The international lighting group Zumtobel Group has equipped the new terminal at Oslo’s airport with a modern lighting solution. Within the scope of the project, more than 21,200 Zumtobel and Thorn brand LED luminaires with Tridonic technology inside were installed. Furthermore the terminal became equipped with a well-thought-out emergency lighting and a lighting control system from Zumtobel Group Services (ZGS). The total order volume amounts to more than 5 million euros. ZGS have also recently been commissioned with the retrofitting of emergency lighting systems in another area of the airport.
Customised solution and competent advice
It was particularly important to Avinor, the company that runs the Oslo airport, that the luminaires in the new terminal visually match the existing lighting in the other areas of the airport to the greatest possible extent. The Zumtobel Group was the only tenderer that was able to meet these requirements with, tailor-made LED luminaires designed specifically for the airport.
The Zumtobel Group brands delivered a combination of standard products and luminaires that were tailor-made to precisely meet the requirements of this particular customer. The new lighting solution therefore fits in seamlessly with the new building’s architecture and also with the ambience in the old part of the building. Oslo airport benefits in several ways from the LED lighting solution. The luminaires are very energy-efficient and have an extremely long life-span, compared to other lighting systems.
The lighting is controlled with the aid of the ZGS Skyscanner: A daylight gauge head that constantly measures the incoming sunlight and adjusts the lighting accordingly to ensure that in each area, a small amount of artificial light is contributed in order to create the perfect combination of artificial light and natural daylight. The control system also takes the colour of the natural daylight into account and transfers it to the artificial lighting inside the terminal building.
Philip Widner, VP Sales Region Northern Europe, Zumtobel Group, on the cooperation: «We are very proud to have supplied one of the most renowned and modern airports in Europe with our state-of-the-art lighting solutions. The wide product portfolio of our brands made it possible to meet all of the requirements at Oslo airport and to deliver the perfect solution for a project of this size and complexity.»
