LED Technology

Less than seven years ago, DHR started with the development of a LED product line of navigation lights and has extended this in 2017 with its first LED searchlight.

LEDS, also referred to as Light-emitting diodes are more energy efficient, produces less heat and can output more light. Effectively this - in most applications also reduces the weight which is becoming more and more important in the maritime market.

Overall distinctive features of DHR LED products are their extensive lifetime and increased safety as no bulb replacement is required.


Den Haan Rotterdam keeps innovating, which is very important in order to raise the bar in terms of quality standards.

As manufacturer of halogen searchlights for over 30 years it’s now time to provide LED alternatives with the same robustness and reliability for all types of vessels. With the release of the 150-, 180- & 230-series LED searchlights last year, DHR made a great step for an affordable LED alternative for smaller & inland vessels.

End of this year, DHR will present its next innovation: a pressure proof LED navigation light for naval submarines.
