“LED lighting has come a long way since its humble beginnings as flashing red diodes in the late 1960s. Organisations are pulled from pillar to post with significant corporate financial savings and weighty Government Co2 emission reductions to adhere to, there has been a significant shift towards Solid State lighting, as more and more organisations are moving away from legacy technologies such as incandescent, fluorescent and halogen, which are not as energy efficient as their constantly developing, energy efficient LED counterparts.


6 One such example of this shift comes 7 14


from the aviation industry, where juggling energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and customer service is a daily task. Following Manchester Airport Group’s (made up of Manchester, Bournemouth and East Midlands) major commitment in 2009 to reduce its carbon footprint, the Airport Group set out to be the first of its kind to have carbon neutral ground operations by 2015 and sought a Lighting solution that would allow them to achieve


this mammoth task. Over the last 18 months, MHA Lighting


has provided Manchester Airport with LED lighting solutions, which have allowed the Airport to cut its lighting energy consumption by 63% and will achieve overall Co2 reductions of 3170 tonnes over the product lifetime.


The latest installation, at Bournemouth Airport, will slash the lighting energy costs in its external car parks by 72% and will save 65 tonnes of Co2 per annum. By providing LED lighting with a useful lifetime of 18 years, MHA Lighting is able to significantly reduce the airport’s lighting energy consumption from 164,776Kw/h to just 46,137Kw/h, saving 118,638 Kw/h. MHA Lighting created a powerful solution to replace 150 watt SON fittings (170 watt with ballast) with their P30 fitting – which is just 67 watts inclusive of ballast. The 209 lights were fitted on a one-for- one basis, to four metre high poles spaced at 40 metres, providing the airport with an unrivalled standard of light level and uniformity. This will enhance both the customer experience and security at the
