Lighting for Docks

Ports, docks, and container terminals are all active, and dynamic spaces. Lighting them requires careful consideration of lux levels, uniformity, glare, etc., while also aiming to provide a solution that minimises power consumption and maintenance costs.

Typically mounting on high masts of 40-50m, Kellwood has the experience and marine-grade product range to support your container terminal or port lighting project.
