MANITOWOC, Wis., July 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OESX) (Orion Lighting), a provider of energy-efficient LED lighting and controls, maintenance services, and electric vehicle (EV) charging station solutions announced today that it has commenced on-site installation activities for a previously announced $9.6 million contract for LED lighting retrofits at five Department of Defense (DoD) bases in Europe. The turnkey retrofit program includes site audits, engineering, project management, replacement of over 60,000 fixtures with its highly efficient LED lighting systems and final system commissioning.

“We are thrilled to leverage our extensive experience working with the U.S. Department of Defense to support their energy efficiency, workplace environment, and safety objectives,” stated Mike Jenkins, CEO of Orion. “The start of this turnkey LED installation is a significant milestone we have been working toward for several years. It was made possible through strong relationships with our ESCO partners and marks our first venture in Europe for the DoD. We are delighted to witness the growth of our collaboration with our global ESCO partner and are currently exploring future opportunities across their diverse operation.”
