ACS&T to trial LED lighting

ACS&T is to trial LED lighting in its Grimsby Stage 2 cold store, to reduce its carbon footprint.

The temperature controlled food logistics specialist will control the new lights, which are being supplied by Dextra Lighting, with passive infrared sensors. The sensors dim the lights in areas where nobody is working, hoping to make further power savings, as well as increase lighting within the facility.

During the trial, which is to take place over the upcoming weeks, ACS&T will compare a row of its current standard lights to a row of LED lights.

If successful, the new lighting system will be installed throughout the Grimsby store, along with the company’s other three UK centres.
