APM-T Tanger Med – Marokko
Cost savings, energy savings, higher productivity and safer working conditions are all caused by better light at the APM-T terminal in Tangier Med.
At APM-T Tanger Med, Yourlight has replaced all High-Pressure Sodium lighting on the STS cranes in one piece at the Mediterranean in the north of Morocco. The 1000W and 400W luminaires have been replaced with our 315W and 150W luminaires respectively. This is of great benefit to the view on the spot since the color rendering (Color Rendering Index) of the white light with Ra = 92 is experienced considerably better than the yellow light of the old luminaires. This results in more productivity and safety at APM-T. In addition, a cost saving of no less than 71% was realized. This investment has already earned itself back within a year and a half.
APM-T is determined to reduce the environmental footprint of its terminals worldwide. The lighting of harbor cranes and terrains is a large part of the total energy consumption. The luminaires burn for an average of 12 hours per day (4380 hours per year). Energy-saving lighting not only saves costs but also reduces the burden on the environment. In Tanger, APM-T emits 107 tons less CO2 per crane per year when using Yourlight lighting.
