Latest solar sighting projects
Solar bollards: Twin Waters jetty facility -Sunshine Coast
Sunshine Coast Council recently completed a significant boat ramp upgrade including jetty, extensive additional parking with a separate pathway joining them the car park and jetty area.
Solar bollards were installed around the site to provide way-finding light for early morning and evening users.
The bollards were ideal for this project as they are very vandal resistant and the quick and easy install enabled council to install without having to disrupt the rest of the project construction.
Relocatable solar lights: Glencore Ernest Henry Mine Village
The existing 240v lighting bollards along the pathways were starting to fail and were occasionally being hit by vehicles.
Due to a lot of underground services, it was not feasible to place footings in the ground, so Glencore and Orca Solar Lighting developed a relocatable concrete block that lay on top of the ground which also enabled Glencore to fine tune the location. The tilt poles enabled easy installation without an elevated work platform.
Forty x i1200 integrated solar lights with tilt poles and concrete blocks were installed.
Townsville ramps up with Vertex solar lighting
The $25 Million Townsville Recreational Boating park will provide the North Queensland recreational boating community with a world class sheltered all tide facility.

The Vertex® solar lights provide AS 11583.1 P3 lighting all night, utilising the Cree LEDway light fixtures.
