Technician Martijn Verboom: “We asked various suppliers to make a proposal. Freshlight stood out. We now need much less wattage - the energy savings rise to over 75%. The light output is also considerably higher. ” Read more about the experience of International Aviation Support.
“We asked various suppliers to make a proposal for the new lighting in the hangar. Freshlight stood out. We had a good feeling about the proposal and the claims about light output and energy savings were promising. Those promises all turn out to be correct; we are very satisfied with the result. ”
Martijn Verboom is a technician at aircraft maintenance company International Aviation Support at Teuge Airport. He was given the internal assignment to conduct research into better lighting in the hangar. It is about 60 by 20 meters and was previously lit with gas discharge lamps. Martijn: “I made a thorough comparison between the various proposals from suppliers. We were not only concerned with the improved light output, but also with the energy consumption. The lighting is on here all day, from 8 am to at least half past five in the afternoon. ”
Less wattage, higher light output
“Freshlight convinced on both counts. We now need much less wattage - the energy savings rise to over 75%. LED is of course more energy efficient anyway, but Freshlight's lighting takes it a step further. The light output is also considerably higher. ” In total, at 24 light points in the hangar, the gas discharge lamps and luminaires were replaced by Freshlight lamps. Freshlight lighting was also installed in the office. International Aviation Support is a leading aircraft maintenance and service company. It is located at Teuge Airport and was founded in 2014, but had previously been active under other names for the aircraft industry since 1981.
The payback time is short
"Although the initial investment is slightly larger at Freshlight," says Martijn. “But you also see that you have quickly recovered the costs. The payback time is slightly less than three years compared to the gas discharge lamps. If I compare it with the other providers, then after a little over a year and a half I am already more favorable with Freshlight. And then you save on costs. If you do the math, you end up at Freshlight. ”
“We are very satisfied with the result. Colleagues certainly appreciate the better lighting in the hangar, which is of course very important in this technical work. As a company, we are also happy with the significant reduction in power consumption. The cooperation with Freshlight is also pleasant. The lines of communication are short, the expertise is great. As far as we are concerned, Freshlight is an absolute must. ”
