Companies who want to improve their sustainability performance often do not think of lighting as a means of achieving their goals. However, this can make a big difference, especially in the chemical industry. With the TPPL project at Chemelot, the participating parties prove that it is possible to reduce energy consumption by at least 80% through the use of intelligent LED lighting at factories. This not only reduces the CO2 footprint, but also enables us to put an end to the light pollution above the site and realize cost savings.
The TPPL project includes unique innovations for the (chemical) industry in the field of intelligent LED lighting, a wireless local area network and an IoT platform (Internet of Things) for monitoring and servicing. This makes it possible to create profitable application of wirelessly controlled LED lighting on a large scale in the industry. What makes the TPPL (Tubular Professional Performance Lighting) LED fittings especially distinctive is that they provide wireless information about their condition and respond to changing environment conditions.
The initiative came from PSPL and Dietal (led fixtures). They found a enthusiastic and innovative partner with Sitech Services. Together they decided to launch an open innovation program with a number of companies at the Chemelot site: Arlanxeo, AnQore, Borealis, DSM Engineering Plastics, Fibrant and OCI Nitrogen. Co-developers were Luminext (control platform), Chess Wise (local network), Van den Pol (installation technology) and LEDsEnable (financing).
