GE Lighting Illuminates Malaysia’s MASkargo Advance Cargo Centre with its Energy-Efficient Solution

MALAYSIA — February 28, 2013 — (NYSE:GE) — GE Lighting has implemented its technologically advanced T5 High Bay system at MASkargo Advance Cargo Centre, a 108-acre cargo handling complex located in Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia. The system, which is ideal for the warehouse industrial vertical, replaced 1,470 sets of halide lamps with Hi-Beam Lighting T5H0 high bay coupled with GE ELBS and GE T5HO 47W Watt-Miser lamps. In addition to improving the illumination within the complex to 200 lux, the reduction of maintenance and energy use will result in annual savings of $300,000.

Mr. Ong Pang Wai, GE Project and Lighting Specialist, says, “As a leading air freight company like MASkargo, operating 24 hours daily, it is vital that the lighting solution provides adequate illumination while being efficient in its energy usage. After discussions with our clients and a thorough study of the work area, the team specified their Hi-Beam T5 High Bay system for this key cargo complex, which has proven over time to be working well for a multitude of warehouse facility areas. The new lights present a well-illuminated environment across the facility while halving the energy used. GE Lighting’s Hi-Beam high bay solutions are a more environmentally-sensitive alternative for businesses today than older fluorescent technologies.”       

The greater visibility and uniform illumination will contribute to MASkargo’s overall working environment.

Mr. Mohd Zulkefly Ujang, Senior Manager MHCS, MASkargo, adds, “Highly energy-efficient products from Hi-Beam and GE Lighting met our expectations for energy savings and brighten up our work areas.”
