The Opportunity

With a manufacturing facility of over 300,000 square feet, Cargotec’s onsite electrician was dealing with a daily nuisance: Aging and inefficient lights.

Cargotec needed a solution that would not only eliminate maintenance issues, but also help them to reduce their carbon footprint and the significant cost of lighting a facility of their size.

Finally, the project of replacing more than 800 light fittings would have to avoid disruption to production schedules and staff.

The scale and complexity of the project made Cargotec a natural fit for UrbanVolt’s Light as a Service.


The Solution

UrbanVolt project managed the retrofit of the entire premises with our investment-grade LED lighting.

Cargotec now has significantly improved lighting levels throughout their facility, with staff enjoying brighter and safer workspaces.

UrbanVolt will maintain the light fittings for five years, giving back time and cash savings to operations.

At the end of their five year term, Cargotec will assume full ownership of the LED light fittings, generating cash savings for years to come.
