Welcome to Mayflower

As a market leader, Mayflower provides a 21st Century solution for the management of exterior lighting and associated illuminated equipment.

The Mayflower Complete Lighting Control Central Management System (CMS) allows full dynamic control and monitoring of each individual lighting unit using low power radio and GPRS/3G communication. Discrete infrastructure installed on lighting units receives and transmits data to the office enabling full and effective asset management.

Now, for the first time, the user can dynamically control each individual lighting unit from a laptop or mobile device.

Whether it’s new or existing lighting or signage installations, Mayflower can give you the power to take control.

In 2009, SSE Contracting purchased Mayflower outright and began development of a brand new product range – Mayflower Complete Lighting Control.

The Mayflower CMS has received Elexon approval and can now be used as an equivalent meter for measuring energy usage.

In the last few years, Mayflower has won several large contracts to supply Street Lighting PFI Projects with its remote monitoring equipment, including the South Coast, Nottingham and Knowsley PFIs. The Hampshire PFI project alone will include installation of approximately 150,000 Mayflower Nodes. Mayflower’s current installation programme is in excess of 320,000 units.

Case Studies

SSE helps Hampshire save energy

An innovative street-lighting management system has helped one of England’s largest county councils reduce its energy use, bringing significant cost and carbon savings. Mayflower Central Management System, designed to remotely manage, monitor and vary light output, has been installed to over 155,000 of Hampshire County Council’s street lights helping achieve significant financial savings and reduced CO2 emissions by around 4,000 tonnes. That’s equivalent to the CO2 emitted from around 1600 cars every year. The installation of the technology began in 2010 through the Hampshire County Council Street Lighting Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and is set to be installed to over 150,000 lights by 2015. The innovative technology will allow Hampshire County Council to better control and vary the light output…

Slough Borough Council

A major redevelopment of the “Heart of Slough” has given the Authority the opportunity to install the latest Mark 2 version of Mayflower. The major road running through Slough itself is the busy A4, which forms part of the “Heart of Slough” regeneration. The Mayflower Central Management System (CMS) provides the Authority with enhanced control over this lighting, allowing dimming and switching as well as reporting electrical faults.

Nottingham Street Lighting PFI

This Project includes the replacement of approximately 35,000 units of street lighting apparatus (the majority of which will be completed in the first 5 years) and the maintenance of approximately 42,000 units over the 25-year period. The Mayflower Central Management System is also being installed, enabling the streetlights to be monitored and controlled remotely, to report faults and to be dimmed for certain periods during the night. Nottingham City Council will realise savings in carbon emissions and energy consumption from this project. Over the 25-year period, it is anticipated that there will be a saving of approximately 54,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions and the energy consumption will be reduced by approximately 27% due to the installation of more efficient street…

Knowsley Street Lighting PFI

The Knowsley Street Lighting PFI includes the replacement of almost 12,000 columns and over 20,000 illuminated traffic signs and bollards within the first four years of the project. A sizeable reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions is predicted due to more energy efficient lighting equipment and the installation of the Mayflower Complete Lighting Control System.

Products

Sub Master

Socket 6000

Internal Node

External Node

The Mayflower Complete Lighting Control Central Management System (CMS) allows individual street lights to be monitored, switched and light output to be dynamically controlled.

This consists of three key products: the Node, the Sub Master and the Back Office System. These three products, together with a Socket which allows a Node or Sub Master to be fitted to a Lantern, communicate and provide a comprehensive system of control and monitoring.

s6000socket1As a patented socket GB2480234, the S6000 Socket (NEMA) allows either a Node or Sub Master to be fitted to a lantern. The S6000 Socket also allows for an interim photo-electric cell to be fitted if installation of the Node/Sub Master will take place after lantern installation.
