Jotun were looking to promote green energy products to demonstrate to their clients and improve their sustainability programme, as well as reduce energy costs. The first step started in their warehouse facility in Mussafah Industrial Region, Abu Dhabi. They were very satisfied with that project and the performance of Sky tunnel solar lights, and are progressively installing them in many other of their facilities. They are now fitted in their warehouses in Dubai, and will be installed in Oman and Saudi Arabia in the near future.
The office now runs without the use of electrical lighting for the majority of working hours. The hallways and toilets now only use electrical lighting at night time. Energy consumption has been dramatically reduced.
“ My staff and I delighted with the result of our Sky Tunnels. The office has taken on a whole new ambiance with the effect of the free natural light pouring in. Our power bills are sure to drop and the Sky Tunnels will be paying for themselves in no time”. I would recommend Sky Tunnel to anyone who is currently turning on electric lights during the day”.
Ian Packham – Philexcel general Manager
The supermarket is running approx. 1/3 of the electrical lighting of its other stores in the Philippines. This results in large energy savings. As the Sky Tunnels also have no impact on the heat load of the building in comparison to electrical lighting, the air-conditioning system is also using less energy. The objective of reducing energy consumption in the Supermarket has been achieved and the owner is very happy with the performance of the Sky Tunnels.
The employees are very satisfied with the Day lighting provided by the Sky Tunnel XL2 that were installed. There is no heat load on the building and no glare or visual discomfort, creating a better work environment. The owner of the company is also very pleased as not only productivity is improved, the quality of work has also improved and the company’s energy use has reduced.
