Tranberg wins major order with innovative lighting system

R. STAHL AG launches a newly developed lighting system for helidecks on the market via its Norwegian subsidiary. For Tranberg AS, this is the largest order in the more than 114 years of its company history.

Tranberg lighting systemAs part of its new product initiative, Tranberg AS has rolled out its innovative Circle & H Helideck Lighting Solution. When the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) released its latest standard (CAP 437) for lighting on offshore helicopter landing areas in 2013, Tranberg AS and its development partners began to work on implementing the new regulations and now offers its customers an innovative lighting solution.

Convinced by the quality of the system, a major southern UKCS Oil & Gas Operator placed an initial order for 10 helideck lighting systems with further 10 options with R. STAHL. The Operator manages a total 46 platforms in the UK sector of the North Sea and will install the first 10/20 platforms of this total with the new R. STAHL Circle and H lighting system. The quick and simple installation methods covering all helideck lighting materials as well as low maintenance and inspection costs in particular provide a competitive edge.

Besides lighting of the touchdown marking circle and the helideck identification „H“ marking, the comprehensive solution also includes the new dual colour perimeter lights. They mark the touchdown platform and give additional signals to the pilot. If gas escapes, the operator can mark the touchdown platform in red light and thus warn the pilot and close the helideck. The Tranberg/ R. STAHL AS offer is completed by the new LED floodlights with numerous benefits, such as the automatic dipping of floodlights during landing to prevent dazzle.

The helideck operators affected by CAP 437 have until 2018 to implement the new regulations – in the UK sector, this would be around 300 permanently installed platforms. In addition, other countries generally follow the CAA standards. R. STAHL sees tremendous potential for retrofitting in this field over the next three years and look forward to growing strong partnerships with all involved.
