Dexeco helps Southern Railways get on track with energy savings
Dexeco has been working alongside various train operating companies (TOCs) for a number of years to provide energy saving lighting for both under canopy platforms and maintenance and storage depots.With the launch of the Impervia LED Column (post top) luminaire, this has now been extended to offer substantial energy savings in open platform areas.
Finding a viable energy saving outdoor lighting solution had, until now, been a regular problem facing lighting designers and specifiers across the UK. With the launch of Dexeco’s modern day solution, the Impervia LED column will unlock realistic energy savings across the nation.
Following numerous trials, and gaining Network Rail approval, the intelligent post top unit has achieved 70 per cent reduction in electrical consumption compared to traditional HID units used previously.
Southern Railways is now onboard. A 30 station order offering a maintenance free solution with improved lighting and a reduction in energy consumption was required by the company and several projects have been completed.
Dexeco is now in talks with several TOCs regarding the LED post top fitting as well as other products that have been developed following direct requests from both Network Rail and main rail contracting companies.
