The Largest Installation of IoT-Compatible Intelligent Lighting in Spain
Through its sustainability strategy “Avanzamos,” Coca-Cola European Partners established a series of environmental objectives it wanted to reach by 2025. One of those objectives is to increase energy efficiency, which drove the company to replace the lighting in its Martorelles (Barcelona) facility.
For the project, the Coca-Cola European Partners selected Digital Lumens intelligent LED fixtures which contain smart sensors and instrument the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as the advanced lighting control system to manage light intensity and the shutdown of the fixtures. With the intelligent lighting system, the goal was to achieve more than 90% in lighting-related energy savings and improve lighting conditions over the course of three years.
The renovation of 23,539 m2 in warehouse areas was completed between 2018 and 2019. Up next, the production area and additional warehouse spaces will get intelligent LED fixtures which will complete the installation of energy-efficient intelligent lighting across 90,000 m2.
The intelligent LED fixtures and lighting control achieved greater than 90% in energy savings and in some instances exceeded 97% which represents 3.8 million kWh per year and 1,265 Tm of CO2 per year. This reduction in CO2 emissions is equal to the carbon absorbed in a year by a small forest of 47 adult stone pines (a pine tree species that absorbs the most CO2).
Before the installation of new fixtures, the project engineers calculated the optimal distribution of the intelligent lighting systems in order to maximize savings and improve the quality of the lighting with a minimal number of fixtures.
