The Acebrón group has just managed a grant from the ERDF Operational Program Galicia 2014-2020 of the European Union, which manages the Energy Institute of Galicia (INEGA) under the Consellería of Industry. With this grant the renovation of the lighting installations of the Mecace ship was undertaken, applying LED technology in the luminaires of the same, which replace the old metal halide bells.
Specifically, 70 metal halide luminaires of 400W were replaced by new LED luminaires, with powers between 100W and 200W. This change represents a decrease in the installed capacity of 17.7 kW, which in percentage terms means a reduction of 55% in the power used for lighting. With regard to energy consumption, savings reach up to 37,000 kWh / year.
By applying these reforms, not only is an improvement in energy efficiency achieved, but Mecace’s facilities comply with the UNE 12464 standard, improving lighting levels, which also result in the safety of employees of Acebrón Group .
This action is part of the commitment that Acebrón Group has to the environmental sustainability of all its services and products.
