Energy Focus Completes LED Lighting Upgrade for USS Chafee, the First Navy Ship

Energy Focus has completed an installation of more than 600 new LED lighting fixtures for USS Chafee (DDG 90).


According to a recent Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) press release, "The new fixtures have a minimum 50,000-hour lifespan compared to the 1,000-hour incandescent globes and 7,500-hour fluorescents. The ship is expected to save more than $50,000 per year using the new lights. Savings are expected to exceed $100,000 per ship per year when the scope is expanded to include the T12 fluorescent fixtures. In early 2012, USS Preble (DDG 88) is expected to receive the same fixtures, as well as LED bulb replacements for the ship's two-foot fluorescent fixtures, which are the most common lighting on DDG 51 class ships."

Roger Buelow, Energy Focus CTO, disclosed that "The 600 LED fixtures Energy Focus provided include fixtures using our IntelliTube(TM) single LED waveguide technology to replace fluorescent berth lights as well as a range of advanced LED globe lights to replace existing incandescent globe light fixtures."

"Energy Focus has also received an order to provide its newly developed IntelliTube(TM) replacement LED tubes to retrofit both the USS Chafee's and USS Preble T12 fluorescent fixtures, the second Navy ship to receive all new LED lighting. The cost savings are expected to be even greater since the fixture doesn't need to be replaced." He added.
