Antwerp installing 2,500 LED lamps
(Posted on 04/05/21)
Fluvius and the Port of Antwerp are completing a large-scale lighting project in the port of Antwerp. In four months, no fewer than 2,423 'normal' lamps were systematically replaced by interactive LED lighting. Both companies worked closely together to bring this feat to a successful conclusion.
With a large-scale redevelopment project, the Antwerp port authority Port of Antwerp converted the entire public lighting in the port of Antwerp to LED lamps. Port of Antwerp outsourced the implementation to Flemish network operator Fluvius. He was able to build on his extensive experience in converting urban and municipal light parks to LEDs. Although it ran much faster in the port area than in a densely built-up residential zone or city center.
The redevelopment project in the port of Antwerp consisted of two phases. First, nearly 2,500 light points, spread across the entire port area, were replaced by interactive LED lamps with their own dimming profile. Subsequently, digital meters are placed in between, where necessary, to measure the consumption of the new lamps.
With the redemption of the port of Antwerp, Port of Antwerp is consciously committed to safety. “The new, interactive LED lamps send out a message themselves in the event of a defect,” says Peter Melis, senior technical manager projects at Port of Antwerp. “That makes it possible to respond quickly and solve the problem immediately. In addition, the yellow light from the old sodium lamps reflects few colors, compared to a color rendering of 90% with LED lamps. This improves visibility. And good lighting is crucial if you want to use security cameras. ”
Port of Antwerp is constantly evolving towards a sustainable port and these efficient LEDs are also part of that. By 2023, Port of Antwerp wants to achieve an energy reduction of 5% compared to 2019 for its own buildings and public lighting. These objectives were included in the energy policy statement of Port of Antwerp in the context of its ISO50001 certification.
