STAMFORD, CT — (Marketwired) — 12/10/15 — Revolution Lighting Technologies (NASDAQ: RVLT), a leader in advanced LED lighting technology solutions, today announced that its distributor Brightness LLC has provided more than 3,500 RVLT LED Thin Panel and Vapor Tight fixtures for installation at Galeno Group’s newest medical facility, Trinidad Ramos Mejia Hospital, located in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This recently completed project included the installation of RVLT’s LED Thin Panel and Vapor Tight fixtures throughout hospital areas including reception, administrative offices, corridors, and parking areas. Galeno Group is one of the most important private health care providers in Argentina, equipped with the latest technology and trained medical staff across twelve hospitals and medical centers to provide top tier health care for its patients.
Galeno Group worked closely with Brightness LLC, an international distributor, based in Miami, FL, through its Argentina branch office to select LED lighting products that provide superior efficiency, reducing hospital lighting energy consumption by more than 50%, and lessening the ongoing maintenance cost requirements due to its significant lamp life exceeding 50,000 hours. In addition to improving operational costs, RVLT’s LED solutions achieve a high aesthetic quality to match the caliber of this new modern, state of the art medical facility, while enhancing significant light output for safety and well-being for its patients and professional medical staff.
“We are excited to work with Galeno Group to provide industry-leading LED lighting solutions that will reduce lighting energy use by more than 50% at their newest medical facility,” said Robert V. LaPenta, CEO and Chairman of Revolution Lighting. “This implementation will reduce operating expenses, exceed environmental initiatives, and enhance safety through superior light quality at Galeno Group’s facility, as well as other medical facilities we serve. As the broad adoption of LED lighting continues throughout the healthcare industry, this is a significant market opportunity for our company, and we expect tremendous growth in the selection of our LED tube based products and thin panel fixtures, which speaks directly to the quality and customer satisfaction of our products.”
Health Care in the United States, including approximately 5,700 hospital facilities, spends over $6.5 billion annually in energy to meet patient needs. With an average of 15% of total energy costs dedicated to lighting, hospitals could save more than $487M annually by incorporating LED technology, providing a significant opportunity for RVLT and its customers.
