DP World Container Terminal, Brisbane

The lighting at this new terminal uses 22 high masts varying in height from 25m to 30m which are fitted with 125 x 1kW HPS floodlights. Each floodlight is controlled by an active reactor. The control system allows the floodlights on each mast to be either ON, OFF or DIM. Generally when there is no activity at the terminal at night the lights are on DIM; when sections of the terminal do have activity the lights in that section are turned to ON. This ability to DIM sections results in substantial energy saving and lamp life extension. Energy savings in the order of 30% plus are expected at the site.

The Terminal commenced operation in early 2014
