LED Lighting for Marchwood Power Station

Installation of Dialights SafeSite®LED Lighting estimated to reduce power consumption from 5.17k W to 1.18kW.

Marchwood Power Station is located on the site of a former oil-fired power station within Marchwood Industrial Park, adjacent to the River Test and overlooking the Port of Southampton.

Marchwood Power is committed to achieving the high standards of health, safety and care for the natural environment in all areas of its operations.

ISO 14001:2004 certified, the plant has a comprehensive environmental management system, and as part of its commitment to reducing its impact on the environment Marchwood Power, in consultation with R&M Electrical Group, have installed Dialights’ innovative SafeSite® LED Lighting range in their external site storage areas.

Faced with complications intrinsically associated with working within the power station environment, added to the accessibility problems of the particular area requiring illuminating, Marchwood needed a lighting solution that would be environmentally friendly, minimize energy consumption, and that would require very low maintenance.  After extensive consultation with R&M’s Lighting Division team , Dialight’s SafeSite® LED lighting portfolio was the obvious choice.

Utilising a combination of the ranges LED Emergency Bulkheads and LED Area Lights, the ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 fittings have a rugged, long lasting design that consumes at least 50% less energy compared with traditional HID light sources, whilst reducing maintenance and carbon emissions, without compromising on the light output.   The new installation of LED lighting has reduced Marchwoods power consumption from 5.17 kW down to 1.18kW.

“The new Dialight installation has not only reduced our energy consumption but has helped us make significant savings with the maintenance costs associated with standard fittings, particularly in regards to access costs and lamp life. This, coupled with the design and support from Dialight through R&M, couldn’t have been a more perfect  partnership”
