Maintenance free lighting, TNAML® on the Sapura Ônix, pipe laying vessel

Through its maritime distributor, Repair Management Nederland BV (RMN), TechNed Benelux BV is pleased to inform you that on the vessel Sapure Onix, built by IHC Merwede, the first maintenance free TNAML® lighting fixtures were installed in the pipe lay tower.

The Sapura Ônix is a pipe laying vessel, part of a joint venture between SapuraKencana and Seadrill (Sapura Navegação Maritima), and will be working in Brazilian waters for deep-sea operations on behalf of Petrobras.

The choice for using the TNAML® is based the added values:

Sealed for life, IP68
Low energy consumption
Vibration resistant
Easy installation
High quality materials
84.000 hours maintenance free with 10 year operational warranty
The next phase will be to implement the TNAML® in the sister vessels of SapuraKencana. SAPURA-ÔNIX-Calandkanaal

More and more shipbuilders and ship owners are recognizing the unique TNAML® series on their tankers, bulk carriers. It does not necessarily have to be explosion proof, as the industrial (safe area) version of the TNAML® series is having the same added values as the explosion proof version.

Other maritime users of the TNAML® series are Stolt Tankers, Essberger Tankers, Wagenborg, Bernhard Schülte Shipmanagement and many more.

We congratulate RMN with this result and look forward to the next steps. For any information on the availability of the TNAML® for your purposes you can contact RMN directly at or contact us directly through
