AWARD winning LED specialist MHA Lighting has saved Motorway Service Area (MSA) operator Roadchef 70% on lighting costs at one of its biggest services.

Roadchef selected MHA Lighting as the supplier of LED lighting during the refurbishment of the northbound petrol forecourt at its Strensham MSA. The forecourt has been rebranded Texaco by Chevron, who own Texaco and has been using MHA Lighting¹s patented LED technology since September 2010. As the only approved supplier of LEDs to Chevron-Texaco, MHA Lighting has installed energy efficient canopy lighting at more than 70 Chevron-Texaco forecourts, as well as a large number of independent forecourts.

MHA Lighting MD Tom Harrison said: ³We were delighted that Roadchef selected us as its supplier for such a prestigious project at one of its biggest service stations. A total of 86 Under Canopy LED fittings (82 watts each) replaced an equivalent number of 250 watt Halides – reducing C02 emissions by a staggering 585 tonnes over the product lifetime.

The metal Halides were one of the biggest overheads but our energy efficient LED solutions will create cost savings of up to 70%. The lights will also run for 60,000 hours maintenance free. This means the Strensham installation will last for 12 years ­ based on average operation of 14 hours per day, seven days per week.

MHA’s patented LED technology is unique. Unlike other LED technologies, the light is not shone directly out. It is shone sideways and reflected out in a uniformly distributed manner. This achieves the photometric performance of traditional lamps whilst offering all of the benefits of LED in terms of energy and financial savings and offers a long and maintenance free life.

We are thrilled to be working with Roadchef on this landmark project. Simon Tul, CEO of Roadchef, commented: “We are delighted with the result of MHA Lighting’s recent installation, which will help us provide clean and consistent illumination in our refurbished forecourt.

The quality of the LED lights also improves safety and securityat the forecourt by making our CCTV much clearer. MHA Lighting completed the project quickly and with minimal disruption to our business, which, because of the volume of customers using Strensham, was essential.
