Glamox LED on "Environships"
Glamox is delivering LED products to the award winning "Environships" that won the "Next Generation Ship Award" during Nor-Shipping.
Big deliveries for Norwegian vendors
The “Environship concept” includes two natural gas fuelled cargo vessels now being built in China by Nor Lines AS. They will be put into service in Nor Lines services Northern Europe and Norway during first half of 2014. These two environmentally designed ships are planned in close cooperation with Rolls-Royce and use natural gas as fuel. The design on the hull and the powerproduction onboard are made to increase the energy efficiency. Building the ships will result in big deliveries for Norwegian vendors. More than 50% of the contracting value is related to deliveries from Norwegian companies, mainly new environmental technology. This also include use of LED light from Glamox where possible. Owners expect the LED technology to reduce the required power consumption for lightning by 50% and increase expected lifetime by 100% compared to ordinary lighting. This will have a positive impact on fuel consumption for power production onboard, and as such further contribute to reduced emissions.
The Glamox LED floodlights FL60 for safe area and the explosion proof FX60 is among the products that will be delivered to the two cargo vessels. Both floodlights have the most up-to-date LED technology, needs no maintenance and are more efficient than conventional floodlights.
Innovative driver technology
As the control units often are the weakest element in LED lighting solutions, the new floodlights are equipped with special driver technology. This facilitates the optimum system efficiency it promises and makes it possible to operate the floodlights in extreme temperatures ranging from -45°C to +55°C.
LED downlight family
Glamox is also delivering interior lighting to the vessels; among the products are the new LED downlight series, DL60. While maintaining the same light quality, the new product series reduces energy consumption compared with similar lamps by 80 percent. The DL60 has been developed in such a way that high light intensity is possible and at the same time it renders a warm light (low color temperature).
Other products from Glamox that will be delivered to the vessels are the LED ceiling luminaire 1445, the outdoor LED luminaire 1448, LED lanterns and the 1771 for refrigerated areas and freezing rooms.
