Serafino Wines Lighting Upgrade | McLaren Vale, South Australia

The Project:

Serafino Wines main priority was to achieve energy savings throughout its production facilities without compromising on quality, service or innovation.

The Solution:

A combination of LED lighting to save power and PV Solar to generate power was selected as the most appropriate offer for the estate. Lumex LED lighting supplied 150 LED SkyBay™ 150W LED HighBays into Serafino Wines across the production and storage facilities. In addition was the installation of 60 Linear LED Weatherproof battens into external areas for illuminating various locations.

Further to this, a 99kW PV Solar System was implemented by the team at Solarmade. The system comprises a number of 15kW SMA Inverters and close to 400 x 250W Mono PV Solar Panels backed by AON Insurance Policy.

Potential Energy & Maintenance Savings:

Within the first two hours of operation, the PV Solar system reported energy generation of over 54kW and continues to gain significant energy generation for the facility. Through a combination of the LED light fittings and solar system installed, Serafino Wines now realise the benefits of up to 80% energy savings across the production facilities.

Additional benefits include a 25 year performance warranty on the PV Solar system as well as 5 years on the inverters.

Serafino Wines is now positioned as one of the most energy efficient wineries in Australia and is well equipped to manage its ongoing energy consumption requirements now and in the future. The delivery of this successful project is a fantastic result for all involved.

It has been an absolute delight to work alongside a quality partner in supporting our energy savings initiatives. The project was delivered with professionalism and excellence. Let the savings begin.
