    The right lighting 

    Two 25 metre high masts were installed at 100metres apart and Philips Luma 3 luminaires were used to achieve the desired light levels and uniformity. Throughout the process Philips worked collaboratively with the high mast specialist Outdoor Highlight LTD to ensure a smooth installation and all appropriate standards were met. A key benefit of the new lighting scheme is the quality of light generated.

    Superior colour rendering and the luminaire’s white light, perceived as being brighter and more natural when compared to yellow light, has increased visibility thereby creating a safer working environment. Across its entire portfolio, ABP is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and seeking out more sustainable practices.

    The success of this trial means that ABP is now willing to consider LED lighting across its entire estate and Philips is now in discussions with other ABP ports about adopting similar solutions.
