Aids to navigation

External photocells

Orga’s explosion proof external photocells provide automatic control of the marine lights, aeronautical obstruction lights and the helideck lights at dawn and dusk, when used in conjunction with the Navaids Central Control Panel (NCCP). The photocell measures the outdoor light level and relays this information to the NCCP, which subsequently controls the activation and deactivation of lighting fixtures at dusk and at dawn respectively. Orga’s explosion proof photocell is one of our cutting-edge marine aids to navigation systems.

Why do you need an explosion proof photocell?

Essentially a peripheral device, the photocell is mainly needed for security purposes. The adequate marking of man-made offshore platforms is vital to ensure the safety of navigation and to protect the structure and its personnel. By determining the level of available light, the photocell will ensure that your platform or rig will be automatically illuminated and visible to shipping at dusk, at night or during periods of poor visibility. Thanks to the control provided by the photocell, the average life of the light source will be extended and power savings will be being made.

Why choose explosion proof external photocells of Orga?

The way ahead with a fresh look

We are proud of our heritage of 45 years as trusted partner in solutions for marking assets and landing areas to ensure safe operations. Now it was time to reflect our ongoing strive for innovation and vibrant relationships in a brand new identity. We want our brand to reflect our values and capabilities in protecting people, assets and the environment. You will notice new and refreshed identity elements like our logo and brighter colours. The yellow reflects a linkage to signaling and safety marking. We kept our lower case Orga letters referring to our heritage and DNA.
