighting

Guernsey Post Office Ltd has replaced fluorescent lighting with ROBUS LED lighting, saving energy and reducing costs.

Amalgamated Facilities Management Solutions were contacted by Richard Taylor, Facilities Manager at Guernsey Post Office Ltd for a thorough lighting upgrade, including: offices, sorting halls, car parks, unloading bays, customer retail areas, canteen, toilets a plant room and an underground car park.

Fluorescent office lighting was upgraded with ROBUS LED panels and emergency recessed spotlights, and ROBUS high bay lights were installed in the sorting hall.

VULCAN LED corrosion proof linear fittings were installed in the underground car park, leading to expected savings of £29,920 over a period of 1.6 years. Available in a range of sizes and suitable for emergency, dimmable and microwave sensor conversions, the VULCAN is designed for demanding industrial applications and perfect for car parks, cold stores, warehouses and garages.  

For the entire project, a minimum saving of £518,472 in energy costs at today’s prices has been calculated over the minimum life expectancy of the new LED lighting system after payback.

Richard Taylor, Facilities Manager for Guernsey Post Ltd. said,

“The project was delivered on time and within budget. We were extremely impressed with the way this project was run and absolutely delighted with the final results which has provided a high quality lighting solution. We are already seeing a considerable improvement in our electricity consumption. The saving for the lighting alone averages 63% – in fact, more than we had originally anticipated!”
