Ports and shipping yards utilize a lot of energy, and the cost of all that energy consumption can add up quickly. When shipyard managers are looking for ways to save on energy costs, lighting is the most obvious place where money can be saved. Yet shipyards and ports require constant illumination for safe operation, so how can companies balance the need for light with the need to save money? The answer is to switch to LED lighting. AEON LED has several products with proprietary features that make them ideal for use in marine environments like shipyards and ports. Here’s a closer look at how they can help companies improve operations and save on energy costs at the same time.
High Mast Lighting and LED Are the Perfect Fit
In a shipyard, high mast lighting is the right choice. Strategically placed around the shipyard, these lights are far off the ground, but provide a wide beam of illumination on the ground or water below. Because they take up little space near ground level, yet provide a wide arc of light, high mast lights fit the port environment quite well.
AEON LED Luminaires are perfectly suited to serve as high mast lights. These lights cut energy costs by as much as 65 percent and cut maintenance costs through longer lifespans. They are specifically designed to withstand the marine environment with corrosion-resistant materials and a system that dissipates heat to reduce damage to the electrical components. This combination makes these an all-weather light, perfect for outdoor port use. This means maintenance crews will spend less time and effort on luminaire replacement when you choose AEON LED Luminaires.
Improved Visual Accuracy Improves Operations
While not directly related to energy costs, changing to AEON LED Luminaires also improves visual accuracy. This means that work crews can perform their duties more effectively, limiting costly mistakes or accidents due to poor visualization. These Luminaires also reduce visual fatigue, so workers can work more efficiently.
Retrofit Lighting Makes Switching Easy
Making the change to more energy efficient AEON LED Luminaires does not require costly upgrades to your lighting. You can enjoy these efficient and effective light options easily, because they are retrofit to work within your existing lighting structures. Making the switch is as simple as taking out your existing lighting and replacing it with efficient AEON LED Luminaires.
Lowering energy costs at ports and shipyards is not easy, but you can save significantly with your lighting choices. Lighting must be always on in order to properly light your facility, and that can quickly drive up your energy costs. With the reliable, crisp, and efficiently Luminaires from AEON LED, you can finally get a handle on your energy costs without sacrificing the safety and function of your facility.
