  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the outdoor lighting for APLI’s fruit terminal in the Port of Coega in the Eastern Cape.
  • This newly constructed site combines fruit packing, cold storage and container depot activities in a single development.

Various luminaires, designed and manufactured in South Africa, were supplied to provide the outdoor lighting solution. These products were chosen for their long lifespan, high-quality materials and trust in the BEKA Schréder brand.

Internal roads

The LEDLUME-MIDI mounted on glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) poles have been installed along the internal roads.

The LEDLUME range offers optimised photometrical performance with a minimum total cost of ownership. It provides customers with the ideal tool to generate energy savings, improve lighting levels and reduce maintenance costs. The great variety of high-performance optics optimises the photometric distribution for each specific application to achieve minimum energy consumption.

The BEKAPOLE is a GRP Pole range and is used not only for its resistance to corrosion, but is preferred by architects, developers and local authorities for its aesthetic appearance, strength, ease of installation and inherent safety for road users.

Walkways and Parking Areas

The LEDPOST bollard luminaire illuminates the walkways between the main office building and the stores. With its elegant design, the LEDPOST is dedicated to lighting open areas. The distinct design shields pedestrians and drivers from glare and prevents light spill from being emitted above the horizontal. Thanks to innovative technology, the LEDPOST combines the highest precision and efficiency in a very compact bollard.

The decorative ELLEGA luminaire/pole arrangement has been installed in the VIP parking area and adds that extra touch of elegance. The ELLEGA is available in a single or double configuration at various heights. This winning combination of performance, design and flexibility enables the ELLEGA range to illuminate streets, residential areas, parks, bicycle and pedestrian paths with a better quality of light, to generate energy savings and to reduce the ecological footprint with a perfect aesthetic integration into the environment.

The ZELA LED post top, mounted on GRP poles, has been installed in the general parking area. This modern luminaire is characterised by its distinct flat and conical diffuser, made possible by incorporating LED technology. This compactness is coupled with a careful design that harmoniously integrates both functionality and finish. The ZELA emits a pleasant, low glare light, making it perfect for architectural spaces.

Container Area

The container area is illuminated with the LEDNOVA-MINI luminaire. The LEDNOVA offers optimal photometric performance and high reliability to reduce energy consumption and maintenance in all types of lighting applications. The LEDNOVA range is suitable for use in various environments, which include outdoor mining areas, food and beverage plants, manufacturing process plants and any application that requires robust and well-built luminaires. Indeed, the LEDNOVA range has been developed to reduce disability glare and thus improve the quality of light.

Loading Bays and Building Exterior

The LEDFLOOD-MIDI has been installed at the loading bays and along the exterior of the building to provide general area and security lighting.

The LEDFLOOD luminaire range has been designed for area lighting applications, ranging from car parks to large areas, whilst offering energy savings, low maintenance requirements and precise light control. The flexibility of the LensoFlex® photometric engine allows for multiple light distributions to ensure that the specific requirements of each application are met. The marine grade, high-pressure die-cast aluminium housing makes the LEDFLOOD suitable for installation in harsh environments.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. We are very proud to be associated with Eng-X and BJ Electrical in providing a successful outdoor lighting solution for this project.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
