New LED lighting technology was installed at the end of summer 2015 in Itämerentorni, located in the Ruoholahti area of western Helsinki. LED technology produces significantly more lighting power, with 70 per cent lower energy consumption. The lighting refit was designed and implemented by LeaseGreen as a turnkey project. The tenants’ net accumulated savings will reach over 100,000 euros over the life cycle of new lighting systems.

The owner of Itämerentorni is the property investment company Exilion Capital. The property is a Ruoholahti landmark, with the 16-storey tower building and the lower curved building adjacent to it. Among the tenants are PricewaterhouseCoopers, Suominen Plc and S-Market, which is operated by retail group HOK-Elanto.

“This is a great reference for us and Exilion takes great care of it,” says Tomi Mäkipelto, CEO of LeaseGreen. “LED technology has matured to such a level that one can recommend it to professional property owners – as long as the project is designed and implemented meticulously. I can’t recommend wasting energy – even to amateurs.”
