New light at the workplace
Just like ebm-papst Ural, our Spanish subsidiary in Madrid exchanged their incandescent light bulbs for LED lighting.
Having already switched to LED lighting in their warehouse in 2012, our Spanish colleagues decided it was high time to follow suit in their offices.
First, however, they tested whether light intensity was satisfactory and higher than with the existing system. As a result, the old 120-Watt lamps in the ceiling panels were replaced by 64-Watt LEDs. White light was chosen because it has a more natural feel to it and allows our colleagues to see better and more clearly. The annual energy savings are expected to total about 7686 kWh.
However, changes were not only made to the lighting system, but also to the positions of the ceiling panels to ensure optimal illumination levels on the workplace. This factor was measured with the so-called luxmeter, which showed a factor of 1040 lux. The recommended factor for offices is 750 lux.
Additionally, two old AC fans in the air-conditioning system were replaced by Axitop fans to increase performance and save energy.
