Before the installation of FlexSol’s industrial solar light, this dock used a conventional streetlight that would illuminate the dock throughout the night. Due to a failure in the electricity cable, the petrochemical industrial company was obligated to either trench a new cable in the ground, or to search for a new, alternative solution. Installing an off-grid solar light proved to be the best solution for this project, as it was the most sustainable, easiest, reliable and cheapest solution. An immediate return on investment was created and large costs were saved.
Since the ships only occasionally moor a few times a week, there is no need for the light to illuminate every night. Only when a skipper sets foot on land, light is needed for the unloading of cargo. As a result the Soluxio solar light pole only lights up when needed. Because of a motion sensor integrated in the light post, the solar light turns on and off automatically. As a result of this smart LED lighting management, the energy consumption is cut majorly compared to conventional lighting.
