LED lighting upgrade brings 70 per cent energy savings to Dublin hospital

Over 400 Ledvance Panel LED 600 luminaires have been installed to meet the high lighting demands throughout Dublin’s Connolly Hospital and, the supplier says, ‘provide a 70% energy saving’. The Connolly Hospital’s Electrical Team turned to Ledvance to replace over 400 existing fluorescent fixtures in the hospital’s A&E Department, main corridors, wards, reception, and ancillary hospital areas.

The team chose the Ledvance Panel LED 600 with its 30 W and 4000 K cool white colour temperature due to the luminaire’s high luminous efficacy, homogeneous light, and quick and easy installation.

Connolly Hospital is a major teaching and ‘health-promoting hub’, supplying services to a diverse population covering the communities of Dublin and the surrounding area. The facility provides 24-hour accident and emergency cover, acute medical, surgical, and psychiatric care, long-stay residential, and day care, ‘plus many other services’. The hospital said: “It is essential that the right lighting is available in every area, delivering the light quality required by medical staff as they care for their patients. As in any building, energy-efficient and low maintenance solutions are a plus, while reliability is crucial, as any downtime needs to be avoided.”

The Ledvance luminaires ‘did not disappoint’. The company explained: “The cost contribution of lighting to the hospital’s electricity bill was significant prior to the LED upgrade. After the panels were integrated with the hospital’s building management system, the Electrical Team noted 70% energy savings via the lighting. Medical staff, patients, and visitors, have also commented favourably on the homogeneous light produced by the panels, which helps create a bright, clean, and safer working environment.”
