Norled, one of Norway’s largest shipping companies, has carried out a major upgrade of the lighting systems on three of its passenger ferries with new state-of-the-art LED lighting solutions from Glamox.
MV ‘Dronningen’, MV ‘Kongen’ and MV ‘Prinsen’ are three identical passenger ferries owned by Norled. Glamox supplied a variety of LED lighting systems to all three vessels.
The three passenger ferries are all gas powered vessels. However, in addition, they can also use marine diesel power or a combination thereof. The three ferries are equipped with low emission engines and by choosing state-of-the-art LED lighting systems from Glamox, Norled has taken another important step in reducing its carbon footprint.
‘The replacement of conventional lighting to LEDs has had several positive outcomes, including reduced maintenance costs, lower power consumption and better light output on board the ferries,’ states Sindre Stølan, area sales manager at Glamox International.
Lighting control The lighting solutions supplied by Glamox includes lighting control systems for passenger areas. This is another method of saving energy, as the control system adjusts the balance of artificial lighting to natural light from large windows on the passenger ferries.
In addition, Glamox supplied a number of different LED lighting products, including the DL60 range of LED downlights. These are designed to provide maximum light quality with better colour rendering than fluorescent and halogen lighting. All DL60 components are custom engineered to work optimally together in order to provide maximum light output and minimum glare.
Compared to halogen lighting solutions, the DL60 can reduce energy consumption by up to 80 per cent with the same light level. In cabin areas, Norled selected the AL60-SQ range of compact, robust LED luminaires from Glamox. Designed by young Norwegian designer Hans Bleken Rud, the AL60-SQ is an elegant, indoor, wall or ceiling mounted square cabin light.
Norled also installed the TX60 range of LED light fittings from Glamox. These enable rapid, easy replacement of existing T8 fluorescent light fittings without requiring any additional design or installation changes.
For outdoor areas on the ferries, Glamox also supplied its TL60 range of LED outdoor lighting fixtures and its MIR LED range of outdoor lighting fixtures. These LED lights save energy and reduce maintenance costs due to their extremely long lifetime.
