The Nhật Tân Bridge has been unveiled as the new sparkle for Hanoi’s skyline, with its new LED lighting system by Philips.
Philips Lighting announced the completion of Hanoi’s latest luminous landmark, the Nhật Tân Bridge. The global leader in lighting partnered with the leading Vietnamese construction company, the Sun Group, to turn the structure into an ever-changing work of art.
“Now, all who cross Hanoi’s Red River are met with the Nhật Tân Bridge’s five colorful spans, which symbolize the five ancient gates to this capital city,” said Philips Lighting. “Like most of the world’s tourist-destination cities, Hanoi is in the process of becoming an even smarter, more sustainable city.”
According to the news release, the new architectural lighting system bathes the bridge in a prism of colors and illuminates the five majestic spans, along with the cables that run high above the bridge. Further, it supports Hanoi’s sustainability goals because the new long-life LED system may deliver up to 75 percent energy savings, as well as saving on operation and maintenance costs.
The famous landmark was lit with Philips Color Kinetics, which can create a staggering 16.7 million different colors, enabling the bridge to be lit in special colors to commemorate events and holidays.
