The ongoing benefits of LED lighting in terms of cost of ownership and overall performance were
critical factors taken in to consideration when the UK’s largest Steel producing company needed to
upgrade their lighting due to regulation changes.
Petrel were asked to provide a detailed solution
to the clients requirements of improved lighting
efficiency, in terms of energy consumption, lumen
performance, ongoing maintenance costs and
compliance to Atex directives.
Petrel commenced a detailed survey of the site
in conjunction with the client to establish the
best possible solution in terms of product and
installation method to minimise labour costs and
potential disruption to the client’s 24/7 production
The solution was to supply products from our XN
LED range which are rated at Zone 2 Ex Na This
offered the client full protection and compliance
as well as industry leading performance in terms of
light output, energy efficiency and quality.
The project was also time critical and Petrel were
able to meet the tight and specific delivery criteria
to ensure the project was completed during
the clients planned shutdown periods that were
outside normal working hours.
The client now enjoys vastly improved levels of
light with a higher CRI as well as significant energy
The areas concerned are now fully compliant in
terms of the lighting installation.
In addition to this, maintenance costs have been
vastly reduced as a result of using our XN LED
products which have industry leading performance
in terms of product life with our driver units and
LED arrays rated at 50,000 hours life*
