Icon of the Seas: Hella marine equips the first-of-its-kind vacation with lighting products


Hella marine, a subsidiary of the international automotive supplier FORVIA HELLA, has equipped Royal Caribbean International’s newest cruise ship, Icon of the Seas, with lighting products. Around 20,000 energy-efficient LED downlights illuminate the interior and exterior areas. 


The key points in short

  • Around 20,000 energy-efficient LED downlights ensure a cozy atmosphere and safety on the high seas
  • Sophisticated optical system ensures wide-angle and very homogeneous illumination 
  • Digital lighting control enables precise adjustment of the lighting in the public areas

Icon of the Seas is incredible, and their order was Hella marine's most significant order to date. We are proud that we were able to be a part of this exciting project with our products," says Ansgar Hinrichs, Global Sales Manager at Hella marine. The LED downlights from Hella marine are installed in the 2,805 rooms, the crew areas, the more than 40 restaurants, bars and lounges, the public areas such as gaming rooms and music halls, in the lobby, the corridors and on the 20 decks.

On the cruise ship, the lighting from Hella marine not only ensures safety, but also creates a feel-good atmosphere through ambient functions and lighting scenarios. A sophisticated optical system ensures wide-angle and very homogeneous illumination. The LED downlights also set new standards in terms of energy efficiency and durability. All products are approved by the DVN, the world's leading classification society for the maritime industry.

Hella marine supplied the LED downlights directly to the cabin outfitter and to the Finnish shipyard Meyer Turku, a subsidiary of Meyer Werft from Papenburg in Lower Saxony. "Our team integrated the lighting on site and made sure that the interfaces were right and that the lights could be controlled precisely," says Hinrichs. For example, digital lighting control (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface, DALI2) is being used in the public areas of the Icon of the Seas for the first time. "Our many years of good cooperation with the shipyard and Royal Caribbean were crucial to the success of the project," says Hinrichs. "On Icon of the Seas, you can now see the results of years of partnership and development."
