    Energy saving lamps from Megaman (UK) Limited has been used at The Holiday Inn Hotel in Newport, South Wales, in order to significantly reduce energy consumption and minimise maintenance costs.The modern three-storey hotel offers 119 bedrooms and also includes an indoor pool and fitness facility.

    With lighting in the main public areas constantly in use and with running costs at an all time high, Holiday Inn management were aware there could be significant reductions in energy saving and contacted local carbon footprint management specialists Footprintmatters2u for advice.

    Following an initial survey, it was suggested that a simple change over of lamps into the existing fittings would be the easiest and quickest solution with no change in light output.

    Survey calculations showed that savings of 10,000 per annum would be achieved by changing the lamps in the corridor, bar, lounge and reception areas which would equate to 15.74 carbon tonnes.

    Footprintmatters2u then supplied and fitted a selection of Megaman’s lamps which include energy saving R50 and R63 spotlights which
    provide a direct replacement for halogen lamps.

    With minimum heat output compared to halogen lamps, the lamps provide optimum lumen efficacy and can save over 80 per cent of energy. For other areas of the hotel with more decorative fittings, Megaman’s candle lamps were installed.

    All the Megaman lamps used incorporate the company’s unique Ingenium technology which provides 15,000 hours lifetime and shorter pre-heating time.

    Following the installation, hotel manager Paul Ferguson said: “We are delighted with the savings achieved so far and are now in the process of replacing further lamps within our facility.”
