Case study: Eco-friendly customized lighting solutions for a large LNG project (Chevron Gorgon, Australia)
Chevron asked Eaton to come up with a way to mitigate the effects of light pollution on the nocturnal nesting behaviors of sea
turtles at their Gorgon LNG facility being built in in Australia. Understanding that the turtles are attracted to blue-white light, the team developed a lens that limited the wave length to a warmer (yellow-red) light.
The result is that the turtles now return to the safety of the ocean after laying their eggs instead of going toward the lights. At the same time the lights use long life fluorescent lamps, thus reducing maintenance and energy costs.
