The port of Southampton, owned and operated by Associated British Ports (ABP), is one of the UK's major deep water ports handling around 14 million tonnes of cargo per annum and is Europe's leading turnaround cruise port with around 1.7 million cruise passengers passing though each year. Home to many of the UK's prestigious fleets including those of P&O Cruises and Cunard Line.
Kingfisher Lighting was asked to fit and supply a new high mast lighting system at Dock Gate 20 on behalf of tenant the Ford Motor Company.
The requirement was to light (in budget but meeting the required regulatory levels) the main dock area where Ford store their vehicles for loading and unloading. The area is a very busy area with moving vehicles creating potential hazards, further enhanced in poor lighting conditions.
Kingfisher's in-house high mast lighting team undertook an initial site survey followed by creating a lighting design scheme and eleven new masts were required. The client opted for the high-output performance HID Scorpius floodlights.
The Scorpius floodlight was chosen for its high performance output of up to 240,000 lamp lumens making it ideal for a range of high-performance applications such as high mast and sports field lighting.
The Kingfisher team were able to complete the installation of the site in two weeks and the site is now in full compliance with lighting regulations and can ensure the commercial utilisation of the space with continued tenancy. With Kingfisher, ABP also had a "one-stop-shop" experienced high mast team and a single point of contact at all times.
