With its headquarters and a bottling and distribution facility on the Naas Road in Dublin, Coca-Cola Bottlers Ireland also has a number of regional distribution depots countrywide.

Business Problem

Original Installation consisted of 85 * 400 watt Metal Halide fittings, the connected load was 38.2 kW with no controls gave a lighting level of 80 lux. A number of fittings were in the wrong location, natural daylight was not being utilised and lights were always left on. The workload in the store varied but lights remained on in the unoccupied aisles resulting in high maintenance costs as the useful life of a metal halide lamp is about 6000 hours

Solution

The new installation consists of 50 Patina AS400 fittings, connected load is now 11kW. The improved location of the fittings has resulted in the lux levels in the aisles being increased to 150 lux. The maximum electrical loading of the new fittings is 50% that of the Metal Halide fittings. A further 25% savings was achieved from 'daylight linking' and occupancy detection on the new installation.

Effect on bottom line % Savings

Estimated annual savings is €24,000. Both management and staff working in the warehouse are very enthusiastic about the new installation.
