Uranium Processor Mines Energy Savings


A leading industrial manufacturer is upgrading its lighting to LEDs to improve production quality as well as to save energy and money. Cameco, one of the world’s largest uranium producers, was referred to Mike Walker of Lumeneering Innovations by the staff of Veridian Hydro. After testing several types of lighting and conducting cost comparisons, Cameco selected LI to provide LEDs to upgrade all of its metal halide style outdoor lighting for its campus of buildings in Port Hope.

Based on the success of that first project, Cameco is working with Mike to upgrade its indoor metal halide lighting in the main control room of its high-security property. This is one of several projects that will result in Cameco upgrading all their current lighting systems to LED’s. Cameco is one of the world’s largest uranium producers providing about 16% of the world’s production from mines in Canada, the US and Kazakhstan. It is also a leading provider of nuclear fuel processing services, supplying much of the world’s reactor fleet.
