ACSP Provide an Energy Saving LED Lighting Solution for Iconic Liverpool Location

11th April 2014

A.C. Special Projects (ACSP) Ltd. have provided a unique, energy efficient architectural lighting solution - complete with wireless DMX control - for one of ScottishPower Energy Networks’ (SPEN) primary substations, located on the world-famous Mathew Street in Liverpool, UK.

Mathew Street is one of Liverpool’s most vibrant nightlife destinations. Each year thousands of tourists visit the street’s iconic Cavern Club, where the Beatles played on numerous occasions in their early career.

Situated just metres away from the Cavern Club and other entertainment venues on the street, ACSP were tasked with creating an energy friendly, architectural lighting solution to help bring the space to life at night inline with its lively surroundings.

Led by ACSP Project Manager, Lance Bromhead – a selection of low maintenance, energy efficient lighting products were specified for the project, including a number of Pulsar ChromaFlood 200 LED wash fixtures, Pharos control, Griven GoboClip MK3 fixtures, and an assortment of custom-made gobos used to project themed logos and images around the space.

As the installation is outdoors, Lance needed to ensure that all of the lighting equipment would stand up against the elements, so he chose IP65 and IP66 rated products.

Working closely with Pulsar, Lance arranged for all of the ChromaFlood 200 units to be custom-fitted with IP65 rated wireless DMX capabilities, reducing cabling and installation costs and further simplifying the system requirements.

To fulfill SPEN's low maintenance request, Lance chose a Pharos LPC1 Lighting Playback Controller with a built-in astronomical clock, which was pre-programmed to run at certain times of the day.

Based on the new LED lighting system’s reduced number of fixtures and lower power consumption compared to the original discharge lamps system, it is estimated that the LED technology will reduce the sub-station’s lighting carbon footprint by up to 80%.

The installation has been a great success, attracting a lot of praise and attention amongst tourists and passersby.John Heathman, Distribution Programmes Manager,ScottishPower Energy Networks, commented:

"Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN) are very pleased with the energy efficient lighting solution that ACSP supplied for the ScottishPower Substation on Mathew Street, Liverpool. ACSP explained the project options in great detail, as well as demonstrating the fixtures prior to installation. The lighting installation has dramatically enhanced this facility at night, helping it to blend in with the world-famous street's vibrant nightlife."
