VIGOR Industrial

165% light level increases and massive savings in one of the largest LED projects in the history of the Energy Trust of Oregon.

Lighting you have to see to believe

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nighttime operation, Vigor Industrial struggled with a complex lighting system comprised of multigenerational and outdated technology.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.

We 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.

PEC helped us to effectively address all of our goals, and the project has continued to leave a lasting impact. Safety has significantly improved for the 1,800 employees who help drive our year-round, nighttime operation. Our previous lighting maintenance costs were over $80,000 – and now, our expenses don’t even come close.
