Lineage Logistics finishes
initial lighting upgrade
Jul 11, 2012 10:42 AM
Lineage Logistics and Groom Energy Solutions recently announced the completion of the initial LED lighting upgrade project at the Lineage cold storage facility in Richmond VA.
As a part of Lineage’s overall sustainability efforts, the project reduces the energy consumed by the facility’s lighting systems 85% and eliminates more than 100 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The system also reduces heat load, providing lower energy consumption for refrigeration.
The new system replaces the previous HID-based lighting fixtures with the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System, which integrates smart, high bay LED fixtures and LightRules lighting management software. It produces illumination levels that are 25% brighter than the previous system and provides better visibility for Lineage personnel while limiting glare. Integrated controls turn lights on only when there is occupancy and track energy consumption on a real-time basis.
In the building assessment, Groom Energy performed energy and photometric modeling, test demonstrations, and ultimately designed a new site-specific system. The Groom Energy project team installed the system over a three-week period with minimal disruption to Lineage’s operations.
Lineage Logistics is a warehousing and logistics company offering a range of cold chain systems for complex storage and service requirements. Occupying about 130 million cubic feet, Lineage operates the fifth-largest facility network in North America based on data from the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW).
