LED Lighting To Save 47kW Per Year At Worlds Largest Auchan Hypermarket
Aviapark shopping and entertainment center is located in the North-West part of Moscow. Besides all of the well known ‘western’ anchor stores, there are 500 shops, an entertainment centre, one of the biggest multi-screen movie theaters in Russia, restaurants and food courts and over 6500 parking slots.
LED luminaires enable significant energy cost reductions, allowing Auchan to benefit from lower electricity bills and repay this project within a year of operation. The newly installed luminaries, LNK LED, are ~ 53% more efficient than traditional technologies. Initial estimates predict electric energy savings of up to 47.2 kW a year compared to a traditional lighting solution.
Active in the Russian market since 2002, “AUCHAN in RUSSIA” includes 84(hyper) stores: 55 typical hypermarkets, 23 “Auchan City” hypermarkets, and 6 “Nasha Raduga” hypermarkets. The company also has 150 supermarkets and 35 shopping centres and employs 37315 people in Russia.
“Auchan Hypermarket, newly opened in the AVIAPARK retail and entertainment center, is a clear example of the design priorities of Auchan Russia. Only the most innovative products and solutions will be used to give our customers a comfortable and pleasant shopping experience. Given the importance of illumination to our retail environments and ultimate commercial success, we again turned to Lighting Technologies, a trusted partner and Industry innovator. Their products, systems, and overall solutions continue to recommend LT to Auchan as a partner of choice.” – Christian Toma, Director for Technical Projects, AUCHAN Russia.
“Our company (Lighting Technologies) has worked for many years with “AUCHAN Russia”, one of the most innovative retail chains in Europe. For this special project, we proposed to use our LNK LED luminaires, a high-efficiency fixture in terms of energy consumption and low environmental impact, to address Auchan’s design priorities” – Viktor Milyuk, Marketing Director, Lighting Technologies LLC.
