Solar Street Lights Installed at the Onslow Marine Support Base, Western Australia.

Onslow OMSB project

Onslow, Western Australia – Maritime Constructions install GFS-400 solar street lights on latest infrastructure development, a $40 million Marine Support Base constructed at Onslow, Western Australia.

The development features a 204m main hard backed wharf, large laydown facilities, dual landing craft transport ramps, fuel supply, and also includes a heavy lift pad capable of accommodating a 700-tonne crane. The privately funded project will be developed into a service hub for vessels operating throughout Western Australia’s offshore oil and gas fields.

Green Frog Systems supplied eleven GFS-400 solar street lights, offering superior light coverage and a 100% off grid energy solution allowing the site owners to completely avoid the ongoing energy supply charges of mains powered flood lighting around the perimeter. The specified solar street light supplied was specifically designed to withstand the exceptionally tough Australian weather and seasonal cyclone conditions that Onslow is subject to.

Installation times were greatly reduced, as the system did not require extensive trenching and mains power connection.


Founded in 2011, Green Frog Systems have quickly established themselves as the leading Australian designer and manufacturer of world-class road and pathway lighting, energy storage and smart connected lighting networks for extreme environments. They service clients across a wide range of industries from all over the world providing innovative lighting solutions for government, mining, industrial and commercial infrastructure.

City of Karratha has announced that it has selected Green Frog Systems to supply 77 cyclone rated solar street lights for the Karratha Walkways Lighting Project. The aim is to provide residents with illumination along pedestrian walking pathways and streets throughout the township. Suburbs to have solar street lights installed are Pegs Creek, Nickol, Bulgarra, and Millars Well.

After a rigorous tender selection process, our GFS-200 Solar Street Light was deemed the best choice, offering class leading technology and proven durability. The township of Karratha is located in a region of some of the highest cyclonic winds in the nation – ‘Wind Speed Region D, importance level 2’. The GFS-200 has been engineered for this region and able to withstand wind speeds up to 262kph. It is the leading product of choice for Governments and corporations ideally suited to Northern Australia and remote island communities.

According to the Australian Street Lighting Strategy, street lighting is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from local government.  Nationally, the annual cost of public lighting in Australia exceeds $250 million and the greenhouse gas emissions account for between 30-60% of local government’s greenhouse gas emissions (*City of Ipswitch 2015). These statistics coupled with growing demands for public services including lighting are just some of the driving factors for the project with grid connected lighting infrastructure being an overly costly option throughout the region. The geographical location of Karratha Township makes it an ideal candidate for solar lighting as they receive on average over 150 day per year of sunshine.

The project is set to commence mid 2017 and is set for completion within the second half of the year.
