Simarco’s Energy Saving Lighting

We are excited to announce yet another project as a part of our Sustainability Strategy. This project lays a pathway for our energy usage transformation.

Thanks to the cooperation with Connolly Electrical Ltd., we are redesigning and changing entire lighting infrastructure at one of our transport hubs in Witham. The project will include installation of highly energy efficient lighting systems across the warehouses and offices, allowing us to reduce our onsite electricity consumption and related CO2 emissions by an estimated 70%.

Jason Connolly at Connolly Electrical Ltd commented, “As lighting specialists, we are regularly tasked with designing and installing lighting schemes. Energy efficiency is the key motivation both for cost saving and sustainability.

Simarco International Ltd approached us with a completely refreshing vision and objective; to design a scheme that would attain the maximum CO2 reductions possible.

We designed optimal solutions for all areas of the business including office spaces, warehousing and outdoor areas. By utilising a combination of highly efficient light fixtures, and incorporating intelligent presence detection devices, we were able to assume annual reductions of 52 tonnes of CO2e.

We look forward to getting this scheme underway, and to be working with such a forward-thinking business that wants to make a real difference in order to offset their operational impact.” 

As well as reducing our CO2 emissions, the move to energy saving lighting also benefits our business by reducing maintenance costs, energy savings and improving a positive working environment.   Studies show that using energy efficient lighting can increase work productivity, alertness, supports mental wellbeing and decreases fatigue, bringing a positive synergy with our employee wellbeing strategy.
