Zumtobel Group Services (ZGS), a leading supplier of lighting products, has been tasked with optimising and maintaining lighting systems across Swiss Helicopter’s facility in Belp, Switzerland.
As per a recently signed contract, ZGS will offer its NOW service to Swiss Helicopter for a fixed monthly rate.
Within a 650sq m hangar, ZGS will deploy its TECTON C industrial luminaire that provided higher levels of illumination at a reduced cost in power (3192 kW and 550 lux instead of 6887 kW and 280 lux).
Commenting on the agreement with ZGS, Markus Epp, head of the base in Belp, shared: “We opted for the NOW concept from Zumtobel Group Services because this not only gives us modern and improved lighting in our hangar but also the long-term support of an expert partner. A partner that will take care of the upgrade in its entirety and guarantee us ideal lighting conditions in the years to come.”
As a result of the deployment of the new lighting system, Swiss Helicopters is on track to benefit from incentives valued at roughly $3000. The potential savings were enough to secure approval for the Optimo Plus 2015 programme, which is part of the ProKilowatt initiative currently offered by the Swiss federal government.
According to Herwig Burtscher, vice president, turnkey and finance services, ZGS, NOW relieves customers from the necessity to buy lighting.
“Instead we offer you flexible service contracts for a fixed monthly rate. This way you benefit from the latest lighting technology including all installation and maintenance tasks," he was quoted as saying on the company website.
