BMI Healthcare is set to deliver big reductions in energy consumption and Co2 emissions in 2013 when it upgrades its lighting.
After extensive negotiations involving Buyer Peter Bell, Group Chief Engineer Steven Buchan, and Group environmental Manager Alan Sweeting, BMI Healthcare's energy saving Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights will be supplied by Lyco Direct Ltd.
LED lighting technology is now the industry benchmark, both technologically and environmentally in the lighting industry. It offers major reductions in energy consumption, with some common fittings consuming as little as 10% of the power of a conventional design for the same light output. They also offer massively increased durability, and in some cases as much as 10-15 times the lifespan of a halogen or traditional compact fluorescent lamp.
Over the months and years to come the Facilities Service will replace existing lights within its existing planned & preventative maintenance (PPM) Budget. Commenting on the deal, Alan said: "Moving from old tungsten halogen and fluorescent lights to LEDs will generate less heat, waste, electricity consumption and Co2 emissions and makes business sense." Charles Barnett, Managing Director of Lyco Direct Ltd is delighted to extend the existing relationship with BMI Healthcare. " These lights are innovative and environmentally responsible products, so I'm pleased that BMI Healthcare has chosen them."
