ABOUT MARITIME

Reliability is paramount.

We supply precision engineered solutions and energy efficient lighting to ports and maritime terminals worldwide.

Over the last ten years, we’ve used our knowledge, skills and expertise to deliver highly advanced LED lighting solutions for many complex maritime, port, and terminal projects around the globe. Our advantage lies in our proprietary optic system, which allows terminals to achieve the required Lux levels where they need it without resorting to placing lighting on the tops of container stacks or waterside.

We understand and can accurately foresee the many issues ports face with their high mast lighting requirements. So, we can provide technologically compliant solutions with this in mind. That’s why we’re the preferred supplier to many of the world’s biggest and busiest ports and terminals.

Critical Solutions

Outdoor high mast lighting is critical for continuous and uninterrupted cargo handling operations at port terminals. It helps to promote safety, security, and productivity on port sites, reduce unwanted light spill and other impacts on local properties and communities, conserve energy and reduce any unnecessary use of electrical power and reduce risks to mobile equipment by increasing the spacing between lighting masts.

What We Offer:

  • Easy retrofit solutions for existing infrastructures
  • Plug and play compatibility
  • Solutions tested to withstand harsh marine environments
  • Wireless control
  • Low glare for surrounding areas with zero tilting
  • Retrofit, new build, and turnkey solutions
  • Stainless steel construction for use in saline environments
  • A high degree of voltage surge protection.

Why is LED lighting so important for the maritime sector?

In areas like container terminals, there are two types of LED high mast projects: Retrofit to existing infrastructures to:

  • Increase light levels
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Help receive monetary rebates
  • Reduce installed demand
  • Save energy

New masts and lighting installations for:

  • Long-life technology solutions
  • Controls capability
  • Optimised mast placement
  • Reduced power supply

Safe, Secure and Efficient

Lighting is fundamental to the smooth and safe operation of all port and maritime terminals. Whether the application is for an international container port or a local marina, good quality, reliable lighting is critical. Our solutions:

  • Enable land-based personnel, vehicular traffic and visitors to find their way around shore side road infrastructures, jetties, docks, and terminals – vital at night or during poor weather conditions.
  • Focus on quality, reliability, and power use. They also take into account things like light distribution versus energy consumption equations, light pollution, size of fittings and accessories, solution lifetime, and the need for low maintenance.
  • Are designed to deliver sustainable, energy-saving lighting systems that meet demanding legal, regulatory and operational requirements.
  • From ports and terminals in the US to sites across Europe and Asia, our solutions are comprehensive, precise and fully compliant to every requirement.

Meeting Regulation

Container ports, terminals, and other maritime environments all face challenging regulations, guidelines, and recommendations. With our extensive knowledge and expertise, we can guide you on national guidelines and recommendations for the appropriate illumination conditions. For example:

  • Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) recommended Lighting Levels for Exterior Lighting(USA)
  • Safety in Docks: Approved Code of Practice (UK)
  • Horizontal illuminance at ground level:
    • US Container and Shipping Yards – 5 f.c. average
    • International ports and harbours – 20 Lux average

We can also advise on other important areas, such as:

  • Lighting from more than two directions to mitigate the effect of obstructions and to provide ‘depth of field’ to help with visual assessment of distance to objects.
  • Appropriate levels of vertical illuminance
  • Higher masts for less shadowing from container stacks
  • How to minimise glare for vehicle and equipment operators by using asymmetric beams where possible

Avoiding the danger of confusing mast lighting for navigational beacons.
