Connolly Hospital is a public university teaching hospital in Dublin, Ireland. Keeping up with energy conserving trend the hospital has switched to LED lighting. More than 400 LEDVANCE Panel LED 600 have been installed to compensate the increased lighting demands throughout Dublin’s Connolly Hospital and support 70% energy saving.
The Connolly Hospital Electrical Team approached LEDVANCE to replace over 400 existing fluorescent fixtures (4 x 18W) in the A&E department, main corridors, wards, reception and ancillary hospital areas. The team chose the LEDVANCE Panel LED 600 with its 30W and 4000K cool white colour temperature, due to the luminaire’s qualities of high luminous efficacy, homogeneous light and quick and easy installation.
Choosing the LEDVANCE Panels has turned highly beneficial. The cost contribution of lighting on the hospital’s electric utility bill was high prior to the LED upgrade. After the Panels were easily integrated with the hospital’s building management system, the team noticed 70% energy savings through lighting. Moreover, the homogeneous light produced by the panels has been noticed by medical staff, patients and visitors.
The feedback has been positive and the light is perceived to promote well-being and help create a bright, clean and safer working environment. The LEDVANCE Panels come with a 5-year guarantee, therefore, curbing the maintenance costs.
This is providing the hospital with peace of mind regarding the reliability of the products being installed.
