Shellharbour Airport - Albion Park Rail, NSW
The Shellharbour Airport services Wollongong and the neighbouring southern suburbs of regional New South Wales. It is approximately 21kms from the Wollongong Central Business District (CBD) in the Illawarra region, and is the largest airport in rural NSW.
The Shellharbour Airport Development is a new $20.35 million government and council co-contribution project that has seen new runway overlays, runway lighting, and additional aircraft car parks, as well as a new terminal building introduced at the airport. The transformation to the facility has allowed for better service to the community by supporting planned expansion of aircraft traffic and improving reliability in a variety of weather conditions.
Versalux provided a bespoke lighting design, offering premium quality fixtures for a practical and sustainable solution, in collaboration with Mode Design, Stowe Australia, and VOS Group.
Shellharbour Airport required high-performance exterior luminaires to serve the airport’s extended car park. Versalux’s product range includes a vast outdoor range of high-performing LED pole top exterior luminaires and recommended the SMART series as the sole fixtures required to meet the project’s requirements.
The SMART pole top luminaires have been strategically laid out in a clever arrangement to efficiently illuminate the car park as well as adjoining external areas of the airport. At night, the artificial lighting provides for a high level of safety for vehicles and pedestrians, but also stands out aesthetically in the twilight landscape of the facility.
Offering multiple sizes, outputs, mounting configurations, and beam spreads, SMART luminaires are an ideal solution for car park illumination featuring premium optics for powerful, direct illumination in a safe and secure environment as a long term solution for Shellharbour Airport.
