From its headquarters in County Antrim, cable management company, Unitrunk Ltd provides site survey, design, manufacture and world-wide distribution of cable tray and trunking solutions.
When the company was looking to reduce its spend on energy, Unitrunk contacted the Carbon Trust for help. The Carbon Trust identified a number of areas where Unitrunk could save energy, but, notably, it recommended ‘Save It Easy®’.
Using Save It Easy, 200 energy-efficient lamps were installed at Unitrunk’s Lisburn site. The installation job was very simple; it was all done within working hours at the plant. Energys advised that a contractor was not required to undertake the change – and Unitrunk found that it was literally as simple as changing a lightbulb!
The higher efficiency of the low-energy lamps, plus the more efficient control gear or ‘ballast’ in the Save It Easy units, typically adds up to combined energy savings of between 37% and 65%, according to size of lamp being used.
As a result of actual cost savings on electricity bills, Unitrunk expects its new lighting installation to achieve payback in just two years.
