Future Energy Solutions Embarks on Europe’s Largest LED Lighting Rollout for Q-Park

Q-Park LED Lighting
Future Energy Solutions (FES), the leading energy performance solutions provider, has announced that it has won a significant new contract to supply, install and maintain light emitting diode (LED) lighting technology for Q-Park – one of Europe’s leading parking provider. Thought to be the largest ever individual project of its kind within Europe, it will roll out across seven countries and be completed by December 2019.

Based upon its experience and recommendations, Q-Park awarded FES a contract in May 2018 to provide a full turnkey solution that incorporates all elements of the implementation process – from survey and design, to installation, commissioning and maintenance.

 

The rollout will be conducted simultaneously across the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France and Denmark, and comprises over 200 sites and around 100,000 installed luminaires.

 

Q-Park goes beyond the minimum European lighting requirements for its parking facilities, as it believes that enhanced lighting offers a more welcoming and safer atmosphere for their customers. In order to ensure that high standards are maintained, FES thoroughly selected leading international LED luminaire manufacturers to supply an efficient and best in class solution, alongside localised installation and maintenance providers in each of the seven countries.

 

Peter Mertens, Corporate Manager Real Estate at Q-Park, explained, ‘Optimising our installed base in those parking facilities where energy efficiency can be improved through LED lighting, brings multiple advantages, such as an improved lighting experience, energy savings as well as carbon footprint and maintenance cost reductions. The currently available LED products offer us these benefits, which is why we decided to transform the light systems in over 200 of our parking facilities across the aforementioned seven countries. Our objective is to achieve a minimum 40 per cent reduction on our addressable energy load on lighting across our parking facilities.’

 


Added value

As well as the cost saving benefits that LED lighting can offer, Q-Park has also recognised the potential to lower its carbon footprint even further, through the installation of wireless lighting controls.

 

Commenting on the benefits of LED lighting, Marcus Brodin, commercial director at FES, stated, ‘Our research has indicated that energy costs will continue to rise and using LED technology can reduce lighting bills by up to 75 per cent. What’s more, LED luminaires are also environmentally friendly, as they are 100 per cent recyclable and free from mercury and other hazardous chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Therefore, this technology complements Q-Park’s clearly defined Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda.’

 


Decision time

FES will act as the master integrator and will configure a bespoke solution for each parking facility. Depending on what is required to reach the stipulated lighting levels and ROI, there will either be a straightforward point for point replacement, a total redesign of the lighting concept or, in some cases, the optimisation of existing infrastructure and its controls. FES will also facilitate a long-term maintenance programme. Site surveys are already underway, with installations scheduled to start in September 2018.

 


About Q-Park

Since the operational start in 1998, Q-Park now has a portfolio comprising over 6,300 parking facilities and 870,000 parking spaces. One of the company’s stated objectives is to enhance the car parking experience of its customers by providing facilities that are clean, safe, well-managed and easy to use.
