Québec City, July, 3rd, 2013. Mr. Pierre Longtin, President and Chief Executive Officer Nyx Hemera Technologies’, has appointed Betacom Limited to market its Tunnel Lighting Addressable Control System (TLACS) in New Zealand and Australia.

Dedicated to lighting control in road tunnels, the TLACS is the most complete and technologically advanced solution on the market. Already installed in one of the longest tunnels in the world, the Kallang – Paya Lebar Expressway in Singapore, TLACS can be installed with any tunnel lighting luminaires (fluorescent, HPS, LED), and in any type and length of road tunnel.

“Even if our solution is proven and stable, we feel it is important to always have a local organisation to support our customers but also to be aware of every projects specific need. We feel that Betacom will be the perfect partner to help tunnel operators get the most of this new technology in existing or future tunnels in New Zealand and Australia” explained Mr. Longtin.

Mike Dilger, Joint Managing Director at Betacom was equally positive, saying “We’re delighted to have been awarded representation of the TLACS for New Zealand and Australia. This high-end sustainable solution that can help operators save up to 50% in energy and operational costs will be a complement to our luminaire offering for road tunnel operators.

We are convinced that engineering firms and tunnel operators will respond to these saving incentives”.
