LED manufacturer Dialight has received a major order from an unnamed US power plant operator for over 1,000 LED lighting fixtures.

The order, which consists of 1,050 LED Linear fixtures and 30 High Bay fixtures for use across the power plant, has a contract value of around $400,000.

"Given the remote location of the plant, the customer sought a highly reliable lighting solution and was specified by one of the world's largest engineering firms," the company said.

The plant in question is a 250 megawatt (MW) solar thermal power plant in California.

Dialight Chief Executive Roy Burton said: "This order signals further penetration of the clean energy market and is a clear illustration of how our lighting fixtures can be used in the most diverse of environments.

"The durability of our lighting is clearly being recognised by major engineering firms as part of the specification process and LED lighting is well placed to adapt to different conditions."
