Woolworths Larapnita RDC

Lighting the way to efficiency

“After occupancy control sensing was incorporated, energy savings increased to 94%”

Vivid Industrial GM, Shane Lewis

The Challenge

The Woolworth’s Larapinta RDC (Regional Distribution Centre) is located in the Brisbane metropolitan area in Queensland Australia. The primary facility is 75,000m2 of ambient and refrigerated warehouse, including a Mezzanine comprising of picking tunnels over 3 levels which cover approximately 1/3 of the site.

Picking tunnels allow increased storage density and improved cubic space utilisation while also providing a challenging low bay lighting requirement. Given the long operating hours and low occupancy in the tunnels, sensors are crucial in achieving maximum energy savings.

In this busy site, poor lighting leads to a decrease in productivity and drop in revenue. It was vital that quality light with no flicker or glare was installed as quickly and efficiently as possible with minimal disruption to operations.
