Inver House Distillers

Our Special Projects senior personnel have been involved at Inver House Distillers, Airdrie site for many years. Over the period they have carried out numerous complex projects, all of which, have been delivered on time and within budget.

The latest installation completed was the Hazardous area lighting upgrade of the Cask filling Spirit process and tanker filling areas.

Working with our clients key representative and taking the valued input of the plant local operators we designed a lighting system that was both users’ friendly and low on energy costs. The Cask filling and Spirit process areas are controlled by adjustable light sensors with key operated managed override facilities and the tanker  filling station has both local and light sensor control.

External street lighting is switched via a light sensor which is managed by a timer and the perimeter & security lighting are controlled by their own dedicated photo electric cell.
