The fifth pan-African Cairo to Cape Town roadshow saw the iconic monument Kenya National Archives get a stunning light makeover from Philips Lighting using their newest LED technology.
Royal Philips showcased its latest LED lighting solutions by illuminating the Kenya National Archives in Nairobi as part of the roadshow, beautifying Nairobi CBD while providing energy savings of up to 80%, and sending out a strong message for energy efficiency.
Philips’ advanced LED lighting system will allow the Kenya National Archives to minimise light spill and direct light exactly where it is needed. The system will also simplify the maintenance schedule at the building thanks to the extended lifetime of up to 100,000 hours of the LED lights compared to only 20,000 hours provided by conventional lighting solutions.
Philips provided a complete service for the LED lighting system at the building including design consultation, management of the installation with local contractors, programming, commissioning and overall project management.
Mary Kuria, General Manager, Philips Lighting East Africa commented that the LED lights complement the architecture of the façade and masts of the iconic monument, while the energy-efficient LED lighting adds to the green credentials of the National Archives.
Nairobi is the fifth destination on Philips’ annual flagship Cairo to Cape Town Roadshow from 14th April to 3rd September 2014 across seven countries and ten cities in Africa. The roadshow focuses on two key challenges facing Africa today - the need for energy-efficient lighting and the revitalisation of African healthcare infrastructure.
Philips has committed to illuminating one iconic monument in every city visited during the roadshow with the latest LED technology.
