Global LED lighting specialist Glamox has designed and supplied a modern, energy-efficient, LED lighting solution for Yara International’s new zero-emission container vessel, Yara Birkeland.

The vessel is a fully battery-powered solution prepared for autonomous operation.
The Glamox lighting solution provided for Yara Birkeland consists of 240 luminaires with low energy consumption and high lumen output. The luminaires also have an extremely long life span of more than 100,000 hours at 45°C. The solution comprises of both indoor and outdoor lighting, including floodlights.
