Georgia Ports Authority is is investing in LED lighting to reduce energy costs and improve environmental footprint

An American port authority is investing in LED lighting to reduce energy costs and improve its environmental footprint.

Georgia Ports Authority will install high-mast LED lighting along with the Bright Light Management System (BLMS) software at its Ocean Terminal facility.

“This new computer-controlled LED system is a great solution, providing superior lighting while reducing our costs and shrinking GPA’s environmental footprint,” said Griff Lynch, executive director of the Georgia Ports Authority.

“This investment is part of the Authority’s commitment to responsible, sustainable growth.”

BLS will supply approximately 400 NOVA series LED lights with intelligent sensors and controls to retrofit the terminal’s existing high-pressure sodium fixtures.

Once completed, the new energy-efficient LED lights will reduce energy and maintenance costs by more than 70% while illuminating an area of almost 9,000,000 square feet.

Ocean Terminal will also utilise the Bright Light Management System software, a data analytics and lighting management platform that provides energy consumption data and reporting with detailed asset management information.

“The benefits of integrating LED lighting and controls with our BLMS software will enable the port to optimise lighting around their operations,” said John Chalmers, vice president of marketing for Bright Light Systems.

“Our clean, intuitive web-based interface simplifies lighting control for terminal operators helping to maximise operational productivity and energy savings.”

Ocean Terminal is the Port of Savannah’s dedicated breakbulk and Roll-on/Roll-off facility.
