Open Technology to take control of 166 year old station

23 June 2015

Open Technology has won the contract to install intelligent lighting control at Windsor and Eton Riverside station. This will be the 32nd station undertaken in partnership with South West Trains, all of which are connected to the company’s network for easy central monitoring.

Designed by renowned architect, Sir William Tite, the station was first opened in 1849. The building’s rich architectural heritage means that all upgrades must be undertaken with great care and discretion. The station is being fitted with new, bespoke LED lights that are designed to match the original copper gaslights that were installed well over a century ago.

Open Technology’s task is to ensure that each new fixture will be dimmable in order to deliver maximum energy savings while preserving the original look and feel of the station. All light switches will be replaced with sensors so that the required light levels are maintained automatically. We will also undertake automated emergency lighting testing, which will lead to further maintenance savings.
