(PresseBox) ( Plymouth, England, )
Plessey is working closely with Plymouth City Council to help achieve the Council's ambitious carbon reduction strategy for all their managed buildings and infrastructure. Plessey is replacing the existing fluorescent lighting in Douglass House with solid-state LED luminaires that combine design and lighting excellence with extraordinary energy savings.

Plessey's solid-state LED lighting solution will enable carbon reduction through energy efficiency as well as eliminating replacement costs with fixtures with a 30 year life. The new lighting solutions will create a better working environment for employees and visitors to experience at Douglass House.

Cabinet Member for Finance, Councillor Mark Lowry, said: "Plessey Semiconductors is a local business pioneering a new innovative product which has huge growth potential. We are keen to support their research into their latest lighting product, which is designed to reduce carbon emissions and save money, by providing a test bed for them. If successful, this could bring with it huge investment and job opportunities into the city."

Neil Harper, Plessey's LED business unit director, said, "We are excited to be able to work with Plymouth City Council and to play a key role in this first pilot project. Our solid-state LED lighting solution helps Plymouth City Council create a better working environment as well as contributing aggressively towards achieving their ambitious targets for cost and performance efficiencies. We are looking forward to continuing the development programme with our partners at Plymouth City Council."

Plessey continuously invests in innovation, design and manufacturing in Plymouth and has recently launched the first commercially available GaN-on-silicon LEDs. This technological break-through will enable much faster adoption of LED implementation in both commercial and residential market segments. The joint development programme with Plymouth City Council is a cornerstone of Plessey's pledge to help create better use of the limited resources available on our planet.
