Press release date: December 3, 2013

MILWAUKEE, WI USA – Phoenix Products Company Inc. has provided their most innovative LED fixtures to illuminate Rubber Tire Gantry (RTG) cranes for terminals in Houston, Texas, USA as well as Lomé, Togo in Western Africa.

Phoenix has supplied its ModComŽ 300W LED Floodlights for eight RTGs now operating at the Barbours Cut Terminal at the Port of Houston. Each girder requires only three ModCom Hi's with customized spot optics while two of the same ModCom Hi's are mounted on the trolley.

The Port of Houston Authority also took advantage of Phoenix's recently introduced EcoMod™ LED Floodlights, engineered specifically for the demands of port handling equipment. A second shipment of three RTG cranes will be delivered to the Bayport Terminal in early 2014 and will be among the first RTG's operating with EcoMod fixtures installed.

Halfway around the world, Lomé Container Terminal in Lomé, Togo will receive twelve new RTG cranes illuminated with Phoenix EcoMod LED Floodlights. On each crane, there will be twelve EcoMod 150W's installed – four on each girder and four on the trolley. In addition to the durability, reduced maintenance and repairability of Phoenix designs, Lomé Container Terminal expects reduced energy usage over the previously used 400W HID fixtures. Along with the instant-on capability of the LED floodlighting, these combined benefits made the selection of the Phoenix EcoMod fixtures an attractive investment on the new equipment.

Ryan Hertel, Global Manager for Ports & Terminals at Phoenix says, "We are proud to partner with the Port of Houston Authority and Lomé Container Terminal to support their pursuit of operational efficiency and greater sustainability. LED technology has opened up a lot of doors for terminal facilities like these and allowed them to maximize their resources."

A privately held company founded in 1892, Phoenix Products Company, Inc. has evolved alongside the city of Milwaukee and is still proud to call it home. Phoenix is a leading lighting manufacturer of high quality, durable products that are built to withstand even the harshest of conditions. Customers take advantage of Phoenix Products' innovative LED options to dramatically increase lifespan, decrease maintenance costs, and significantly reduce energy consumption.
