    Customer Challenge


    The 12-year-old fluorescent lighting in Jernhusen’s train depot in Västerås Västra was approaching its end of life and needed replacing. The lighting was on 24/7, consuming a lot of energy. Because the facility is operational around the clock, stopping production was not an option – the new lighting needed to be installed without disturbing operations.

    The right lighting


    To meet their environmental objectives, the company needed a waterproof, anti-glare and highly energy efficient lighting solution. Jernhusen replaced the existing lighting in Västerås Västra train depot with Philips Pacific LED luminaires. The luminaires have integrated sensors for presence detection. If no presence is detected, the lighting automatically dims to anywhere between 10%-50% of full illumination before eventually turning off. To achieve further savings, the area is divided into four zones that can be controlled independently.


    The new lighting also had to improve working conditions and make employees feel safer. Employees at the Västerås Västra depot are delighted with the new lighting installation. They find the depot to be brighter and enjoy the improved visibility.

    A safe and pleasant,
    working environment
