Introduction

GE plans to set up a manufacturing facility at Chakan, Pune, India with an investment of around Rs 1,000 crore. Spread over an area of 68 acres, the unit will manufacture a range of diversified products for sectors such as energy, aviation, oil and gas and transportation.

Customer Requirement

GE, given its Environmental, Health, Safety (EHS) priorities was looking for an energy-efficient lighting solution that would reduce the environment impact, provide a comfortable ambiance and create a safe working environment especially in the production areas. The ceiling height of this facility was between 13-18 m and the required lux levels was between  250-300 lux. Traditionally, for this design, 875 quantities of 225 kW, 4 X 54 T5 luminaire had been suggested.


Proposed Solution

The Pune facility chose GE's 242 W Albeo high bay lighting which is known for its energy efficiency, ease of installation and customizable configurations. Currently, 460 Albeo fixtures have been installed in the facility.  A dimming option was also installed to suit different work environments and conserve energy especially in situations where lower lighting is required. 


Benefits & Conclusions

1. Significant energy savings in the range of 46 % was seen

2. The ALBEO fixtures because of its long life of 100,000 hrs can significantly diminish maintenance needs especially in difficult-to-reach areas where swapping bulbs requires special equipment and trained personnel

3. Apart from improving the safety, Albeo because of its uniform light distribution enhanced the indoor light quality and also helped create an aesthetically pleasing  environment
