Intelligent LED Lighting to Serve as Cornerstone of Sustainability Initiatives, Expected to Save 91% on Lighting Energy
Boston, Mass., September 12, 2012 – Digital Lumens today announced that Mutual Logistics, a French logistics and transportation firm, has selected the Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System for its facilities in Le Mans and Bourg-en-Bresse. The lighting upgrade is expected to reduce the company’s lighting energy use by 91%. (A link to the French language version of the release is here.)
A key part of the Mutual Logistics commitment to sustainable business practices across all of its facilities, the project is expected to generate both energy and maintenance savings, and have a rapid payback. Mutual Logistics has partnered with JC Lampes, representative of the L&O Group in France, on the lighting retrofit.
“With a goal of reducing our energy demand, we considered a variety of options before selecting the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System,” said Vincent Denis, President of Mutual Logistics. “The systems-based approach to LED lighting in our facilities gives us unmatched energy savings and maximum control over our environment, as well as additional visibility into our daily operations.”
“We are honored that Mutual Logistics is deploying our Intelligent Lighting System in their state-of-the-art facilities,” said Tom Pincince, President and CEO of Digital Lumens. “Their commitment to sustainability and environmentally sound business practices is commendable, and is a solid investment for the long-term. As we expand our global footprint, we are very glad that our solutions are delivering real value to customers in a variety of industries and countries worldwide.”
JC Lampes will replace 400W high-intensity discharge (HID) fixtures in the Mutual Logistics facilities with a mix of the Digital Lumens 13,000-lumen and 18,000-lumen fixtures. Mutual Logistics will also have the LightRules lighting management system in both facilities for easy management and fine tuning of lighting settings, and for reporting on the lighting system’s daily operations.
