Vert Energy’s range of Allight mobile LED lighting towers provides dependable lighting exactly where it’s needed, including work at height.
“Allight trailer-mounted lighting towers can be easily moved from site to site, ensuring optimum productivity and enhanced safety – even for work tasks at height. In open cast mining operations, construction, electrical and road and railroad works, where safety and visibility during night work are of paramount importance, these towers provide a bespoke solution that can be tailored to specific operational requirements,” says Ryan Robertson, sales and marketing director, Vert Energy. “In the agricultural and viniculture sector, where harvesting occurs in the evening due to cool ambient temperatures, the Allight Urban product provides the perfect solution, due to its compact size and small turning circle. Another benefit is the increased security and visibility offered to event organisers at outdoor field functions.
“A key differentiator is that Allight products are built for use in all applications – including arduous mining conditions, as well as residential environments – unlike its counterparts, that are better suited towards the latter.
“The twin-axle construction, steel canopy, reinforced chassis, engineered hydraulic mast and protective safety equipment, ensure safe use in all conditions, including aggressive environments. The use of LED in mobile lighting applications in tough environments has efficiency and economy advantages compared with towers that use gas-filled metal halide lamps. The kVA required to power metal halide lamps necessitates larger engines, with heavier fuel consumption. The introduction of LED has led to smaller, compact and fuel-efficient solutions.
“An important benefit is Allight LED lighting towers have integrated fluid spillage protection bunds as standard, for environmental compliance.”
This flexible range encompasses small mobile units, larger trailer mounted units and fixed position super skid units, with various mast options. Specially-designed highwall overhang systems and carefully selected light assemblies are also available, for exact lighting requirements of every project. All components, including lamps and lights, are integrated into the mast design for maximum output reach.
MSGEN2 LED 168K-9 lighting towers offer over 50 000 hours of light per unit and only require re-fuelling every two weeks, on the basis of 12 hours of operation every night. These towers, with extra low voltage (DC) are powered by Perkins 2-cylinder water cooled diesel engines. Six 300 W LED low glare lamps produce 168 000 lumens, with no delay of warm-up or cool down time. Each LED floodlight provides 28 000 effective lumens after stabilisation. Individually adjustable lamps enable precise focusing of the light. Larger 8 unit 300 W units are also available.
The total control system encompasses an easy start/stop facility, hydraulic mast, location tracking and performance monitoring via a notepad or smart phone.
These units have been designed for low maintenance requirements, with 500 hour service intervals. Large doors enable quick and easy service access and the plug and play system, with no hard-wired componentry, ensures easy servicing and parts replacement.
Vert Energy is also the authorised sales and support partner for the extensive Leroy Somer range of standard and adapted AC and DC motors, geared/brake motors, as well as Leroy Somer variable speed drives and Alternators and Automatic Voltage Regulators. Also in the range are DEIF generator controls and API/Covrad GT Heat Transfer, as well as ASCO automatic transfer switches and Avtron and Froment load banks.
