Norderney shines in a new light

NORDERNEY. Port areas need to be optimally lit for traffic, whether that be on the docks or on the water. Nevertheless, older lighting systems offer a high potential to save energy. Against this background, Nports installed 82 new LED lamps in the Port of Nordeney in 2021, and have been bringing more light to operations there since December. According to Nports, savings of 30 per cent can be achieved solely by replacing the old sodium-vapour lamps with the new LED lamps. Overall, this action should help to save half of the previous energy consumption.
