DP World

Leading provider of smart logistics solutions DP World has a range of facilities including  two deep water ports with freight rail terminals at London Gateway and Southampton, a rapidly expanding logistics park and an advanced software business providing online links to customers and border control.

Each year, the company transports around 3.6 million containers – enough to stretch from London to Buenos Aires and back, and carries over £43 billion of goods to and from countries beyond the EU.

To create its industry leading facility in Southampton, DP World appointed engineers to put together a plan to massively improve a 40-year-old building it had acquired at the docks.  A key part of this was effective lighting.

Richard Lawrence, director of Premium Electrical Services looked at several lighting product suppliers. He said: “NVC worked with us to provide the right products that were suited for DP World’s application and were cost competitive too.”

A variety of NVC fittings were installed by Premium’s team. They included OREGON IKO9, IP20 rated industrial luminaires some of which required scissor lifts to access the warehouse’s 20m ceilings as well as GREENLAND IK 10, IP66-rated non-corrosive, impact and chemical resistant, industrial LED luminaires and LYNX IK08, IP66 rated LED asymmetric floodlights.

Richard continued: “NVC’s fittings were simple to install and really user friendly which made my team and the client very happy.”
