  • BEKA Schréder is proud to have supplied the area solar lighting solution for Hermanus Harbour.
  • Hermanus is a town on the southern coast of the Western Cape province of South Africa, and is famous for whale watching, and is a popular retirement location.

The lighting solution consisted of the BEKA SOLAR, which was chosen due to its high-quality materials – a criteria which was especially important due to the high-corrosive environment in which the luminaires are installed – and their cost-effectiveness.

Since it would have been a challenge to get power to site, a solar lighting solution just made sense! BEKA Schréder’s LED solar lighting solution, the BEKA SOLAR, has been installed along a side road that leads through the industrial park towards the harbour. Combined with the ZIYA-E luminaire, the BEKA SOLAR provides a reliable lighting solution with a high Ingress Protection level that withstands high ambient temperatures and vandalism. The BEKA SOLAR has been designed and manufactured in South Africa and has been specifically engineered for all geographical locations in Africa. It has sufficient autonomy to cater for up to four continuous overcast or rainy days, to continue its reliable night operation. Various battery technologies available to meet specific requirements.

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 Blu-Vine Technology and CSM Consultants in providing a successful area 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.
