A modern LED lighting solution, with no heavy lifting
To remedy this situation, Euroports reached out to Midstream. And while initially asked to provide new lighting solely to cover the area under the boom, Euroports was so impressed with the quality of Midstream’s LED luminaires that they then requested that the entire crane be recovered with new lighting.
Two things in particular helped to set Midstream’s products apart for Euroports. Firstly, they were considerably lighter than many alternatives, something that made a big difference in terms of the crane’s weight limits and for ease and safety of installation. Secondly, the build quality was extremely high – the stainless-steel body and anti-corrosive powder coating being perfect for the environmental demands of a port.
With the mobile harbour crane now fully decked out in Midstream LEDs, Europort’s Antwerp-based operators are able to enjoy a clearer, safer working environment. Energy usage has fallen by two-thirds, and the crane can remain in use for longer periods, ensuring that the port maintains peak capacity.
