Dialight secures 0.5m-dollar contract to illuminate Gulf Coast heliports

LED lighting technology provider Dialight has secured an order worth 0.5m dollars to illuminate offshore heliports in the Gulf Coast from an oil and gas supplier.

LED lighting technology provider Dialight has secured an order worth 0.5m dollars to illuminate offshore heliports in the Gulf Coast from an oil and gas supplier.

The order is for the installation of LED fixtures on 15 offshore heliports in the Gulf of Mexico.

The lighting systems will be provided with solar panels through Dialight's strategic partner, Tetra West Technology, a Houston-based company specialising in offshore oil and gas applications.

The order consists of more than 1,300 solar powered LED lighting fixtures, allowing the offshore heliports to operate their required lighting completely off-grid.

Roy Burton, Group Chief Executive Officer of Dialight, said: "Working in partnership with Tetra West Technology to provide this combined solar-powered LED lighting system has proved highly successful and, as a result, we expect to see further orders of this kind coming through in 2013.

"This type of solution enables us to access an attractive offshore oil and gas market in the Gulf of Mexico, which has the potential to include structures such as the large number of unmanned platforms, which can benefit from the efficiencies that LED solar powered lighting can bring."
