Sports dome cuts energy cost by 50% with NVC low bay fittings
Cardiff International Sports Campus is Cardiff and Vale College’s dedicated hub for sport. It includes a range of indoor and outdoor facilities. Its state of the art sports dome houses a 3G pitch and is used for a variety of team games.
Good quality lighting is vital for spaces where sport is played both for safety and for practicality reasons. The campus previously had 400w Son low bay fittings. They produced a dull orange light which didn’t meet either of these requirements satisfactorily.
The campus manager asked for a solution that would not improve light levels but would reduce running and maintenance costs.
NVC proposed replacing the existing lighting with 40 100W AZTEC IP65 rated, high-output LED circular UFO high-bay industrial luminaires. Installing these new fittings has not only halved the amount of electricity used it has significantly reduced maintenance costs too.
