North Sea Operator Utilises High Power Area Floodlight for Fabric Maintenance Work

A North Sea Operator was conducting fabric maintenance and repair work throughout an offshore platform leg down to the seabed using rope access. They required a high volume of light output to ensure the safe entry, working conditions and exit for their team. They used the SA LUMIN Worklight with a rope hanging attachment to provide ambient lighting to illuminate the way down the leg.

Closer to the base of the leg, the Operator suspended the SA LUMIN Area Floodlight horizontally to achieve a powerful spread of light. The 25,000 lumen light output and wide beam angle provided a phenomenal amount of light to the base of the leg.

The main benefits to the Operator using the high-power area light was that it enabled them to achieve better visibility and lighting levels whilst working at depth in the legs of the offshore platform. This greatly improved the working conditions, with the increased lighting levels allowing the work to be completed efficiently and to a high standard. Furthermore, they were also able to move the light easily to different levels according to where the tasks were being completed. This saved having to try and use several normal floodlights which wouldn’t have given the same light output and would also have required more power supplies. As the SA LUMIN Area Floodlight contains high power LEDs and the current draw is low, they only needed to provide one 110V 16A supply. Although the floodlight was far from the power source there was no issue with voltage drop.
