Lighting as a service

In cooperation with Vorarlberger Kraftwerke AG, Zumtobel Group Services (ZGS) has fitted a new lighting solution for Aluminium GmbH Nachrodt (AGN) by way of a light contract. AGN will profit from the ZGS offer “lighting as a service” the entire time: agreed over several years, the comprehensive NOW service contract covers all lighting system issues for a fixed monthly rate.

Dornbirn/Austria – New lighting with guaranteed performance over six years – without any investment costs: Aluminium GmbH Nachrodt (AGN) has invested in the new NOW light contract model offered by Vorarlberger Kraftwerke AG and Zumtobel Group Services. Located near Dortmund/Germany, the manufacturer and supplier of high-quality aluminium extrusion billets was faced with the task of equipping its eight production halls with new lighting. Instead of investing in the one-time installation of new luminaires, AGN Nachrodt GmbH handed over responsibility for the entire lighting project to the cooperation partners. This means that ZGS supervised the entire process from surveying through to project design, de-installing the old luminaires and installing the new ones. The NOW contract even includes the annual maintenance work to check the lighting levels and, if necessary, optimise the system in operation. All for a fixed monthly rate over a six-year period.

Lighting as a service

Modern Zumtobel industrial luminaires were used in the eight production halls, including the AGN cast house: just under 300 TECTON continuous-row luminaires, CRAFT LED high-bay luminaires and the robust SCUBA LED moisture-proof luminaires. The NOW service contract guarantees AGN reliable illuminance between 200 and 400 lux as there are different requirements depending on the production site. The new high-bay lighting achieves an annual energy saving of 40 percent compared to the previous year, while at the same time doubling the luminous intensity. Zumtobel Group Services has also renovated the emergency lighting system: with the central eBox supply system and the corresponding emergency and escape-sign luminaires, the halls are ideally equipped for any emergency situation.

Frank Hildebrandt, plant manager at AGN, is very satisfied with the solution: “The modern lighting is a real additional benefit for our staff. The high lighting level provides more comfort at work and therefore much more safety. At the same time, we benefit from great energy savings. For us, NOW is an asset every day. And we know our lighting is in good hands”.
