Energy efficient LED lighting solution for N4 highway

BEKA Schréder is proud to have supplied an energy efficient LED streetlighting solution for the entire intersection of the Alzu Petroport, replacing the existing HID luminaires. The Alzu Petroport is located on the N4 highway, halfway between Middelburg and Belfast in Mpumalanga.

The primary consideration of LED street lighting is its energy efficiency when compared to HID lighting. As part of the Trans African Concessions (TRACN4) initiative to maintain the N4 highway, TRACN4 decided to replace the old HID streetlighting at the Alzu Petroport intersection, with BEKA Schréder’s high-performance LEDlume range.

The LEDlume-maxi 279W LED luminaire has replaced the 400W HID luminaires on the median, while the on- and off-ramps are illuminated by the LEDlume-midi 144W, replacing the 250W HID luminaires. All are mounted 12m above road level. An energy saving can be achieved with this retrofit project.

BEKA Schréder’s LEDlume range was chosen as it boasts unrivalled light uniformity, and the required lighting levels for Group A roads were achieved with this lighting solution.

The LEDlume range is designed and manufactured in South Africa, making it suitable for the high temperatures as found on the African continent. With its tremendous efficiency, its long lifespan and its limited maintenance requirements, the LEDlume range enables you to minimise your Total Cost of Ownership. The LEDlume family sets a new benchmark in LED lighting with performing and flexible solutions that lead to the shortest payback time.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. BEKA Schréder is proud to be associated with TRACN4 and AC Electromech Maintenance Services Middelburg in providing a successful LED lighting retrofit solution for this project.
