Dayco is a global leader in research, design, manufacturing and distribution of essential engine products and drive systems for cars, trucks, construction and industry and constantly looks to optimise efficiency in its workplace environments. Accessing a New South Wales Government energy saver initiative scheme, Dayco undertook an upgrade of existing Metal Halide Highbays to new Haneco Skypad 150W Light Emitting Diode (LED) Highbays at their automotive plant in Wagga Wagga, NSW. The impact on operations was immediate, reducing hefty maintenance costs and lowering energy consumption for the manufacturing site.
Contractors GPE Electrical won the project and worked with the Middy’s TechEnergy Team from the Wodonga Branch to provide specification for replacement of the 400W Metal Halides with fitment of 85 x new Haneco Skypad 150W LED Highbays throughout the plant’s working area. The Haneco Skypad 150W LED Highbays consume 28.7 MWh, a huge improvement over the old Halide Highbays which consumed 86.6 MWh, resulting in an annual energy saving of 66% for the Wagga Wagga plant.
