Europe's First All-LED Industrial Plant Opens in The Netherlands

The LED lighting revolution achieved another victory with the opening of an industrial plant lit exclusively with LEDs. Located in Etten Leur, the Netherlands, the full-service consumer products packaging plant is owned and operated by Kompak.

All interior and exterior lighting fixtures feature Cree XLamp® LEDs and were developed and installed by LedNed, a Dutch LED lighting pioneer.

“In building this new packaging facility, Kompak’s management wanted to demonstrate its commitment to the highest quality production systems, while minimizing the plant’s environmental impact,” said André ten Bloemendal, commercial director, LedNed. “We are particularly proud of the warehouse lighting we developed for this project, Led Lightline, which provides uniform illumination over all horizontal and vertical surfaces, something that is incredibly important given Kompak’s nearly 14 meter-high warehouse ceilings.”

Lightline features motion detection, daylight correction and other custom options to increase light availability in spaces where more light is required. Spanning 3,500 meters, Lightline is fully integrated into the plant’s sprinkler system, doubling as emergency lighting should there be a power failure at the plant. Other LedNed products used include LedTube® tube lights in office areas, as well as FlexiLightPanel® LED panels and LedNed consumer bulbs throughout the facility.

According Steven Nijweide, project manager at Kompak, the use of LED illumination throughout the plant has shown a 20,000 KWh reduction in electricity usage when compared to conventional lighting, translating into nearly 135,000 kilogram annual carbon offset. In addition to the energy savings the lighting has been configured to provide automatic, daylight-compensated, and optimal task illumination throughout the office and production. Kompak’s facilities are designed for a three-shift operation, making it imperative for the lighting fixtures to work with the building’s automation systems. The LED-based luminaires have been easily integrated, creating responsive and functional lighting for employees whenever and wherever they are in the plant.

“Historically, high-bay illumination systems have been difficult to design and implement, given the lumen output required,” said Paul Thieken, marketing director, Cree LED Components. “LedNed’s Lightline fixtures, featuring Cree’s powerful and bright XLamp XR-E and MC-E LEDs, are enabling Kompak facility to take full advantage of the benefits of LED lighting.”

LED lighting will be Trend of future. And also that will be IBTs' long and lasting investment on the green technology.
IBTs have been devoting to high power LED lighting(streetlight and tunnel light) research,and overcome the bottleneck of thermal management to high power led lighting. The power range of led streetlight could be from 60W to 350W.
