Quay-specific lighting control – C2 Smartlight
The lighting systems in the port of Rauma have undergone a systematic replacement with LED fixtures since 2017. Lighting control has been developed alongside the replacement project, utilising the already previously acquired C2 Smartlight system which allows fixture-specific control. The move to led technology brings about 30% energy savings in port lighting.
“The system has been developed in collaboration with Smartlight Oy and Satamatieto Oy to incorporate a function that provides information to the lighting system on whether there is a vessel on a specific quay. When the quay is occupied by a vessel, lighting is adjusted to meet the requirements of the berth in question, while a lower lighting level is used for empty berths. This provides even more savings in energy consumption, in addition to those obtained through led technology. The functional tests of the system are about to start in the near future, and full-scale use will be possible in the autumn as we enter the darker season”, concludes Timo Metsäkallas who is the Technical Director for Port of Rauma.
