Harbour Lighting


This was one of the first Projects supplied with the new OptraLED Area Light 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.   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.



On the East Wexford Coast, this Harbour is exposed to the Atlantic winds from the South West.  The Pier was recently upgraded with new LED Street lights from VeeLite.  These Tech Series streetlights provide a high level of illumination with good uniformity.  This Product is approved by most of the Local Authorities for use on Local Authority Lighting projects.

This Streetlight can also be supplied with CLO (Constant Light Output) and/or Programmable Dimming, usually at no extra cost.  CLO ensures the output of the Luminaire stays constant over the life of the Luminaire (typically up to 100,000 hours). Programmable Dimming enables automatic dimming to be programmed into the Luminaire to provide part-night dimming for example.  In this case, the Light may dim automatically to 50% after midnight for example.

The Tech Streetlight can be provided with a Mastfitter to suit a 60mm or 76mm Pole diameter.  Other options include Photocell or Marine finish.
