Train Tunnel Lighting

An impressive upgrade in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains,  where the temperatures can drop to -50°C.

Nemalux consulted to a major national railway to improve its tunnel lighting through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. A lighting audit provided detailed information to build a detailed lighting layout simulation, which helped the customer to decide on the MR Series industrial LED luminaire.

Nemalux provides tunnel lighting solutions for both train and vehicle tunnels. In this specific instance, Nemalux had the opportunity to support the design and upgrade process for a busy tunnel that is being used to transport energy resources, grain, and other goods. The use of hazardous location rated lights in this tunnel allows for safe operation even in challenging conditions.

Using advanced optics as well as industrial-grade LED lights creates a long-lasting solution while reducing reoccurring maintenance costs. In addition to equipment, Nemalux provides complimentary lighting layout services to help clients simulate multiple lighting scenes and select the best solution for the project. The simulations for this project are shown below. The image on the left is the tunnel lighting layout simulation using MR luminaires while the image on the right is the tunnel lighting layout simulation using XR luminaires.
