    Three islands, one connected LED lighting system 

    Ports of Tenerife


    Since 2013, the Port Authority has been using the Interact City connected LED lighting system to improve efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint and provide better service to users at the Ports of Tenerife, El Hierro and La Gomera.

    The best part of using the software, is that it provides control of both the new Philips LED luminaires, but also to the high pressure sodium light points that haven’t yet been replaced by LED luminaires.”

    Customer challenge

    The Port Authority was interested in an upgrade to the three ports, and from the beginning, lighting was considered an integral part of this transformation process. “We were clear we wanted to make a change to LED,” explains Javier Mora, Head of the Department of Infrastructure for the Ports of Tenerife. “We did tests with several brands and products, but none offered us as good a result as Signify. We spent a long time looking for a tool that we could use to control luminaires - and then Signify introduced us to the Interact City connected LED lighting system.”

    Remote management and control

    The Port Authority saw great value in choosing the new connected lighting and control software and they proceeded with the port lighting upgrade at three different locations. Each uses Philips Iridium LED luminaires, controlled and managed by Interact Lighting asset management software. “There is no longer any need to organize regular on-site visits to check whether all light points are still up and running. If a light point fails, the system sends an automatic notification, which includes all the information that we need to fix the issue as soon as possible,” explains Santiago Yanes, Port Operations Manager. Additionally, the new luminaires are designed to shine light towards the structures instead of into the sky.
