           Dialight secures major order from US rig owner/operator





Dialight  (LSE:  DIA.L),  the  innovative   global  leader  in  LED   lighting 
technology, today announces that it has secured an order to provide 1,224  LED 
lighting fixtures, with a total contract value of approximately $850,000, to a
major US rig  owner and operator  for use on  eight newly constructed  onshore 
drilling rigs.



The Texas-based customer, who has in excess  of 1,000 land rigs in its  fleet, 
along with  platform  and  barge  rigs,  has  placed  the  order  following  a 
successful trial of Dialight's LED light fixtures.



This contract represents Dialight's  first large rig order  and consists of  a 
combination of Class I, Div  1 and Class II, Div  2 fixtures, along with  the 
associated mounting  bracket accessories.  As  the industry's  only  certified 
provider of these  particular type of  Class I, Div  1 products, Dialight  was 
uniquely placed to offer the customer a tailored lighting solution appropriate
for hazardous environments.



Roy Burton, Dialight's Group Chief Executive, said:



"We believe that this order  is just the beginning of  what we see as a  major 
growth area for our LED fixtures. We are rapidly expanding our operations  and 
sales forces in regions  such as Brazil, Eastern  Europe, the Middle East  and 
South-East Asia, among others, to take advantage of the opportunity in the oil
& gas market. There are a huge  number of drilling rigs around the world  with 
the potential for  integrating LED lighting  suitable for hazardous  locations 
and Dialight is particularly  well-positioned to service  that market. We  are 
looking forward to securing more contracts  of this nature in the future,  for 
both new and serviced  existing rigs, as the  industry continues to  recognise 
the considerable value proposition of LED lighting."
