Low maintenance LED floodlights

Published:  08 December, 2016

In order to further improve the safety of employees working at its LNG plant at Melkøya, Statoil reports it has has purchased 300 FX60 LED floodlights from lighting specialist Glamox. The Melkøya plant in Norway is the world’s northernmost liquefied natural gas facility. The gas is transported from the Snøhvit gas field – the first offshore development in the Barents Sea.

Statoil says the safety of employees working at the Melkøya plant is a top priority and when a new risk analysis indicated that even floodlights installed 25 metres up in the air could be exposed to hazardous gas and therefore should be explosion-proof, Statoil decided to replace all its floodlights at Melkøya with the new FX60 LED floodlight from Glamox.
