A state-of-the-art solar-powered light-emitting diode (LED) light tower offers exceptional visibility while ensuring compliance with noise and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission regulations.

The HiLight S2+ LED light tower from Atlas Copco does not require fuel to operate, emits no harmful emissions and is said to operate noise free. 

Compared with traditional diesel-driven technologies, the S2+ can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 6 t helping users comply with carbon emission and noise regulations.

The light tower’s four 90 W LED floodlights deliver 2 000 m2 light coverage at an average of 20 Luxes, offering excellent visibility and creating a bright and safe work environment in gloomy conditions and after sunset.

“Our versatile, next-generation solar light tower can operate autonomously for up to 11 hours at 100% operation where solar yield is greater than energy demand,” notes Atlas Copco Power Technique business line manager: portable products David Stanford. “Importantly, for users, this means maximum uptime and subsequent high productivity. In the event that energy demand exceeds solar yield, operators have the convenient choice of charging the tower with Atlas Copco’s clean energy ZenergiZe energy storage system or any external power grid.”

The unit’s batteries can be recharged using solar energy or an external power source which takes approximately eight hours and three hours respectively. “The tower is equipped with a dimming function that prevents light and energy from being wasted unnecessarily, further increasing autonomous operation to meet lighting requirements for long work shifts,” adds Stanford.

The use of a fully directional LED lens design ensures that light coverage is maximised while reducing ‘lighting waste’. The LEDs’ lifespan of 50 000 hours further maximises uptime and productivity while reducing replacement costs and maintenance requirements. The lenses in the S2+ tower feature a special optic that is designed specifically for construction and mining applications.

The ergonomically designed light tower is said to be quick and easy to set up and the extendible solar panels can be pulled out from the pop-up canopy and adjusted to best align with the sun’s position for maximum solar yield. There are no external cables, refuelling is not required and the external control panel also facilitates operation. The portable, compact light tower is designed to be easy to move around a job site and to transport between sites.

The light tower is designed to be robust – it can perform in extreme temperature extremes of -5 °C to 50 °C and at high altitude without derating, making it particularly suitable for stringent environments and remote work sites.

The pop-up canopy enables easy access for services or maintenance, helping to keep downtime to a minimum. Low maintenance and service costs combined with efficient performance and no fuel costs, make the unit a cost-effective option.  

The HiLight S2+ offers a sustainable lighting solution for use in the infrastructure, mining and oil and gas sectors and helps event organisers and construction projects in urban areas comply with noise regulations.
