Eco-friendly lights for the big chill

Eco-friendly lights for the big chill

A new logistics platform that uses eco-friendly technology for the storage and distribution of food products. Recently inaugurated at Taglio di Po (Rovigo, north-east Italy), in the Delta del Po area, the new lighting system installed at Bierreti, a company specialised in temperature-controlled transportation of food products, uses latest environmentally friendly technology.

The large low-temperature chillers that store products at temperatures below 30° C are electrically powered by an almost entirely photovoltaic system installed on the rooftop of both chillers. The system, which guarantees about 130,000 kwh of clean energy every year, covers the entire surface available and was designed to generate a power curve that remains constant throughout the day.

For its new logistics platform, Bierreti has chosen low-energy lighting, cooling and heating systems. In fact, for the lights, the company used only lamps and spotlights fitting LED technology, both inside and outside the structure.

Luca Tumiati from Tumiati Impianti S.r.l., the company in charge of the lighting system, explains: “The reasons for installing this type of technology are many: not only to reduce consumptions and ensure savings of about 30,000 kwh a year, but also to provide workers with quality and uniform lighting in all environments, especially on the racks of the chillers, where extreme temperatures require the use of special spotlights to ensure perfect sealing and instant start-up. The new platform also includes a system for monitoring the energy flows and be able to control, remotely and locally, the company’s energy consumptions and the generation of photovoltaic energy”.

The lighting system

The new Bierreti plant includes the installation of totally 180 LED fixtures both outside and inside the structure, supplied entirely by Disano illuminazione. In detail, the system includes 24 125 W Astro LED (Disano) projectors for the chillers, 35 48 W Echo LED (Disano) watertight ceiling lamps for the access room, 36 125 W Cripto LED (Disano) projectors in the outdoor loading-unloading bay and another 67 LED Panel (Disano) lamps for the offices and bathrooms.
