Lighting

- a key area for delivering substantial reductions in energy consumption 

As well as being major consumers of power in their own right, the type and operation of the lighting systems on board a vessel can also have a major impact on the energy consumption of the HVAC systems.

To ensure that the lighting configuration is efficient and economical, we will comprehensively analyse the entire lighting configuration on board any vessel in order to identify all potential energy savings. The following methods can be used in the optimisation of the lighting system: 

  • Use of the latest LED and fluorescent lighting technology
  • Installation of dimmers on the lighting and the implementation of EOS technology (Energy Optimisation System) to manage the voltage.
  • Use of passive infra-red (motion) sensors, LUX (light sensitive) sensors, DALI lighting control systems and other technologies that together minimise the unnecessary and inefficient use of energy for the purpose of lighting
