CU Phosco Lighting achieves 65% Energy Savings and Enhanced Safety and Security with Innovative Solutions for Stansted Short Stay Car Park.
CU Phosco Lighting worked with Stansted Airport to upgrade the floodlighting in its Short Stay Car Park to improve light quality and increase energy efficiency. The FL800D floodlight was identified as the optimum solution and was installed over a two-week period. The results have led to improved safety and security for car park users and reduced energy costs for the airport by 65%.
The Stansted Short Stay Car Park in Essex is ideal for passengers requiring short-term airport parking. Its prime location directly opposite the airport terminal makes it easily accessible by foot, placing check-in desks within walking distance.
This car park offers over 3,000 parking spaces and has been awarded the prestigious Park Mark, a national standard that recognizes car parks with low crime rates and efficient management. With 24-hour CCTV coverage, floodlights and regular security patrols, the car park offers complete peace of mind to its customers.
Notably, floodlights have played a crucial role in ensuring Stansted's safety record. Therefore, when upgrading their technology for greater efficiency, the airport's facilities team sought a high-quality floodlight with precision optics. CU Phosco Lighting provided the perfect solution.
The project's main objectives were to improve the light quality to maintain Stansted's safety record and increase energy efficiency in the car park.
CU Phosco Lighting worked with the facilities team at Stansted Airport to find the right solution for the car park. After conducting a site survey and lighting design, the FL800D floodlight was identified as the optimum solution. The floodlight offers a range of optical distribution options and uses AeroFlow® Cooling System to provide exceptional thermal management. Lumileds LUXEON® MX LEDs and AeroFlow® together deliver high lumen output with very low lumen depreciation over life, which minimizes energy and operating costs by reducing overlighting.
Over two weeks, CU Phosco Lighting installed 186 FL800D’s across 32 high masts and designed and manufactured 32 replacement lantern carriages.
Results and benefits
The installation of the FL800D floodlights has led to improved safety and security for car park users and reduced energy costs for the airport by 65%. The new floodlights provide exceptional light quality and energy efficiency, which has helped maintain the airport's safety record.
