Case Study – Cobham Helicopter Academy

Working with Poulter Electrical (preferred installation partner in the South West) - VIVILITE proudly supplied VIVI200 high bays for this brilliant project with Cobham Helicopter Academy.

The Academy was able to reduce their lighting bills by £756 a month by switching to LEDs.

The aim of this project was not only to save energy and money, but to further increase the aesthetic and working environment within the hangar.

I thought i had walked into the wrong hangar, I hardly recognised the place!! Poulter Electrical went about their business in a professional and effective manner, we forgot they were there. And the lights, well, I think they speak for themselves, this is something that is not only going to have an instant impact visually, but also something that is going to have an ongoing effect on employees and overall profitability of the business, A1 all round - and one very happy customer.
