PROJECT CASE STUDY

London Luton Airport

Opened in July 1938, during the 2nd World War LTN was used by the RAF as a fighter plane base. It resumed commercial activity in 1952 and quickly became a key-player in the development of the package holiday business. It’s now the fifth busiest airport in the UK.

The challenge

LTN needed to:

  • Improve its apron light levels to meet the requirements of CAP 168 and EASA regulations.
  • And reduce the energy demand by 40-50%.

To help do this they put the project out to tender in 2017. A tender we won, with the remit to design, supply, install and commission the new floodlight system at the airport.

Our solution:

Following a site visit, our Lighting Design Team decided the existing high-mast infrastructure could be used to help meet the challenges LTN faced – saving both time and money. So, we retrofitted the 40 high-masts with 445W and 705W asymmetric luminaires from our Titan series.
