Robust and anti-corrosion lighting solution for Belfast Harbour
Belfast Harbour has announced a plans to redevelop the container storage area of Victoria Terminal 3 in order to increase the potential handling capacity.
Steon Lighting collaborated with Light Source to provide suitable gantry lighting for the new Reefer Towers at Victoria Terminal. Due to the location and close proximity to Belfast Lough, a robust solution capable of withstanding the harsh saline environments was required. The harbour was keen to explore low maintenance and energy efficient options, however it was vital that Steon could meet short lead times as the project was already under construction.
Steon’s Challenger 66 was selected as this luminaire is manufactured from polycarbonate and therefore has anti-corrosive properties and is IP66 and IK10 rated. The Challenger 66 has been been successfully tested against salt spray and is certified in accordance with CSN EN 600068-2-52-1997 which verifies the fitting is able to withstand the physical elements of this challenging project.
The new lighting scheme at Belfast Harbour has been successfully completed on time. Steon are confident that with the adoption of the latest lighting technologies this installation is reliable, sustainable and capable of servicing the harbour for the foreseeable future.
