Sandersc, the make of the ballast is BAG, you can find them at plumbstead electrical.I also have a make called Tridonic. You can buy them in single or double ballasts. I have 54w doubles and made up my own unit. I will post a pic.

Neat job, but I don't like the ballasts being inside the lid. They will corrode fast and will lead to extra heat load.

Sims, you are not the fist person to say this, but these lights have been running for two years and have not given me any trouble.
