Airport Upgrades Indoor Lighting to Smart LEDs

Venas's UFO High Bay Was Applied to Airport Inside Lighting

End Customer: Kansas City International Airport
Location: Pratt County, Missouri, USA


Project Background:

Kansas City International Airport is a public airport which is located in the northwest of Kansas City Center in Pratt County, Missouri, and it's 15 miles (24 kilometers) away from the downtown. In 2017, the airport handled 11.5 million passengers.



The airport used to adopt lighting fixtures with a high voltage of 1000 watts to illuminate the airport lobby. Not only were these lights expensive to maintain, but also came with very limited lighting coverage. With rising energy and labor costs, an updated LED lighting solution was expected to offer durability, reliability, great performance, and lower costs.


Our Solution:

Venas' 300W UFO high bay light was used to replace the traditional 1000W lamp, and the integrated intelligent lighting technology system (lit system) was added, too. LED luminaire is a lightweight and multi-functional option that is easy to retrofit. At 300 watts, these devices use half the energy of a 1000-watt lamp. L80 lumen depreciation of 10,000 hours provides stable performance and reliability over the lifespan of the lighting fixture. When used together with a wireless lighting control system, it can achieve 30% additional energy saving, thus bringing a fast return on investment.


The new lighting system has greatly reduced the electricity cost, maintenance cost, and energy consumption for the airport. And Venas has received positive feedback from the customer for its considerate service and professional ability.
