Bouygues E&S Appointed To Install LED Lanterns In Suffolk

Construction News Image
Bouygues Energies & Services (Bouygues E&S) has started work to replace 43,400 street lighting lanterns in Suffolk with LED lanterns.

Suffolk County Council (SCC) and Bouygues E&S joined forces to create a partnership with the aim of reducing energy, minimising light pollution, bringing down ongoing maintenance costs for the Authority and providing the best value to residents. SCC expects to reduce its annual electricity costs on these assets by around 76 percent, saving more than 1.7 million pounds a year.

The upgrade of the lighting system will include a further rollout of SCC's central management system which will allow lights to be switched on or off and dim individual or groups of lights. This smart technology will increase the control the Authority has over its power consumption which will further reduce costs. The system will also automatically flag any lights that are not working which reduces the need for night-time inspections.

Bouygues Energies & Services Sales Director, Matt Fitzpatrick said: "After a successful mobilisation period, where local people from within Suffolk make up the majority of our new team, we are excited about starting this large-scale LED street lighting upgrade and being a pivotal partner for the Authority in reducing its carbon emissions."
