Railway Procurement Agency – LUAS goes LED
As part of campaign to reduce their carbon footprint the Railway Procurement Agency embarked on a programme of green energy initiatives in 2011.
Lighting within the Tram Fleet was one of the key areas identified as a major area where significant reductions could be achieved in terms of running cost and maintenance.
Of the many hurdles that needed to be overcome, integrating an LED system seamlessly into the electro battery system of the tram was paramount. Additionally, achieving the strict light levels and colour rendering offered further challenges. After a period of trial and testing fibreLED supplied and fitted a bespoke LED Tube from our FLTUBE LED series. The system was fitted seamlessly integrated and was specified supplied and installed by FibreLED.
