Muller has recently completed an extensive expansion project building a chilled produce manufacturing facility in Telford. The project has doubled the size of Muller’s current Telford site with three new state-of-the-art production lines, energy efficient cooling facilities and automated warehouse.
Luceco LED luminaires have been installed in many areas including the cooling tunnel, dispatch, goods in and general plant areas, the installation work carried out by Lorne Stewart Engineering based in Birmingham. In many cases, the luminaires were required to be IP65 rated, robust and capable of DALI dimming with connection to a central battery system.
Ceres Extra HighBay luminaires were selected for the principle production areas. IP65 rated, Ceres Extra benefits from a computer designed die-cast aluminium housing with vortex cooling for maximum LED chip performance and provides over 100,000 hours of operational life and a luminaire efficacy up to of 140 Llm/cW.
Platinum Mini Downlighters lit non industrial spaces such as corridors, circulation areas and staff rooms and features easy fit positive locating swing out tabs for quick installation. Platinum Mini, Ceres Extra and Climate Extra are all ideal for use with sensors and lighting
controls including LiteIP to further improve energy efficiency. LiteIP is an intelligent wireless lighting system requiring no complicated electrical installation and no limit to the number of luminaires that can be controlled and is compatible with all driver types including DSI, DALI and 1-10 V. Other features include presence and daylight detection, energy monitoring and reporting.
Kingfisher Lighting, part of the Luceco plc group, also supplied luminaires for this project. Italo LED lanterns were wall mounted and used to illuminate transportation docks as well as column mounted to light the access route into the plant. The Italo range offers high performance functionality, versatility and a wide variety of optics providing an energy efficient LED lighting solution suitable for many amenity and street applications.
