La Manga Club's commitment to energy efficiency saves up to 81% on the lighting consumption in the resort
This summer, La Manga Club has undertaken an ambitious project to replace most of the lighting system around the resort. The savings represents 81%; this has the equivalent effect of planting more than 50,000 trees.
La Manga Club, 14th October 2015. The traditional lighting in the Príncipe Felipe 5* Hotel, the apartments in 4* Las Lomas Village and all the resort's restaurants have been replaced with low-energy LED technology.
To carry out this ambitious project, the resort contracted AOM Development and Consulting SL. This reputable company specializes in large building energy efficiency. They have already completed important energy efficiency projects from several buildings belonging to the Permanent Representation of Spain to the European Union in Brussels.
Over a four week period 8,862 points of light were replaced, it is the largest project of its kind in Murcia and one of the largest in Spain. With this, La Manga Club has reduced its carbon footprint to 307.11 T CO2e annually. This reduction has the equivalent effect of planting 51,184 trees, more than double the amount of trees in Central Park, New York.
Some of the main advantages of using LED lighting (Light Emitting Diode) are the high energy
efficiency and outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 10 years. These bulbs consume 5W in respect to the 50W of the old traditional bulbs. After this investment, the resort has achieved an average saving of 81% on lighting.
Pedro Garcia-Llamas, project manager says: “La Manga Club is recognised as one of the best resorts in Europe, and this is something that could not have been achieved without a high commitment to the quality of the service and facilities. For AOM, it is a privilege to have their confidence in us. We believe that the project carried out fits the criteria their customers expect and at the same time one of the best bets in terms of energy efficiency”.
