Its working environments are among the most extreme and the high temperatures are a variable with which intelligent LED lighting can give certainly interesting answers. The installation of 520 lighting points gave immediate answers in terms of energy saving with an important figure: 74% compared to the previous situation. But the validity of the installed LED luminaires, in addition to the quality of the lighting and the increased safety for the personnel employed, has given another important return to the company: a 90% reduction in maintenance work.
Lighting at high temperatures is always an exciting challenge, the returns and benefits are so significant that LED technology is now the queen of these challenging environments.
