DKW Engineering Ltd Case Study

DKW Engineering Ltd Case Study

DKW Engineering Ltd (Formed in 1969) specialise in the manufacture of precision engineered components and assemblies to the Aerospace, Defence, Environmental, Nuclear, Medical and Petro Chemical Industries.

In a recent project with DKW Engineering, Kyman Ledtex built an LED Lighting project that reduced annual CO2 emissions by a staggering 15.3T with a payback of 2.72years.

DKW Engineering were looking to drive down lighting running costs and energy emissions, whilst improving the lighting throughout their production area. Kyman Ledtex helped design and build the financial business case to meet the requirements set out by the client with the use of their products and technology.

Kyman Ledtex offered a free site audit of the existing lighting versus LED lamps. From the audit information Kyman Ledtex were able to calculate the organisation’s energy spend on electricity, cost benefit and illustrate an example payback.

KYMAN® 100W low profile high bay made the perfect replacement for the conventional 250W low bay fittings that were found in the production area. The luminaire comes with high diffuser transmittance efficiency for maximum light output and reduced glare, producing a shadowless light with a wide 120 degrees beam angle. Savings were looked at where possible by changing the lights to efficient LED lamps, without compromising on lighting levels.

Kyman Ledtex were pleased to deliver a lighting solution for DKW Engineering ‘s whole site, providing full project
management and installation with minimal disturbance to their daily working environment.

“DKW like many other companies are continually looking at ways to reduce its Carbon Foot print and power consumption costs , with this in mind we had three companies quote us for a new light lighting throughout Factory and Offices.

I am pleased to say we choice Kyman Ledtex after considering all aspects of the quotations received , the reason being although not the most price competitive quotation we felt they were the most professional.

Kyman Ledtex representative gave us a most professional quotation stating all aspects we were considering i.e. Lighting Cover, Lux Ratings, number and types of units required, installation time and cost savings against our present usage. Plus the added bonus of LCW Grant.

We can state that after 4 months from installation which went extremely well with no disruption to our production we are more than pleased with the lighting level throughout.

Even more satisfying is that our power consumption saved by having LED lighting has shown a considerable saving which formulated into payback will cover the full cost of installation with 23 months.

We would highly recommend Kyman Ledtex for your lighting requirements.”
