From the start, increased energy efficiency was one of the key priorities, which is why LED technology was the obvious choice. Taking all lighting requirements into account, Philips recommended the use of the ClearFlood Large luminaire, with the optimized Ledgine optical platform. Thanks to its highly application-specific optical solution, uniform lighting could be delivered even in areas that had unique dimensions and requirements. Now, the whole area is much brighter and more welcoming, providing a greater sense of comfort and safety to both the residents and tourists.
Additionally, the Port Authorities became very interested in increasing efficiency of other processes and operations. Therefore, after seeing what is possible using a remote light management system, the Port of Barcelona also decided to opt for the CityTouch software, which provides insights and forecasts on the use and state of the lighting installation, to optimize operations even further.
But the project did not end here. In order to improve the image of the port and deliver a more interesting experience to visitors, the Port Authorities also decided to explore the benefits of color-changing architectural lighting. For this, Philips recommended Color Kinetics fixtures to be used in combination with a wireless control system, giving the port full flexibility. A pilot installation was made on the main bridge at the port, which now provides an even more fascinating first impression for tourists arriving at the Port of Barcelona.
