PROJECT CASE STUDY

Port Of Tyne

There has been a port on the Tyne since Roman days, when it was used to supply the Roman garrison for Hadrian’s Wall.

It’s now grown into one of the most innovative and efficient deep-sea ports in the world and handles cargo from across five continents. And the cargo it can handle ranges from cars to containers and bulk goods to renewable energy and offshore.

Many large cruise ship lines, such as Fred Olsen and Saga Cruises, also use the port as boarding point.

THE CHALLENGE

The Port of Tyne was building a new dock extension and needed a high-mast lighting solution for it – fast. In just three months in fact. So, they put out a competitive tender for the design, delivery and installation for the project. We won it.

THE SOLUTION

The tender specified that the lighting levels needed to have a 50 Lux average value. To make sure this was delivered we installed our Titan 420 series of floodlights on new 30m double-drums which raise and lower masts.

To help save energy we designed the system so that the photocell turned just four of the floodlights on at dusk. The six remaining floodlights could be turned on with a push-button on the mast, to provide the higher Lux values when needed.

This turnkey project, which included delivering new masts and installing them on new concrete bases was completed to spec, on time and on budget. Because, that’s what we do.
