There are many reasons to change to LED lighting: one reason is to meet the latest marine industry regulations.

Reduce carbon intensity

In 2018, the IMO’s (International Maritime Organization) Greenhouse Gas Strategy towards 2050 was approved – the goal of which is to reduce carbon intensity of shipping by 40% (compared to 2008) within the next decade up to 2030, and by 50% in total up to 2050.

Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI)

The measures being introduced by the IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) to help meet these goals include a combination of technical and operational measures. One of the technical measures is the introduction of the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI), the requirements of which come into effect on 1st January 2023. In order to meet these requirements, more energy efficient technologies such as LED lighting will play a key role in helping ships to reduce their power consumption and carbon footprint. Glamox can help you convert and upgrade your existing ships with more energy efficient, low maintenance LED lighting, which will help you meet these regulations.

Convert to LED

Under the latest European Union ECO Directive, after 2023, depending on the specific application, it will be illegal to sell T8 linear fluorescent lamps within the EU. Many similar directives are also being implemented around the world. This means you need to act now and start planning to convert to LED as soon as possible – otherwise you could face difficulties sourcing spare parts and components for discontinued T8 fluorescent lamps.
