Tower Light set to expand in the South Asian mining markets.

Tower Light the Italy based manufacturer of commercial site lighting towers have confirmed several orders from the mining industry in Indonesia. The orders were placed through their official Indonesian dealer PT Verdanco, for a fleet of Tower Light VT8 4×1000 and VT1 4×1500 lighting sets.

During recent months, PT Verdanco has supplied a range of Tower Light products to many important firms within the Indonesian excavation industries. This latest order has been supplied directly to a duo of leading organisations working in the local mining market namely; Petrosea and Adaro Indonesia. Petrosea has over 41 years of experience in mining, engineering and construction, whilst Adaro Indonesia operates the largest single-site coal mine in the southern hemisphere

Tower Light have developed both the VT8 4×1000 and VT1 4×1500 sets to be ideally suited for the mining sector, combining clear lighting efficiency with low operating costs and a robust structure.

The VT8 has been developed to operate in arduous environments such as costal, tropical and mining locations. It has an individually designed, whisper-quiet, canopy protected by a toughened, treated surface and fitted with safe lockable doors. The VT8 features a strengthened 75-litre capacity metal fuel tank, delivering over 30-hours continuous operation between refuelling, and on-site stability assured via three fully adjustable stabilisers. Safe bright, lighting of up 67-lux at 32-metres is delivered from the VT8, via a manually operated vertical mast.

The VT1 is the flagship product from the Tower Light range with thousands of sets delivered annually worldwide.  The VT1 has similar robust qualities to the VT8, however the VT1 4×1500 will deliver up to 250-lux at 32-metres, ensuing that all site workers are kept properly illuminated at all times. The VT1 4×1500 features a hydraulically operated, single lever 9m mast, making it one of the simplest and safest lighting towers to operate.

Both of these lighting towers were assembled onto a skid base, making them easily towable on rough terrain. This arrangement helps to avoid the inconvenience of damage to the undercarriage and reduce the risk of punctures etc., however they could also be fitted onto a two-wheeled site or highway approved trailer, whichever is the client’s preference.
