Glamox, a world leader in lighting, is replicating its success in lighting European offshore windfarms with three separate orders for LED lighting for the turbine foundation transition pieces for three fixed offshore windfarms in Taiwan and South Korea.

“The energy transition from offshore hydrocarbons to renewable power presents us with huge opportunities,” said Tommy Stranden, Chief Commercial & Sales Officer of Glamox’s Marine, Offshore & Wind business. “We lead the way globally in lighting wind farms and are seeing strong interest in our LED lighting portfolio worldwide. We’ve been lighting offshore structures for around 50 years and are unique in providing a one-stop-shop for technical lighting for wind farms and their installation and support vessels.”

All three contracts are for lighting offshore wind turbine foundation transition pieces. These steel structures connect the wind turbines to their monopile foundations. The transition piece helps with the alignment of the turbine tower. It protects the foundation from corrosion and is equipped with access components such as platforms, ladders, and boat landing systems. It must therefore be well-lit for access and maintenance and requires lighting that is capable of withstanding harsh marine conditions.

Glamox today announced the following contracts:

Hai Long Wind Farm 2 and 3, Taiwan: wind farm with an installed capacity of 1,044 MW, located 40-50 km offshore in the Taiwan Strait at depths of 35-55 m.
