Environmental benefits with Aura Light’s products

Aura Light won a deal to supply ATM with Long Life fluorescent tubes for the Metro Lines 1, 2 and 3. The contract is worth approximately 800,000 Euros. The negotiation was done in cooperation with Lyte & Lyte energy solutions who is a distributor of Aura Light.

Silvia Perniceni at ATM tells why they chose Aura Long Life. «The lifetime of the Long Life fluorescent lamps bought for Metropolitana Milano is five times longer than standard products on the market and will last about 10 years.»

Metropolitana Milano has an environmental approach and sees economical and environmental benefits with Aura Light products. Silvia continues. «We have decided on Aura Light’s Long Life light sources since they will reduce the number of replacements to one instead of four, thus saving us maintenance costs. Furthermore, reducing the environmental impact by 75% is an important benefit for us.»

The replacements started in February and will be carried out through 2009.
