Teekay Offshore selected Glamox, a company specialised in LED lighting, to supply lighting to their four shuttle tankers. Glamox developed vessels equipped with technology that can substantially reduce the emission of CO2, NOx and SOx. Aurora Spirit was the first vessel to be launched from the floating dock at Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea. Three more vessels are set to be completed in 2019/2020.
Thanks to the innovations integrated into the design concept, the vessels are able to use their own emission as fuel, which reduces the annual emission potential up to 42%, with fuel consumption reduced by up to 22% compared to traditional shuttle tankers. This contributes to the creation of environmentally friendly shuttle tankers.
The four vessels supply navigation and search lights, explosion-proof lights, interior and technical lighting to the Teekay Offshore shuttle tankers. Glamox has a strong focus on sustainability and energy efficiency when it designs new lighting products, hence why Glamox LED luminaires consume less than half of the energy of conventional marine lighting and produce considerably less waste.
