Philips Lighting has done a great job in preparing Rio de Janeiro for the summer Olympics by providing state of the art LED lighting for Porto Maravilha, Arco Metropolitano, Elevado de Joá and Museu do Amanhã.
The company installed 750 of the Philips GreenVision Xceed LEDs at the port region called Porto Maravilha. The upgrade is expected to provide up to 50 percent energy savings compared to conventional lighting. Philips also installed LED Tunnel BWP350 lighting fixtures at the two tunnels located in the same port region and the entire LED lighting system is managed by Philips CityTouch.
4,360 Philips GreenVision Xceed Solar lighting fixtures were installed at Arco Metropolitano, a highway around the Metropolitan Region of Rio de Janeiro that connects the Itaboraí region to the Itaguaí Port, and 986 Philips FlowBase LED tunnel lights and 369 Philips GreenVision Xceed lights were installed at Elevado do Joá, another highway located in the western part of the city and connecting Largo da Barra to São Conrado.
“We are excited to partner with Rio de Janeiro in preparing the city for its international visitors while at the same time providing a lasting legacy to its growing population for the years to come. The improvements LED lighting delivers, such as increased safety and reduced energy bills, are enabling the city to tackle economic, environmental and social issues at the same time,” said Yoon Young Kim, General Manager, Philips Lighting Brazil.
In the Museu do Amanhã, Philips has launched a lighting project with dynamic lighting in multiple colours that interacts with music.
