Argyle Diamond Mine
Replaced 150W HPS Pole Top Lights with 75W LED
Rio Tinto wanted to demonstrate its commitment to energy saving and CO2 emission reduction at its Argyle Diamond Mine.
The pilot program undertaken involved replacing existing 150W HPS pole top lights with Lightsense’s 75W Titan LED Courtyard Light at the Argyle Village.
Through this project, Rio achieved its goal of demonstrating energy and CO2 reductions and subsequently found it also saved in energy costs and improved safety around the camp due to the High Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of the LED replacements.
Since this Pilot Project, Rio Tinto has committed to further energy savings by installing other Lightsense LED products at The Argyle Mine and other sites.
