GE LEDs light Gulangyu Island, global project updates

    Gulangyu Island in China's Xiamen district hopes to reduce energy usage by 40% with LED lighting from GE Lighting.

GE supplied 584 LED Iberia fixtures for the Gulangyu Island project. The 90W SSL products were used to replace 150Whigh-pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures that had been installed only eight years ago. The Iberia luminaires deliver efficacy of 90 lm/W whereas the HPS fixtures delivered 50 lm/W.


    Gulangyu Island is a top ecotourism destination in Xiamen, China and both lighting projects had to have minimal impact on the natural beauty and ancient sights. "It is the common wish of the local residents and visitors that the natural beauty of Gulangyu Island will be conserved and the lives on the island be harmoniously balanced, by protecting it from the noise and pollution along urbanization," said Ye Rongnan, consultant and senior engineer of the Photovoltaic Industry Association of Fujian Province."

    But the local authorities sought lighting that could both reduce energy consumption and improve lighting. "This is an exciting opportunity for us to help sculpt the night space of a well-known tourism destination while ensuring that the solution implemented meets both environmental and use-of-space considerations," said Ye Guoliang, sales general manager of roadway and infrastructure from GE Lighting China. "This is an energy-efficient and contemporary solution that is ideal for introducing a high quality of light and greater visibility for the different spaces while promoting the general safety of the environment."

    Indeed, the new lighting is projected to deliver the equivalent of $10,000 in energy and maintenance savings annually. Guoliang added, "The GE LED solution is also easy to maintain compared to traditional lamps, and will achieve a nearly 40% reduction in energy usage for our client."

    The lighting will also minimize light pollution, making the choice of product a good match for the environmentally-sensitive residents and visitors. Rongnan said, "To respond to Gulangyu Island's eco-friendly appeal, GE's lighting solution features its asymmetrical light distribution, which concentrates the light to the pavement area, providing better lighting efficiency while reducing energy over-consumption and environment pollution."
