Switching Gears: LED Street Light for Malaysia’s future roadways



LED Street light has now began to widen its territory and being installed in several large cities as well as smaller cities throughout the world. Some of the countries that are known to be using LED Street light are United States, Canada, and United Kingdom.

According to The Engineer news, a lighting system developed by a Yorkshire company could one day replace traditional sodium street lights across the UK as Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT) claims its LED lighting system dubbed ‘e-lamp’ uses up to 75% less electricity than traditional sodium street lights and is much more efficient than other LED lights on the market.

KARAK HIGHWAY - MALAYSIA’S FIRST LED STREET LIGHTING PROJECT



  It has been reported that Malaysia’s first LED Street Lighting project is completed in early 2011 for MTD Prime Sdn Bhd from Gombak toll to Genting Sempah tunnel covering a distance of 36km. Thus, Karak Highway is the first and symbolic highway lighting project using 1,000pcs LED Street lights with a total length over 17km in Malaysia. The project was being done in November 2010 by SNFOR Sdn Bhd in association with Kingsun Optoelectronic Co. Ltd. China.

THE QUESTION IS, ARE MALAYSIA ROADWAYS READY TO UPGRADE WITH AN LED ROADWAY LIGHTING SYSTEM? 

At Comfori, we provide a workshop “Fundamental Of Led Street Lighting” to enhance Malaysian Engineers’ knowledge on the working principle of LED in street lighting, understanding the requirements in LED street lighting, understanding the effect LED street lighting on existing situation and how to evaluate on it.


Participants will be able to learn the actual case studies for better understanding on LED street lighting as well as the demonstration on simulation of lux level on computer. This workshop also demonstrate a well-proven approach used in selecting efficient and effective street lighting system.
