Dutch port implements intelligent lighting21/08/17Energy
The Port of Moerdijk in the Netherlands has adopted connected intelligent street lighting to improve public safety and meet sustainability goals.
The project has been delivered by intelligent street lighting company, Tvilight, and Dynniq, a provider of integrated mobility and lighting solutions.
Ports around the world are looking for new ways of operation in terms of economic, social and environmental development, whilst also cutting operational costs, much of which is associated with electricity consumption for heating and lighting.
For the Port of Moerdijk, intelligent lighting technology has proven to be a promising way to address these challenges and more.
With new, connected, sensor-based outdoor lighting, the port can reduce the energy consumption for illuminating its industrial site, enhance safety for employees and visitors, and improve overall sustainability.
Bas van den Bosch, project manager on behalf of the Port of Moerdijk, said: “The combination of new LED streetlights, dynamic dimming, and remote-control options offered in the first project phase by Tvilight and Dynniq, is an optimal investment because it helps us save energy while improving public safety and security at the port.”
Following a successful pilot of the Tvilight connected lighting solution, the port will be equipping more than a thousand streetlights in its industrial park with intelligence.
Henk Schakenraad, programme manager infrastructure and maintenance at the Port of Moerdijk, added: “For us, sustainability is a way of thinking and acting because we want to maintain the balance between people, planet and profit.
“We strive to reduce the port’s environmental impact by optimising daily operations and saving energy whenever possible.
“Our goal is to make the port’s industrial site energy neutral by 2030 – intelligent street lighting is an important step in this direction.”
For the first phase of the project, Tvilight provided its smart street lighting control system that includes wireless light controllers, motion sensors and management software.
Dynniq ensured the projects roll-out and commissioning, overseeing everything from luminaire installation to setting up the lighting profiles attuned to the requirements for each location.
