The latest high profile client to install Luceco LuxPanels is Middlesbrough Football club (MFC). Very proud of their environmental management policies, MFC have issued the following press release:



Don’t worry, we are not changing the traditional team kit colours! We’re talking about the new eco-friendly, energy efficient LED panels recently installed at our Rockcliffe training ground complex at Hurworth near Darlington by Arena Technical Services Ltd.

  • Luceco 600mm LuxPanels used for installation
  • Estimated Lifetime savings of over £10,000 compared to previous installation
  • Return on Investment within 3.5 years
  • Saving in excess of 5 tonnes of CO2 per year


This highly efficient and maintenance free 600×600 40 Watt LED light panel was chosen to replace the old 4 x 18 watt modular fittings with energy consumption savings of almost 50% against the old light fixtures and with no maintenance costs for approximately 10 years (based on current operating hours) this was a very simple decision to make. MFC have invested in this new lighting technology not only to enhance and improve the light levels from the previous light source but also to reduce both energy costs and C02 emissions; something which ‘Lenny the Lion’, the club’s mascot will be more than happy about as that’s also kind to the planet!


Working closely with local suppliers and Eco friendly installers MFC’s intention is to continue to seek out and investigate all possible opportunities to reduce its energy costs and in turn reduce its Carbon footprint at both Rockcliffe and the Riverside stadium, who knows this could prove to be one the of the best value for money Summer signings for years.
