The installation plan included using the most efficient state of the art control systems across all phases of the installation to give maximum energy savings and return on investment allowing lights to automatically dim up and down when human presence is detected.
The installation team worked in a number of areas outside normal operating hours, including weekend and evening work in some areas. This helped to minimise disruption to Chiltern’s operational processes. Prolite Projects even supplied LED mobile lighting tower solutions to assist operations in key areas to avoid any disruptions to Chiltern’s working day.

In total, over 500 fittings were installed across the site with minimal inconvenience and disruption to the site and workforce throughout their busy scheduled days.
Brett Virgin, Project Manager at Prolite Projects, who planned and oversaw the project was very pleased with the outcome:
“Chiltern Cold Storage Group’s LED lighting upgrade project is very impressive. All of the staff’s comments on light levels have been very positive and the project have given me a lot of personal satisfaction seeing it come to completion and seeing the massive improvements that we have been able to make. Chiltern have been a pleasure to work with along every step of the way.”
The LED upgrade that Chiltern Cold Storage Group have undertaken will deliver over £30,000 worthof energy saving per year on previous lighting costs alone. Savings are further enhanced with COP savings in the cold environments, reduced maintenance costs and much improved light levels throughout the site which is expected to reduce pick and pack errors significantly.
The LED lighting upgrade solution that has been installed has given Chiltern an increase in light levels of up to 400% and a massive energy saving increase through the combination of efficient luminaires and installation of a microwave sensor system of over 65% post installation. A 5-year product warranty supported by Prolite Projects will, in turn, guarantee that savings will be made into the future.
