(businesspress24) - Cambridge, UK Wednesday 22nd May 2019 Telensa – one of the world’s leading providers of connected lighting and smart city data applications – based in Cambridge UK, has announced that its smart lighting controls are being deployed as part of the Port of Tyne’s LED lighting upgrade project.

The Port of Tyne, in North East England, is one of the UK’s major ports - handling a diverse range of cargoes including containers, commodities, manufactured and retail goods, as well as supporting renewables and offshore services. Alongside the installation of Low Carbon Lighting (Raytec) LED lights, the Port’s deployment of Telensa’s PLANet solution is already underway with over 800 LED lights being connected across the 250-hectare site on the River Tyne, and is expected to be completed by August 2019.

The project to replace all lighting with low energy LED lights with wireless controls is part of the Port of Tyne’s infrastructure plan that has seen it continually invest in capital plant and equipment to ensure it can meet the requirements of its customers now and in the future.

Telensa PLANet is an end-to-end intelligent street lighting system, consisting of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, a dedicated wireless network owned by the customer, and a central management application. The system pays for itself in reduced energy and maintenance costs, improves quality of service through automatic fault reporting, and uses streetlight poles for supporting hubs for smart sensors. With more than 1.7 million lights connected globally, Telensa PLANet is the world’s most popular connected streetlight system.

Steven Clapperton, Port of Tyne Harbour Master & Director of HSEQ, said: “The Port of Tyne is committed to investing in intelligent infrastructure to develop the Port’s long-term future and sustainability.

“Making the Port’s outdoor lighting smart will reduce our energy and maintenance costs, and provide greater flexibility to alter light levels remotely across our entire site.



Will Gibson, Telensa Founder and Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are delighted to be working with Port of Tyne, the latest in a series of deployments at ports and airports around the world as they look to make their lighting adaptive, reduce their carbon footprints and deploy a network for smart sensors.”
