Ireland-headquartered sustainable energy solutions firm NuLumenTek, which has offices in Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, as well as in Jeddah and Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has completed one of the largest LED lighting retrofit projects in the Middle East – a project for Almarai in Saudi Arabia – in partnership with the KSA division of the Jones Engineering Group.
NuLumenTek designed, manufactured, and supplied energy efficient LED lighting systems to cover approximately 200,000m2 of manufacturing facilities for a central processing plant for dairy products.
The retrofitting project included five distribution depots covering an area of 80,000m2; offices in the headquarters spanning 40,000m2; as well as accommodation facilities for more than 3,000 people.
As part of the project, NuLumenTek installed more than 37,000 lights, and replaced more than 40,000 lights, generating annual energy savings of approximately 20 gigawatt hours (GWh).
As a result, more than 14 million kilograms of carbon were saved, equivalent to removing the carbon footprint left by 3,000 cars.
The project also achieved annual savings of approximately $1.5million, with an internal rate of return (IRR) of 15%.Read the full article here
