Ladyzhynska TPP Will Be Saving 75% of Electricity for Lighting

DTEK04 October 2018

DTEK Ladyzhynska TPP is planning to save 75% of electric power for the turbine hall lighting by installing 162 LED fixtures. According to the energy-efficient project, DTEK ESCO will also replace the cabling and switchboards. Such measures will allow the plant to save 1 million kWh, or 2.5 million hryvnias, on electric energy costs, and CO2 emission will be reduced by 900 tons.

The energy-efficient project is to be executed under an energy service contract. That means that DTEK ESCO will fund and retrofit the lighting system on the turnkey basis, guarantee achievement of the economy and maintain the new equipment.

“On the one hand, there’s nothing special in installation of LED lights, many enterprises in Ukraine gradually re-equip their production. But they have to spend their own money or take loans for the upgrades, and to pay interest and fees. In our case, however, all expenses are covered by an energy service company (ESCO), with whom we will be settling the refunds bit-by-bit over 5 years exclusively by means of savings attained,” said Oleksandr Bobryk, Director of DTEK Ladyzhynska TPP.

“Replacement of lights with LED devices will allow us not only to save power, but it will also contribute to illuminance levels and industrial safety at the enterprise. LED fixtures last long, the manufacturer’s warranty is 5 years, and they do not require any special disposal like mercury lamps do. Which means that we are going to save on the electric lighting system maintenance as an addition,” explained Dmytro Savoliuk, Energy Manager and Head of the Equipment Adjustment and Testing Department of DTEK Ladyzhynska TPP.

“The project at Ladyzhynska TPP is beautiful and large. The turbine hall has the area of 15,000 m2. That’s like four Kyiv Central Railway Station buildings. We have approached the retrofitting comprehensively and had the lighting system completely redesigned. Every new light fixture replaces 3 old DRL-type mercury arc lamps. Generally, retrofitting of an electric lighting system shows handsome economy – 70 to 90%. This has been proven by our projects implemented at Pavlogradska CCM (650 LED lights, 70% saving) and at Dobropilska CEP (490 LED lights, up to 90% saving). Currently, we are installing 2,200 light fixtures at Ilyich Iron and Steel Works. And we are planning to start three more similar projects at other TPPs,” reported Yevhen Bushma, Director of DTEK ESCO.
