One of the first Projects supplied with the new OptraLED Area Light was Portmagee Pier in early 2017. Part of the Wild Atlantic Way, Portmagee is on the west coast of Co. Kerry. This LED lighting was a refit from earlier HPS Streetlights and is now well illuminated with quality white light and without glare, light spill or uplight. A feature of the OptraLED is the wide spacings between Poles which has economic savings on new Projects (Less Poles, wiring, Bases, trenching, etc). The reduced column clutter enhances the appearance and allows for a greater amount of useable space afterward. Where existing Poles are used, the advantage is that very high levels of uniformity can be achieved.
The Pier is now used frequently at night time, by both Tourists, Walkers as well as Fishermen and Boat owners. The 5 new OptraLEDs have made the Pier brighter, safer, more welcoming and attractive. The Pier is now firmly part of the Village center, whereas previously it was a dark adjacent cul-de-sac.
The Project was planned and carried out by the Local Authority – Kerry County Council, and Engineering Company – Airtricity.
Form & Function – The OptraLED has a Tripod for mounting the Luminaire and this adds a decorative appearance to a very functional and efficient industrial strength Luminaire. Because of this, the OptraLED is used in many other types of Projects where appearance is important. This includes Retail outlets such as LIDL and Powercity or Corporate Headquarters like Pfizer, Analogue and Microsoft. There is also an option of a standard Mastfitter (no Tripod). Typically mounted on 8m, 10m or 12m Poles, the range of options includes Part-night dimming, Dali, CLO (Constant Light Output), RAL finishes, photocell, motion sensor control, etc.
