DW Windsor are pleased to be working with Wandsworth Borough Council (WBC) to relight their Highway Principal and Residential road network, supplying a total of 15,811 units over a one-year period. The final scheme will save the borough over £360,000 per year in energy costs.
Robbie Heuston Project Manager at Wandsworth Council, explains, “In embarking on this project our aim was very clear. We planned to improve the quality of light on our roads for our residents, while reducing energy costs and carbon emissions with a luminaire that offers a longer lifecycle compared to our existing street lighting.”
A combination of DW Windsor’s Kirium Pro 1 and Kirium Pro Mini answered the requirements and will provide exceptionally efficient (up to 138lm/W), quality light on Wandsworth Borough’s road network. With a lifetime of 100,000 hours L90, it more than exceeded the existing luminaires.
Featuring Diamond+ technology, an evolution of DW Windsor’s award-winning Diamond Optic® reflector, with Kirium Pro the council can create lighting distributions to match the requirements of different main and residential roads throughout the borough, from a single luminaire.
Robbie Heuston, adds, “Our selection criteria were almost equally weighted between price and quality. Our residents’ safety is our number one priority but we needed a cost-effective luminaire for the job. We chose DW Windsor as the main supplier because they represented both. The light quality has improved, and the council will save over £360,000 per year in energy savings, existing lamp replacement costs under the current 6 year life cycle and also extra potential savings of £78,000 through the Carbon Reduction commitment scheme.”
