Albeo's LED lighting is superior to any other high-bay lighting system in all these dimensions including efficiency.

Albeo Technologies Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of energy efficient LED lighting systems, today announced that the Bowden Ice Arena in Alberta has retrofitted entirely with Albeo's C-Series High-Bay white-LED Solid-State Luminaire. Albeo's C-Series high-bay produces over 25,000 lumens at 79 lm/W giving it a wall plug efficiency that surpasses fluorescent and HID high-bay lighting systems. Independently tested to LM-79 standards. With fixtures mounted at 16 feet, illumination levels on the ice were increased 160% from 50 foot-candles (ft-cds) to 80 ft-cds, while energy consumption was lowered 28% from 458 Watts to 325 Watts.

"The fast pace of hockey, the high speed of the puck, and the need for quick action demands high lighting levels," said Andy Weiss, Bowden Administrative Services Manager. "Albeo's LED High Bay more than doubled the light levels while reducing the electricity consumption. The LED lights also eliminated the need for maintaining fixtures over ice and the whiter, cleaner light color is perceived as higher quality."

"High light levels, cold air temperatures, shock and impact potential, and instant on requirements create a demanding environment for illumination systems in ice arenas," said Jason Korbelik, Sales Manager at Albeo Technologies. "Albeo's LED lighting is superior to any other high-bay lighting system in all these dimensions including efficiency."

Job foreman Bud Oldenburger of Olds Electric & Lighting installed the LED high bays. "Albeo's use of a toroid for power conversion, gave me added confidence that their fixture would last longer than power supply based solutions. Installation was straight forward and the results were outstanding."
