3 Top Tips to Finding an Industrial Lighting Tower for Your Project

Mar 1, 2023 | Lighting

Is your site operational during times of low light or darkness? An industrial lighting tower is the simple solution to keep your project moving. 

With a wide range of lighting towers available, there are plenty of options to suit your needs, whether you need to light up a short-term event, or a large scale project. So, to help you find the perfect fit, in this article we breakdown the key considerations and share our top tips on choosing the right industrial lighting tower.

Tip #1: Get the power source right

When it comes to powering lighting towers, you have three main options: solar, diesel and hybrid. If your site receives ample light in the day and your operational hours are not too demanding, a solar lighting tower is a smart and sustainable choice. Not only do solar light towers require zero fuel (which saves you time and money), they also produce no noise or carbon emissions. Powerful, yet cost-effective and low maintenance to boot, it’s easy to see why our solar lighting towers are now the first choice for some of Australia’s biggest projects, including the Sydney Gateway Project

However, if your site location is in an area with low light and you need absolute reliability around the clock, our diesel and hybrid lighting towers may be a better fit. With the ability to be fully customised and operate 24/7, diesel and hybrid lighting towers will light your site in the harshest conditions, in any weather, without missing a beat.

Tip #2: Find the features you need

Our lighting towers are available with features to suit most applications, however, if your project is unique, our team can help you customise a solution to suit so you have all the capabilities you need. Some of the key considerations include:

  • Light configurations: available from 50W to 4000W for projects large and small
  • Custom options: choose from trailer, brake and power upgrades to suit your needs
  • Added extras: we can also include sensors, timers and batteries if required.

Tip #3: Rent or Buy?

With the option to choose a rental arrangement or to purchase your lighting towers outright, you can plan your budget needs accordingly. Plus, with flexible arrangements available, you can easily scale up or down, giving you the ability to respond dynamically as your requirements and budget demands shift throughout the life of your project.

“We recently purchased a fleet of Solar Trailers with a set expectation and design requirement for our remote site requirements. The team at Viking worked with us to complete the specification and orders. The fleet has been on the job for around three months now, meeting our requirements. We are looking at more units currently with the team and look forward to continued supply in the future.”
