Holistic approach to site-wide lighting management

The creation of one of London’s largest and most exciting new office, retail, leisure and cultural quarters has been divided into eight phases, and multiple contractors and subcontractors have been appointed to work on Battersea Power Station, the second phase of the development. The lighting management system adopts a holistic approach, and Delmatic’s site-wide DALI-2 lighting management and emergency monitoring solution extends seamlessly across the packages and through the shell and core of the retail, residential and external spaces of the Power Station. The holistic system has been further extended throughout the residential and external spaces of Phase 3A.

Total flexibility and energy efficiency

Delmatic’s state-of-the-art DALI-2 system delivers total flexibility and control of normal, specialist and emergency lighting across the project. Powerful, modular DALI-2 Buswire controllers, with between one to five DALI universe capsules dependent on the area they control, provide the ideal solution for the complex nature of the project, while also being economical and energy-efficient.

Individual addressing of each luminaire enables switching and dimming arrangements to be configured, managed and adapted through interactive graphical software without the need to access equipment or carry-out wiring changes. Energy-efficiency is optimised through DALI-2 presence detectors and multisensors which adjust lighting to changing conditions of occupancy and daylight detection, while Delmatic’s custom-configured touchscreens offer local control of scene setting within specialist areas.

Integrated control of external lighting allows for complete control and management of lighting levels, scenes and coordinated colour scenarios to suit daylight ambience as well as sync with events, holidays and festivals.

Coordinated DMX lighting scenes provide dramatic elements

Battersea Power Station’s four chimneys, world-famous icons on the London skyline, are ringed by DMX colour changing floodlights, configured and coordinated to create dramatic light shows for special occasions and events. DMX lighting extends across the Sky Lounge and roof top gardens with all lighting scenes and scenarios configured through graphical visualisation software across the IP backbone.

Versatile site-wide network

Delmatic’s Smart IP Routers seamlessly mesh the various packages, while the modular application and distributed intelligence aspects of the Delmatic network provide the flexibility and versatility required to achieve independent, stand-alone operation for phased handover.

Comprehensive DALI-2 emergency lighting

The system incorporates Delmatic’s enhanced DALI-2 emergency light testing and monitoring package, integrating with the emergency lighting installation to monitor the operational status of every emergency lamp and driver. Delmatic’s advanced Lightscape software delivers unmatched real-time visibility and analysis of site-wide lighting, as well as emergency light testing and battery monitoring across the site, within a comprehensive package.

Phase 3 of the Battersea Power Station development is home to a new high street known as, The Electric Boulevard, which runs from the south of the Power Station, between the stunning Frank Gehry designed Prospect Place and Foster + Partners’ Battersea Roof Gardens, towards the new Battersea Power Station London Underground station. The lighting in the new station is also controlled by Delmatic’s DALI system as part of a network of London Underground and Crossrail stations managed and monitored by Delmatic smart systems.
