Crown Land Developments
Project entailed solar floodlighting for advertising on recycled shipping containers and billboards for outer Sydney regions. The locations selected were to market for high vehicle traffic roadways – the solution was to operate via commercial solar flood lighting. The use of ground mount (with vandal proof caging) and swing arm from atop of shipping containers = a cost-effective lighting solution.
Condobolin Central School
Condobolin Central School required car park and oval lighting to provide safety and security for evening and school functions. The School also felt it was an important message to students on the significance of using renewable energy as a lighting solution.
Time and disruption was a concern for the school with installation works. Our product required no trenching or cabling and our commercial systems were installed within half the time frame compared to grid connected systems resulting in a more cost effective alternative.
Solar lighting was installed at 60W LED within oval areas and car park to achieve the AS/NZS 1158 P2 lighting levels.
The brief was to install traffic light systems and over height safety detection for Alkane open cut gold mine. The operation was to run solely on renewable energy. The comparative cost savings of solar verses grid power was more than halved in timing and construction cost.
- Traffic light system which gives priority to loaded dump trucks leaving the open cut pit on the east side through the use of standalone solar and radar sensors.
- A second system brief was an over-height safety detection for oversize/over height loaded dump trucks approaching the underpass which has a maximum height of 8.5m clearance. The safety height barrier is to have a maximum loaded height clearance of 7.5m for dump trucks entering from the east side.
Jindabyne Beautification Project
The brief was to create a lighting effect through tree landscaping and standalone solar flood lighting. It would be a landmark feature for Kosciusko Road at Jindabyne and a major attraction during tourism season due to operating via renewable energy.
With the 3000 Lumen’s LED flood lighting, it enabled us to direct beams to highlight and create the effect required along Kosciusko Road at the entry point for the Jindabyne Township.
Solar up lighting was positioned on both left and right entry points. The actual placement of lights was spread to create a 3D effect. The Pyrus Calleryana trees were 4m high from when we did the site inspection and the lighting position needed to be placed to make allowances for both snow season and the trees growth which would reach 20m in height at maturity. We designed individual lighting systems on each side of the road along the precasted concrete wall entry of Kosciusko Road.
Lachlan Shire Council
Council had made a cost comparison to install grid connected lighting verses solar lighting. The need for public park lighting and depot security lighting was part of their project works. The immediate savings were far greater with renewable energy – it was decided to commence works for solar lighting.
The project had a varied installation which included turbine and/or solar panel lighting systems. Each solar lighting system was either a 40W LED or 60W LED depending upon the areas in need of a lighting solution.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo was looking for a lighting solution that could alleviate confusion for overnight tourist staying within the Zoo grounds. In the past, due to its rural location, the night entry was often missed and late night calls would follow from distressed travellers.
The Project installation was a sensor drive operation with signage at the gate entry. The single phase solar lighting system has an auto program whereby the LED light sits at 60% output and when motion is detected at a 10m radius the luminous flux increases over 6 second time frame to 100% output.
