KJVG (Kellogg Joint Venture Group Gorgon) have specified exclusively Hadar Lighting's innovative HDL106 LED floodlights for The Gorgon Project, Australia. This project is one of the world's largest natural gas developments.

Gorgon is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource natural gas project in Australia's history. The scheme will develop the Greater Gorgon Area gas fields, located about 130 kilometres off the north-west coast of Western Australia in water depths of up to 4,300ft. Gas is collected via sub-sea wellheads and piped to gas processing and LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) shipping facilities on Barrow Island. Carbon Dioxide (which accounts for some 13% of the gas stream) is then stripped out and injected into formations deep below the island whilst LNG and gas condensate is offloaded via a deep water jetty to onto LNG carriers and oil tankers, for delivery to overseas customers.

A-Belco Group CEO, Brian Trench, commented, “It’s a great boost to us and the North East region of England and a result of the hard work that the team has put into both developing and manufacturing the LED floodlight products and then selling them to the world wide market. Our hazardous area lighting products were specified by both of the final consortiums that bid for this part of the project which in itself is a massive tribute to their quality.”

“The LED hazardous area flood lights produce purer light, weigh less, last far longer than traditional sodium or halogenequivalents, have no warm up period and have an expected lifespan in excess of 10 years without any maintenance in line with industry’s preferred ‘fit and forget’ requirements. In addition, power consumption of the new Hadar HDL106 floodlight is approximately 40% of traditional equivalent, with various beam dispersal patterns of between 10 degrees and 120 degrees meaning the light goes where it’s designed to go rather than being wasted."

In addition to the financial benefits of specifying the Hadar HDL106 floodlights, their procurement was also greatly influenced by environmental considerations in that the lights are 'turtle-friendly' in this highly sensitive environment which is one of the world's top breeding grounds for sea turtles. Not only does their use actually reduce light pollution by ensuring the light only goes where it's required, but a filter actually makes the light invisible to Barrow Island's flat backed turtle population.

Traditional bright light from the 24 hour operation of large oil and gas exploration projects is known to disorient young turtles so that restricting light emissions has been a top environmental consideration on the project's developers, Chevron, ExxonMobil and Shell.
