Iscenter Nord, FrederikshavnLarge financial savings and lower energy consumption
Iscenter Nord is a powerhouse for elite sport in Frederikshavn. It is also one of the buildings in the municipality with the highest energy consumption. So the building and its technical installations will be subject to regular energy renovation. As part of this renovation has LITE A/S and the Frederikshavn Council’s Public Property Centre have entered into an agreement to replace the lighting with LED technology.
The original lighting installation was composed of 45 x 500W sodium lamps, while the new LED lamps have an output of 200W per lamp. The lamps have been replaced 1 to 1. Overall, this means that the new LED lights will generate energy savings of 40,500 kWh/year.
The new lighting installation not only saves energy and is better for the environment. It will also mean huge savings in terms of expenses. It will take almost 3 years before the investment is repaid. There will also be significant saving in terms of purchasing bulbs, because LED bulbs have a very long service life and do not need to be replaced. The savings are calculated from the operating hours of 2012 and represent a saving of DKK 60,000/year.
"Iscenter Nord is one of the largest consumers of energy in Frederikshavn. Therefore, it is extremely important that we constantly come up with new solutions to reduce the high energy consumption. One of the initiatives, which have made a significant difference, is the replacement with LITE's LED lighting."
