Strict requirements for the lanterns
Sabik started in 2011 to deliver lanterns to support the renewal project of the ports in the Southern part of Russia. The requirements for the lanterns were high, they needed to be working in harsh weather conditions with low power consumption and be robust in design. The lanterns used in the first phase of the project in Novorossiysk were LED 155, VP LED, LS 100 and ODSL 200. LED 155 is a general purpose LED lantern commonly used on both fixed and oating structures and the VP LED is a lantern designed to be used also in moderate ice conditions. The LS 100 LED signal is designed for applications of short and medium range directional light, such as port entry signals. ODSL 200 is an innovative, compact new sector lantern with accurate sector borders.
