Technology- New Vs Old
Nearly all Lighting Towers in use today are based on
technology from the 1960’s using inefficient 1,000W
Metal Halide bulbs.
The Ecolite uses modern, energy efficient 150W
Ceramic Discharge Metal Halide bulbs.
Combined with our patented prismatic lens technology
the Ecolite is able to produce superior definition, clarity
and colour reproduction.
Designed to withstand winds of up to 100kph (62mph)
Lifting eyes and tie down points
Glare & flicker free
Drastically cut refuelling frequency reducing the likelihood of an
Ecolite -T AMOSS – Automatic Mast Operating Safety System
(operator cannot raise the mast unless the brakes are
Flexibility of 3500 mast rotation and individual lamp positioning
Safety- Overhead Obstructions
One of the biggest risks from operating lighting towers is from overhead obstructions
such as power lines.
In 2002 two men were killed whilst moving a lighting tower in the raised position into
20,000-volt overhead power lines.
Several manufacturers have since developed fail safe systems that automatically lower
the mast, either hydraulically or electrically as soon as the handbrake is released.
Highways Managing Agent Contractor Aone+ has even gone so far as to specify that all
lighting towers used on their network have this feature.
Economic – Reduce Logistics Costs
Fewer fuel deliveries
Lower refuelling labour costs
Reduced traffic management costs &
disruption (within road works)
Fuel saving on bowser/fuel bunker vehicles
Reduced opportunity for fuel contamination
Lightweight & compact that 10 Ecolite-T
units or 20 Ecolite-P units fit on a standard
80% reduction in overall CO2 footprint
Modular design for rapid component
replacement & exchange
High recyclable content
Reduced light pollution (85% of light focused
Reduced noise pollution (single cylinder air
Hydraulic mast system uses biodegradable
Base unit is fully bunded providing 110%
machine fluids containment
Dusk to dawn auto switching and 7 day
What Does This Mean For The UK?
Based on a conservative estimate of 10,000 lighting towers in the UK
market, £45.8 million could be saved on fuel and 151 million KG of
CO2 prevented from entering the atmosphere.
Fuel Cost Per Year
CO2 Output Per Year (KG)
Based on 15 Lighting Towers on a 6 month hire:
Over £47,000 saved on fuel alone
157,000 Kg of CO2 prevented from
entering the atmosphere
At £160 per week you will still save over
£20,500 compared to a 4 x 1,000w MH
tower at £110 per week
Total saving against a £50 Hire Premium
over 3 years (6 months utilisation per
year) totals £76,500
