Light with attitude
Light with attitude
Once on the line between, or anywhere due North, of the tower, one can see the purpose.
The huge and powerful light strikes out to sea. When placed precisely behind the Fore-light HU3779 : Gluss Isle leading light a safe line is drawn for shipping to follow to the pilot station.
Then, when a Pilot is aboard and tugs in attendance, the approach to Sullom Voe Terminal can be completed.
