Challenges

An enormous shipyard with over 1,800 employees and a year-round nighttime operation, Vigor Industrial struggled with a complex lighting system comprised of multigenerational and outdated incumbent technology. Not only did sub-par lighting create an unsafe and counterproductive workplace, but the company had spent over $80,000 in maintenance costs for lighting alone.

Solutions

Pacific Energy Concepts worked with Vigor to create a holistic plan to dramatically cut costs and increase employee safety, including implementing smart control systems to help achieve downtime efficiency. We installed custom-made LED fixtures and applications – from lighting a seven-foot man door to a 200-foot crane – making the project one of the largest commercial/industrial outdoor LED projects in the history of the Energy Trust of Oregon.
