LED illuminators save energy at historic site in the UK

CBC (Europe) : 17 November, 2009  (Application Story)
Fort Amherst in Chatham has opted for Ganz white light LED illuminators from CBC to provide an energy efficient lighting alternative to halogen
Electricity bills at a historic Napoleonic fort in Chatham, Kent, have been significantly cut thanks to the installation of an energy-efficient lighting system from CBC.

Savings of more than £2000 per quarter have been achieved at Fort Amherst following the replacement of halogen-style lamps with Ganz WL100 and WL300 LED illuminators.

The Fort Amherst site, comprising an extensive network of tunnels, gun placements, and hidden defences, is in uniquely complete condition and is the world's largest surviving fortress from the Napoleonic era. It was originally built to protect the strategically vital dockyard at Chatham, and 150 years later continued in service as a secret command centre during the Battle of Britain.

The new lighting installation at the fort, handled by TJW Electrical, covers entrances, car parks and key external areas and takes advantage of the latest, energy-efficient lighting technology.

"The WL illuminators were the ideal choice for this important heritage site," says Steve Craddock, TJW's project manager. "We've used the Ganz products before so we were confident that they would deliver really bright, high quality light and that they would give save money for the customer."

As well as using less power and costing less to run the Ganz illuminators also last longer and require less maintenance - minimising ongoing costs and disruption.

The WL range is designed for use with colour and day/night CCTV cameras, as well as delivering excellent general-purpose lighting for pedestrian areas, car parks etc. Each unit includes varifocal illumination, allowing the angle of light projection to be altered to fit the specific demands of the installation.

They have maximum reach of up to 200m and a coverage angle of up to 180 degrees. CBC also supplies a range of Infra-Red illuminators, and dual Infra-Red/White-Light illuminators, offering similar cost saving and performance benefits.
