LED lighting for offshore - it's a no-brainer for adding safety to the world of offshore assets

  1. 1. It’s a no-brainer for offshore LED Lighting 10 reasons to fit LED lighting offshore
  2. 2. It’s a no-brainer for offshore It’s all about safety – safety is everybody’s business offshore
  3. 3. Reason #1 – LEDs extend maintenance schedules It’s a no-brainer for offshore The roughness of the offshore environment takes its toll on Ex light fittings and extreme temperature impairs their performance, so conventional lights like fluorescents, HPS and metal halide may only last a few months. That means frequent Ex maintenance inspections which can be highly hazardous operations. So how do you get round that?
  4. 4. Reason #1 – LEDs extend maintenance schedules Now you can have hazardous area LED lighting that carries a 5-year warranty as standard with 10-year option on some products. Solid state LED luminaires can stand up to the environment and will typically outlive conventional lighting x3. LED lighting isn’t going to win prizes for good looks, but it enables you to eliminate maintenance and extend Ex schedules on offshore assets. It’s a no-brainer for offshore
  5. 5. Reason #1 – LEDs extend maintenance schedules It’s a no-brainer for offshore With maintained high performance sealing integrity for the lifetime of the fitting (>100,000 hours), there’s no need to open the fitting for Ex inspection. Risk, cost and downtime are all reduced with factory-sealed LED lighting, so it’s clearly a no-brainer for offshore.
  6. 6. Reason #2 – hazardous area certification LED lighting is now available with international certifications. It’s a no-brainer for offshore
  7. 7. Reason #3 – IP66/67 rated and vibration resistant It’s a no-brainer for offshore Solid state LED luminaires feature strong ingress protection and ability to withstand constant shock and vibration – that means you can confidently use LED lighting to improve local task lighting and reduce H&S risks in the most challenging offshore conditions. Watch this shock test video clip to see just how much punishment they can take – 75G stress and the lights don’t even flicker.
  8. 8. Reason # 4 – Good visibility It’s a no-brainer for offshore A CRI of 70 and above creates a safer working environment than HPS with no shadow pockets and improves visual acuity, especially at night. This enables accurate perception of colours and efficient safety inspection as well as enhanced CCTV images for security.
  9. 9. Reason # 5 – No re-strike delays It’s a no-brainer for offshore With instant-on ability LED fittings eliminate re-strike delays to improve facility and worker safety during power outages. Emergency versions also provide 3 hours battery-powered illumination.
  10. 10. Reason # 6 – Low heat It’s a no-brainer for offshore The lack of heat given off by LED lighting reduces the risk of injury from contact with light fittings. Their low T-rating means they’re safer to use where there is risk of explosion. Fluorescent LED Ratings given at 40°C ambient temperature
  11. 11. Reason # 7 – Low power It’s a no-brainer for offshore As LED lighting typically uses less power than conventional lighting it lets offshore assets make better utilisation of limited power budgets which can be diverted to more profitable activities. You also save on lower rated cables, fuses and switch gear. LED high bay 150 – 270W LED area light 38 - 58W LED bulkhead 11 - 34W
  12. 12. Reason # 8 – Directional light control It’s a no-brainer for offshore Specially designed optics allow you to focus the light where it’s needed, for example on walkways and gantries, so you can reduce your light fitting requirement. You can also reduce light pollution to meet environmental needs without additional shielding.
  13. 13. Reason # 9 – Light weight/low profile It’s a no-brainer for offshore Light weight and compact LED luminaires offer less windage and can fit more easily into hard-to-access areas. They can also be installed more easily, often by only one person, and take up less space during shipping and storage. 25+ kgs 13.1 - 20 kgs
  14. 14. Reason # 10 – Performance at low temperatures It’s a no-brainer for offshore Lamp type Low starting temperature LEDs actually perform better and achieve higher lumen output in cold temperatures than other light sources, especially fluorescents. Fluorescent -29°C to +10C depending on lamp type and wattage High pressure sodium -40°C Incandescent any Induction -40°C That means fewer fittings can be used to achieve the target lighting level. LED -55°C Mercury vapour -30°C Metal halide -30°C Metal halide pulse start -40°C Light source Operating temperature (°C) Fluorescent -29°C to +60°C LED -55°C to +65°C
