Fixed and floating turbines

Offshore wind turbines -both fixed and floating, are subject to harsher environments such as sea water and corrosion, as well as a higher-than average wind speed, than land-based turbines. To counter this, Glamox have designed lighting solutions which can withstand saltwater corrosion, shock and vibration and a wide range of temperatures.

The design life of an offshore wind turbine is approximately 25 years. The trend for a longer design life on all wind turbines is due to the maturing of the wind energy industry – asset owners now expect to operate wind farms for longer periods without the technology becoming obsolete or unsupported by suppliers. Extreme loads due to storms, abnormal events and faults during operation can also be critical. Typically, an offshore wind turbine will turn for over 90% of the time. With long system lifetime and comprehensive experience in marine and offshore environments, Glamox luminaires are designed to achieve the intended lifetime of the wind turbines.

    service personnel, as well as providing a clear and safe means of transferring hand tools
    and components to the nacelle.
We have luminaires which can be fitted to all ladders, platforms and handrails.
We offer a wide range of mounting options to suit any installation.
-  Exit lights for installation at doorways.
-  Emergency Lighting in order to maintain safety in the event, of a loss of grid power.
-  All our recommended products are marine certified and quality-approved.
