The company, the leading European provider of broadband satellite communication services for businesses, public administrations and end users, has selected GE Lighting LED technology for the restyling of its operative headquarters in Turin.
Skylogic is the leading European provider of broadband satellite communication services for businesses, public administrations and end users. Skylogic's headquarters are located in Turin with commercial subsidiaries in various European countries, including Germany, the UK, France, Spain, Greece and Poland, as well as in Turkey. Skylogic is part of the Eutelsat Group, Europe's leading satellite operator with capacity on 29 satellites covering over 150 countries.
The company needed to create a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing appearance to reduce energy consumption while improving visual comfort and reduce maintenance costs. GE Lighting's Lumination™ LED lighting system has responded completely to the new requirements and the specific requests of Giacomo Castellano, Facility Manager at Skylogic Italy.
The project involved the replacement of 100 fixtures equipped with traditional 18Watt fluorescent tubes to 600x600 Lumination™ LED Luminaires. The fixtures were installed across all areas of the Skylogic site, from the lobby, corridors, offices, to the meeting room.
Thanks to the characteristics of this new and innovative technology, energy consumption was greatly reduced on the site. The power used by the older generation lighting was in fact 9kW/h (32.400KW/h in a year), equal to an annual energy costs of € 6400.00. Today, thanks to the use of LuminationTM LED, the power was reduced to 5kw (18.000KW/h in one year) amounted to an expense of € 3,500.00 per year, with a cost reduction of 40%.
Results and benefits
“We are very pleased to have chosen the GE Lumination™ LED technology that made it possible to provide an immediate response to our requests to improve the site, making it more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable, while increasing work efficiency and reducing energy consumption considerably”, commented Giacomo Castellano, Facility Manager Skylogic Italy.
Francesco De Vivo, Sales Director - Specification Engineering of GE Lighting stated: "Lumination™ LED is the best LED product developed over the past 50 years. It offers exceptional performance from the point of view of the quality of light, colour rendering, while maintaining a very uniform light distribution. With Lumination™ LED Luminaires we can improve the image and the visual comfort within the offices, reaching the objectives of Skylogic - aesthetically restyling the space and reducing the costs of management and operation”.
