First LED Stadium Lighting Installation in the DRC

BEKA Schréder is proud to have supplied the lighting solution for the first LED floodlight installation for a stadium in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The “Stade DIUR”, or Kolwezi Sports Stadium, is located in Kolwezi, which is the capital city of Lualaba Province in the south of the DRC. This LED floodlight installation will become the benchmark technology and installation for the DRC.

First LED floodlight installation in the DRCThe OMNIstar-maxi was the preferred LED luminaire due to its superior performance and high energy savings when compared to floodlights with traditional light sources. The OMNIstar-maxi LED floodlight offers all the advantages of an LED solution: low energy consumption, improved visibility with a colour temperature close to daylight, limited maintenance, longer life, and instant switch on/off, enhancing the athletic environment and minimalizing light pollution for the surrounding population. The OMNIstar-maxi has been designed to provide an unrivalled combination of performance and flexibility for lighting areas where high lumen packages are needed while offering maximum savings in energy and maintenance costs with a short payback time.

Due to the positive impact of the resultant lighting in the initial phase, the client is considering further upgrading their installation to be able to have television coverage of games.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures LED lighting products, designed and suitable for African conditions. We are very proud to be associated with Congo Energy (DRC) in providing a successful LED solution for this prestigious project.
