The cranes are operated by RAK Ports, a company managed by the Saqr Port Authority, in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.

 

Saqr is a main gateway for rock, aggregates and cement products for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. RAK operates a fleet of 20 mobile harbour cranes supplied by Liebherr and Konecranes Gottwald, and the retrofit project involves one crane from each manufacturer. “These cranes often operate 24 hours a day within the challenging, local ambient conditions,” said Phoenix. “In order to improve safety of operations and reliability of crane floodlighting, RAK Ports approached Phoenix Lighting to design and supply a durable, LED lighting package. Phoenix provided customized EcoMod 2 420 and EcoMod 2 280 floodlights to replace existing boom and tower lighting on both Liebherr and Gottwald cranes”.

Upgrading to Phoenix LED lights removed RAK Port’s concern over parts availability for the existing flood lights. “RAK also recognised the benefit of energy savings with the LED floodlights and a reduction in maintenance costs, as the EcoMod 2 is specifically designed to withstand the harsh, high temperature and corrosive conditions within a port.


“Most notably, the Phoenix LEDs improved the safety of personnel working on the quay and in the vessel. Phoenix provided fixtures with superior illumination quality and a design that won’t be compromised by the shock and vibration of the cranes. RAK Ports is happy with the safety and operational conditions that resulted from the upgrade and plans to utilize LED for future equipment lighting,” Phoenix concluded.
