EnTrans International, LLC is a leading producer of energy and transportation equipment, with a wide family of established brands under its umbrella and 13 manufacturing locations across the globe. One of these facilities is a 400,000-square-foot plant in Juarez, Mexico, which is responsible for producing aluminum, stainless and carbon steel tank trailers that serve multiple industries.
EnTrans was connected with the leadership team at GE Current, a Daintree company, who then designed a one-for-one replacement solution that would bring the energy-efficient power of 1,609 LED lights to the Juarez facility.
The majority of the new lights for the factory floor were Albeo® ABV3 LED luminaires, while traditional office spaces were outfitted with the Lumination® LBR Series. These new LEDs are poised to decrease energy consumption in the Juarez facility by more than 3.4 million kWh per year, and the projected annual savings from the conversion exceeds $400,000. EnTrans also anticipates reduced maintenance, with the new lighting from Current estimated to save more than $21,000 in annual upkeep.
For the EnTrans team, there are additional advantages when it comes to safety and productivity. There were worries of old sodium vapor lights exploding or a heavier fixture dropping from the ceiling, but the more compact LEDs don’t have the same concerns. Improved light quality is also helping plant workers get their jobs done right the first time around.
