Each area scene has different lighting requirements. The shipyard is one of the scenes where the work frequency is high at night. In this article, we introduced related issues related to shipyard lighting.

1.What is Shipyard lighting?
Shipyard lighting is the lighting to ensure that the work can continue normally during the night work. LED lights, metal halides, and high-pressure sodium are the lighting choices for shipyards, but long-term working conditions make LED lighting the best choice because it has more uniform illuminance and higher efficiency lumens. In addition, lighting and maintenance is a long-standing big problem, but this problem will be solved after using LED lights, because it has several times the life of other traditional lamps and is the best substitute.
Obviously, if the right lamp is not selected, it will lead to a bad experience and waste too much electricity and light. It pays to invest in quality and correct shipyard lighting. If you are looking for LED lighting for shipyards, we can provide you with a one-stop lighting solution and let you buy the best lighting products at the best price.
2.Shipyard Lighting requirements
Many casualties caused by shipyards during their work are mostly due to insufficient light, which makes people unconscious, missteps, falls, improper operation, electric shocks, and burns. Therefore, well-lit workplaces are pursued by all places, which can not only prevent accidents, but also improve work efficiency. For the area containing large equipment in the shipyard, it should reach 108 lux or more.
Since the shipyard operates all day long, adequate lighting is required for indoor and outdoor work areas. According to top LED light manufacturers, installing smart industrial lighting solutions can minimize the chance of accidents in shipyards, while ensuring that a safe environment is always provided for workers.
2.3 Life Span
Install shipyard lighting fixtures, the life of the fixtures must be long enough, otherwise you need to replace them all every six months or a year, which will cost more lamps and labor costs.
But don’t worry,
Our Lampshining shipyard LED lights developed and designed by ourselves have a long service life, which can reach more than 50,000 hours, and the light decay is very low, at L70. And we provide a 5-year warranty. This means that you only need to consider replacing it five years after installation.
3.Things to note when buying LED lighting for shipyards
3.1 High luminous efficiency
The light efficiency of the metal halide lamp is usually 80-120lm/w, the high pressure sodium lamp can reach 100-130Lm/W, and the light efficiency of our LED shipyard Light can reach 160-190Lm/W.
This is the key to reducing the cost of electricity bills. You must choose durable and high-efficiency LED lights, which means you will be able to use low-power lamps to get more light.
Shipyards are in a relatively humid environment, so you need to focus on the waterproof performance of the lights. The lamps are required to be waterproof and have at least IP65. This will ensure that the luminaire can work normally in harsh environments.
3.3 Anti-glare function
The anti-glare function is often overlooked. If the strong light generated by the lamp has no anti-glare function, it will cause eye irritation or physical discomfort-this will increase the occurrence of accidents.
3.4 Heat dissipation
Another important factor for shipyard lighting fixtures to consider is heat dissipation. The design of the lamp needs to ensure a good heat dissipation effect, which will directly affect the service life of the lamp.
3.5 Color temperature
Color temperature is also a factor that needs to be considered. It is recommended to use white light of 5000 to 5700K in areas that require fine work. Other areas can choose 3000-6000K according to demand.
3.6 Lightweight Design
The weight of the lamp can affect the difficulty of installing the lamp and the safety factor during use. Lightweight design can save manpower and faster installation. During use, the weight is relatively not too heavy, so it can reduce safety hazards such as falling caused by being too heavy.
3.7 High light uniformity
The uniformity of light also needs to be considered. Usually, a light uniformity of 0.6 to 0.7 is sufficient in shipyard lighting.
4.The cost of installing LED lights in a shipyard
LED lights have been advertised as being very cost-effective. Considering the potential cost of lighting is a very clever idea. The cost is not only the cost of the initial installation, but also the operating cost of lighting every day during the end of the life of the luminaire. If the long-term operating costs are too high, even the initial cost is not useful. We can give an example, for example, we use 50,000W LED lights to illuminate the shipyard. If you want to achieve the same illuminance using metal halides, you will need 100,000W of power to achieve the same effect. This difference is twice the electricity bill, and the life of the LED lamp is several times that of the metal halide. The cost of the difference is very high during the entire use period.
In addition, the cost of the lamp depends on the quantity used, the lux level, etc. Depending on the purpose of the quantity used, the cost of the shipyard will be close to $ 8000 to $ 20000 (for reference only).
The lighting of the shipyard is very important. It ensures the normal work, the safety of the personnel, and the atmosphere at work.
When choosing the best lighting solution for the shipyard, LED lights are clearly the best.
Lampshining provides excellent LED shipyard lights. We have several series of products to choose from to suit various types of shipyards.
