Guglielmo Marconi Airport- Bologna (BO)

Revetec SEC STP range of luminous flux regulators for lighting management in Bologna airport

BACKGROUND

Under the program Greenlight, the Technical Department of SAB, the Company that manages the airport "Guglielmo Marconi" in Bologna, has decided to invest in energy saving starting in two areas:

  • The aircraft parking area
  • Garage of technical vehicle

THE SOLUTION AND BENEFITS

The interventions in the garage of technical vehicle were :

  • Installation of a floor heating system at low temperature
  • Installation of source controllers Intelux NG (Revetec srl ) for the external and internal lighting dimming


The lighting in the garage is driven by a photocell that adjusts the luminous flux of fluorescent lamps 2x58W according to the contribution of the external natural light, thus stabilizing the brightness of the environment and allowing considerable energy savings.
The lighting outside the garage, however, is regulated by preset working cycles .

For the lighting of aircraft parking area, Revetec Power Controllers were used:

  • No. 2 Power Controllers SEC STP QIR 90 (3 x 30 KVA)
  • No. 1 light controller SDL complete by Illumination sensor

The lighting of the aircraft parking area is obtained by High Pressure Sodium lamps 1000W lamps installed on the control tower and several mast equipped by High pressure Sodium lamps 1x1000W and 2x400W.
The on/off switching of the two Power Controllers is managed by the SDL TC unit , based on a defined ambient light values.
Energy saving is obtained by appropriate preset working cycle based on the aircraft traffic.
