Aqua Signal Supplies Lighting Systems For Cruise Ships

About 20,000 or more light sources are needed for equipping a modern passenger ship. Even a freighter has between 500 and several thousand lighting points.

Therefore, the responsibility of equipping a modern commercial vessel is no small task.

One of the most successful marine lighting technology companies is Aqua Signal AG of Bremen.

Founded in 1868, Aqua Signal has designed and delivered complete lighting systems for vessels ranging from passenger boats and fishing vessels to drill rigs, naval ships and cruise ships. Aqua Signal has had particular success in the cruise vessel and ferry sector, supplying marine lighting packages for the Crown Princess, Homeric, Horizon, Robin Hood, Olau Britannia and Seabourn Spirit.

A typical Aqua Signal solution is the decentralized concept for emergency lighting on board ships. In emergency situations, the electronic emergency lighting systems developed by Aqua Signal, which comply with the SOLAS guidelines, offer on-board light—and thus safety— even after complete failure of the electricity supply. The most prominent feature of the decentralized supply concept is integrated or retrofittable external electronic battery units. These existing light sources can easily be upgraded without necessitating any modifications to the overall appearance of the lighting equipment. This is especially important in a cruise vessel which requires form as well as function.
