Costa projects up to 80% energy savings with new Philips LED lighting

Costa projects up to 80% energy savings with new Philips LED lighting
Lighting leader Royal Philips is supporting Costa Cruises' sustainability efforts as the line upgrades its fleet with the latest energy-efficient LED lighting. More than 300,000 light fittings are being replaced across 10 ships with the MASTER LED and CorePro LEDTube products.

Costa said the lighting project guarantees energy savings of up to 80% and a resulting reduction in fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.

'We are proud to have incorporated Philips’ experience and solutions into such a technologically advanced project,' said Roberto Brambilla, professional commercial director, Philips Lighting IIG.

According to Costa, the LEDs emit 'excellent quality white light, resembling natural sunlight that does not irritate or tire the eyes, while providing instant, maximum intensity light with fittings that are cold to touch.'

The cruise operator said this provides a brighter environment and creates a more welcoming and relaxing atmosphere than did the previous halogen bulbs.
