Glamox has won a contract to light two Vinga series vessels, regarded as the most advanced high-end intermediate-sized chemical tankers in the world, owned and operated by Sweden’s Furetank AB. Glamox will provide complete outdoor and indoor marine LED lighting for its two latest vessels in the series.

“Furetank is committed to sustainable shipping and helping our customers to decarbonise their supply chain. Our decision to expand the Vinga series is down to the scarcity of environmentally friendly alternatives in the market,” said Furetank chief executive Lars Höglund. “This latest order makes Glamox our lighting partner for the past 19 vessels out of 22 we’ve commissioned in the series. Its product quality, reliability, and focus on sustainability make it a natural partner for us.”

“We share Furetank’s commitment to decarbonising the seas and our energy-efficient lighting will enable the vessels to save fuel and support the company’s emission reduction ambitions,” said Tommy Stranden, Chief Sales and Commercial Officer of Glamox’s Marine, Offshore & Wind business. “Each vessel will be fitted with around 800 LED lights that will not only save energy and fuel costs but require around two-thirds less maintenance than conventional marine lighting due to their long life. This represents another important cost saving.”

The two new vessels, like their sisters, have a dual-fuel capability and run on liquefied natural gas/liquefied biogas or gasoil. They also incorporate features that reduce fuel and energy consumption, resulting in much lower emissions of CO2, nitrogen oxide, sulphur oxide, and hazardous particles. The vessels have scored the best Energy Efficiency Design Index or EEDI value in their segment globally, meaning that they are the most energy-efficient vessels according to the International Maritime Organization.

Glamox will provide for each vessel navigation lights - Series 75, deck lights, explosion-proof lighting - TX60 LED, flood lights - RLX C G2 Floodlight, and searchlights - SL40 R5 Xenon. It will also provide all manner of lighting for the interior of the vessel, including lighting for the engine room, storage rooms and passageways, corridors, galley, bridge, and crew quarters. Included in the lighting package are marine-certified luminaires made in Molde, Norway.

The environmentally-friendly Vinga tankers are Ice Class 1A with a 16,300-deadweight ton (dwt) and designed by Furetank and FKAB Marine Design. They are being built by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Yangzhou) Dingheng Co. Ltd, at its shipyard in Yangzhou, China, where it will also install the lighting. The vessels will be delivered at the end of 2026 and the beginning of 2027 respectively. They will then enter into the Gothia Tanker Alliance and be operated by Furetank out of Gothenburg.

The marine-certified LED lighting for the two new vessels will be delivered in Q3, 2025.

Glamox lands contract to light the world’s most environmentally friendly intermediate-sized chemical tankers
Glamox, a world leader in lighting, today announced that its UK company, which is branded ‘Glamox Luxonic’, has changed its company brand name to ‘Glamox’, effective today. The change recognises the growing power of the Glamox brand, the development of the UK business, particularly over the last five years, and the group’s commitment to continued growth in the UK.

Glamox, which has been present in the UK market since 1967, acquired the Luxonic Group Ltd in April 2019. The UK company has a production facility in Basingstoke, England, where it manufactures indoor and outdoor LED luminaires for commercial buildings, offices, schools, and industrial buildings. Increasingly, its Basingstoke plant is producing luminaires that are being marketed and sold not only in the UK but across Glamox’s main European markets.

“We see strong growth in the UK lighting market in the years ahead. At the same time, we now have the scale and capabilities to support the global group,” said David Hunt, Managing Director of Glamox’s UK business. “We have huge knowledge and expertise in the UK market, supported by a best-in-class manufacturing facility, so the time is right to simplify our brand name and leverage the growing awareness of the Glamox brand.”

“The Luxonic brand will continue to be used for existing branded products but will eventually disappear over time as all the new products are branded Glamox,” said Nina Hol, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer for the Glamox Group. “From a practical sense, nothing changes for our customers and partners. They will continue to enjoy the quality products and services they are used to.”

Glamox Luxonic’s customers tend to be consultants and contractors. End-user customers include BNP Paribas Bank, Heathrow Airport, Bloomberg, Amazon, Astra Zeneca,, British Airways, Bank of England, McLaren Automotive, Ford, ABP ports, and Scottish Power, to name a few.

Glamox Luxonic’s legal name will change later this year.

Glamox is replicating its success in lighting European offshore windfarms with three separate orders for LED lighting for the turbine foundation transition pieces for three fixed offshore windfarms in Taiwan and South Korea.

“The energy transition from offshore hydrocarbons to renewable power presents us with huge opportunities,” said Tommy Stranden, Chief Commercial & Sales Officer of Glamox’s Marine, Offshore & Wind business. “We lead the way globally in lighting wind farms and are seeing strong interest in our LED lighting portfolio worldwide. We’ve been lighting offshore structures for around 50 years and are unique in providing a one-stop-shop for technical lighting for wind farms and their installation and support vessels.”

All three contracts are for lighting offshore wind turbine foundation transition pieces. These steel structures connect the wind turbines to their monopile foundations. The transition piece helps with the alignment of the turbine tower. It protects the foundation from corrosion and is equipped with access components such as platforms, ladders, and boat landing systems. It must therefore be well-lit for access and maintenance and requires lighting that is capable of withstanding harsh marine conditions.

Oslo, Norway, 5 October 2023: Glamox, one of the world’s leading lighting companies, is partnering with GK, one of Norway’s premier technical installation contractors, to replace 34,000 fluorescent tube lights in the University Hospital of North Norway (UNN) in Tromsø. The hospital opened in 2001 and is the largest in Northern Norway. The retrofit lighting project will see the hospital’s fluorescent tube luminaires replaced by a variety of Glamox energy-efficient LED luminaires, which will reduce the amount of electricity used for lighting by as much as 69 percent. The key driver for the project was the phase-out starting this year of the most common forms of fluorescent lighting due to the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive.

“There are at least 10 million fluorescent tubes in Norway alone, all of which will need replacing over time. Under the EU directive, fluorescent lighting is being phased out as it contains mercury, a toxic substance potentially harmful to humans and animals if not disposed of safely,” said Astrid Simonsen Joos, Group CEO of Glamox.

“Having our luminaires selected for this project is extra special for me as I was born and raised in Tromsø. The UNN hospital is a pioneer in doing what’s right for its patients, staff, and the environment. I’m also pleased that the switch to our LED luminaires will enable the hospital to make significant electricity savings on lighting and reduce its carbon footprint,” said Simonsen Joos.

The lighting comprises LED linear luminaires, downlighters, as well as ‘LED kits’. The latter allows the existing luminaire housing to be reused. The new lighting will be installed in all areas of the hospital’s buildings, including wards, patient recovery rooms, staff rooms, toilets, offices, technical rooms, and accommodation for nurses. Some of the luminaires will be connected and controlled using a DALI-based control system.

GK will also install Glamox’s special cleanroom luminaires in operating theatres. These are luminaires made from materials that can withstand heavy cleaning regimes and tested at the Fraunhofer IPA facility for the testing of ultraclean technology in Stuttgart, Germany.

Many of the new LED luminaires in the hospital are ‘connect ready,’ meaning that, in the future, they can be connected to smart light management systems for monitoring and precise control.

GK will undertake the installation in phases and has a contract with the Hospital Purchasing Service (Sykehusinnkjøp HF) until July 2025, with the option for up to a two-year extension.

Who says robust marine luminaires can’t look stylish too? Glamox, one of the world’s leading lighting companies, has launched a new range of stylish recessed ceiling luminaires to help operators of vessels and offshore installations to save energy and reduce their carbon footprint. The AL40 LED range of indoor luminaires is specially designed to light the interior of vessels and offshore installations. The robust luminaires provide comfortable and glare-free lighting for locations where crew and passengers spend a lot of time. This includes offices, cabin corridors, staircases, crew cabins, control rooms, and the bridge. On an offshore rig, the AL40 luminaire is ideal for areas like the gym, locker rooms, mess rooms and crew areas.

The first vessel to use the Glamox AL40 is Royal Caribbean International’s next-generation cruise ship, Icon of the Seas. This impressive vessel will feature 50 luminaires in its offices.

Vessel and rig owners are under increasing pressure to cut energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint. The International Maritime Organization has set a goal for Net Zero emissions from shipping by 2050 and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 70% - striving for 80% - by 2040, compared to 2008 levels. Also, from 1 January 2023, it became mandatory for qualifying vessels to calculate their attained Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) to measure their energy efficiency, and to collect data for the reporting of their annual operational carbon intensity indicator (CII) and CII rating. A vessel’s carbon intensity links greenhouse gas emissions to the amount of cargo carried over the distance they travel.

“Our new environmentally friendly luminaires will help vessel operators to comply with greenhouse gas reduction targets and new regulations. The luminaires fit nearly all marine ceilings, are easy to install, and meet the latest fire ratings. Although designed for robust life at sea, their sleek minimalistic design gives them stylish looks too,” said Håkon Helmersen, Chief Commercial & Sales Officer, Marine, Offshore & Wind division at Glamox. “The luminaires can be equipped with motion sensors and be connected and controlled using a Glamox Light Management System to drive even greater energy efficiencies.”

The AL40 luminaire is principally aimed at new builds and, size permitting, can also be used in retrofit installations. When used with a light management system and sensors, the AL40 can save up to 90 percent of the electricity used by conventional fluorescent luminaires.

The fully marine-approved AL-40 range has a standard light output of 2200lm to 4000lm and light colour of 3000K and 4000K. Other variants are available on request. The luminaire is vibration resistant, meaning it can cope with harsh conditions, such as those on fishing or offshore supply vessels. The range comprises the entry-level and upgradeable AL40-GP (M) and the deluxe AL40-R (M). Both can come with an emergency lighting system with either a three-hour battery pack or an internal battery for the short luminaire.
