Lighting remedies expert Glamox has actually won an agreement from the Norwegian aquatic seismic study company PGS to give aquatic LED lights for 8 of its seismic information procurement vessels.
This initial stage of the retrofit job will certainly entail changing fluorescent tube lights with around 2,500 marine-certified LED luminaires fitted on the outside as well as inside of the 8 vessels. PGS’s button to energy-efficient LED lights is being driven by its wish to abide by discharge decrease targets, brand-new guidelines, as well as its very own sustainability targets, Glamox stated.
The LED luminaires will certainly be matched 8 vessels that run around the world: Ramform Vanguard, Atlas, Titan, Hyperion, Tethys, Victory, Sovereign, as well as PGSApollo
The indoor lights will certainly cover locations such as the bridge, staff quarters, passages, gangways, stairwells, ladders, as well as common locations. Exterior lights additionally consists of flood lamps as well as emergency situation lights. The expert luminaires are marine-certified as well as efficient in standing up to the toughest of problems, Glamox stated.
“The retrofit of these vessels with energy-efficient LED luminaires should enable us to save energy used for lighting by as much as 60 percent,” stated Olaf Brunstad, VP Fleet Management, PGS. “It is the first phase of a major retrofit project which will be ongoing until 2025. Eventually, we aim to retrofit each vessel with around 2,500 new luminaires. This initiative contributes to our goal to reduce our emissions by 75 percent and achieve a Net Zero carbon footprint by 2050.
“Our highly energy efficient lighting is helping customers to reduce the carbon footprint of their vessels. It is the low-hanging fruit when it comes to saving energy and directly supports the sustainability efforts of vessel owners,” stated Astrid Simonsen Joos, Group CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER,Glamox “The recent emission reduction targets from the International Maritime Organization and the phase-out of fluorescent lighting due to EU directives, add extra impetus to major retrofit projects across the maritime industry.”
The International Maritime Organization has actually established an objective for Net Zero exhausts from delivery by 2050 as well as a decrease of GHG exhausts of 70 percent – pursuing 80 percent – by 2040, contrasted to 2008 degrees.
Also, from 1 January 2023, it ended up being compulsory for all ships to compute their obtained Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) to gauge their power performance as well as to start the collection of information for the coverage of their yearly functional carbon strength sign (CII) as well as CII ranking.
Unrelated to the above campaigns, the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances regulation is phasing one of the most typical sorts of fluorescent tube lights– offering yet an additional factor to switch over to LED lights.
The LED retrofits will certainly be carried out throughout regular procedures as well as are anticipated to be finished in 2025.
