Why Choose LED Lighting

All the talk about saving money and saving the earth can be realised with the use of light-emitting diodes (LED) lighting.


LED lighting products efficiently produce up to about 80 % more light, as compared to their incandescent cousins. This is because around 80% of electrical energy in LED lighting is produced in the form of light energy, and around 20% in the form of heat energy. The reverse in percentages is reflective of the incandescent light bulb energy output.


They may be more expensive upon purchase, but the cost-savings that come with reduced power consumption in the long run sure outweigh the initial investment cost of purchasing and installing LED lighting. With more light, less heat and at a lower cost, LED can greatly impact your energy use.


There is an advantage in using LED lighting in large offshore infrastructural projects like platforms and oil rigs, or even onboard marine vessels. When switched on, the LED will light up immediately.


Quality LED light bulbs last longer than incandescent light bulbs and are more durable. Their fixtures are more firmly built, to withstand the harshest of outdoor conditions, especially extreme weather conditions in the open sea. Little maintenance is required, as they are less likely to be damaged nor need frequent replacing.


Also, switching the LED lights on and off does not affect the lifespan of the lights, whereas the same action will adversely affect the lifespan of incandescent light bulbs.


When an LED light is near its end of life, it will appear dimmer as it emits a lower output of light. The advantage here is the signal it gives for you to prepare to get a change of LED lighting on standby for replacement, thus ensuring no downtime in operations.


In incandescent light bulbs, they generally burn out and plunge the room or workplace into darkness immediately. Anyone can be caught off guard in such a situation.


Choosing and installing LED lighting is the clear direction to go, be it cost-savings for any company or doing your part in exercising social responsibility to lower carbon footprint in drilling and well operations, for a greener future.


Now is the time to choose LED lighting and get your incandescent bulbs replaced!
