  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the LED streetlighting solution for the N2/M3 intersection at Hospital Bend, Cape Town in the Western Cape Province.
  • This forms part of the City of Cape Town’s LED streetlight retrofit programme.

As part of the City of Cape Town’s ongoing Energy Efficiency Programme, the old HID streetlight installation was retrofitted with BEKA Schréder’s LEDlume-maxi. The new installation provides an energy saving of more than 50% without compromising the required lighting levels.

The LEDlume-maxi is the largest of the LEDlume family, a high-performance LED streetlighting range that has been designed and manufactured in South Africa, thus taking the continent’s harsh thermal and corrosive environments into account. 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 LEDlume range offers flexible combinations of LED modules, a choice of currents and dimming options to further maximise energy savings and provide the most cost-effective solution.

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 City of Cape Town Energy and Climate Change Directorate in providing a successful energy-efficient streetlighting 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.
