Press release date: August 30, 2012
Orlando, Florida - To provide a significant energy savings with optimal lighting quality, JetBlue Airways selected MaxLite's HighMax® High Output compact fluorescent (CFL) lamps for a series of retrofit projects in its Orlando-based hangar and training center. MaxLite® is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of the award-winning MaxLED® line of innovative LED luminaires and lamps.
"The JetBlue hangar and training center provided an outstanding opportunity to utilize our HighMax High Output CFLs in a variety of applications," explained Bill Masi, MaxLite Vice President of Sales East. "The new lamps are energy efficient, high quality and will reduce lighting maintenance."
With maintained lumens and crisp color rendering throughout the long 10,000-hour lifetime of the bulbs, MaxLite's HighMax CFLs were ideal for JetBlue's retrofit high-wattage applications. These self-ballasted lamps are constructed with an industry-leading large, solid aluminum heat sink for cool operation and high-heat fluorescent U-bend tubes for optimized strength and longevity. The higher wattage models have an on-board internal cooling fan that helps maintain lumen output, color rendering, and reduced wattage consumption.
Inside the JetBlue Airways Hangar, 75 HighMax 200-watt CFL lamps were used to replace 75 1000-watt metal halide lamps in the high bay fixtures. Offering a substantial energy savings, the new luminaires were installed in the sheet metal shop, the seat shop that repairs airplane seats, and the area used for preparing engines for replacements. In addition, 29 HighMax 200-watt CFL fixtures were also selected to replace 29 1000-watt metal halide fixtures over the apron, in front of the hangar where employees work on the aircraft.
Also offering a significant savings on energy consumption, 50 HighMax 60-watt CFL lamps were used to replace 50 400-watt metal halide lamps in the parking lot that is used by employees who work in the hangar and training center. The HighMax lamps, which are heavy-duty for long durability in outdoor applications, were retrofitted in fixtures attached to 20-foot poles.
Replacing 30 200-watt metal halide lamps, 30 of MaxLite's energy saving, HighMax 40-watt CFL lamps were supplied and installed in wall mounted fixtures over the doorways outside of the crew training center and hangar facility.
City Electric of Orlando specified the MaxLite lamps, which completed a multitude of tests and conversions by JetBlue Airways, according to R.J. Jobman, Facility Supervisor and Safety Liaison, Corporate Real Estate for JetBlue. Larry Meadows, a lighting sales rep for Dynamic Sales Associates, Inc., represented MaxLite during the project.
In addition to their energy efficiency, HighMax CFL lamps will save a substantial amount of maintenance time and costs.
According to JetBlue Airways, the New York-based company has created a new airline category based on value, service and style.
