Lumileds’ LUXEON LEDs light up Guangzhou TV Tower

LED maker Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA says that the Canton Tower (also known as the Guangzhou TV tower) is one of the recent projects in Guangzhou, China that has used its LUXEON LEDs — in this case more than 330,000 emitters — to bring a unique and distinctive landmark to life.

Also acclaimed as ‘Slender Waist’, the 610m-high Canton Tower is the world’s highest stand-alone TV tower. It relies on its LED lighting solution from Philips to integrate regular lighting with festival lighting to meet the overall night-view plan of the Guangzhou government and enhance the urban image of Guangzhou as an international metropolis. The colorful, dynamic and vivid visual effect of the tower is made possible by more than 6000 LED luminaires from Philips using just 500kW of power.

Recently, more than 700,000 LUXEON LEDs were also used to illuminate the banks of the Pearl River in Guangzhou. Lumileds has also supplied its LUXEON white LEDs for projects including the street lighting on Liao Ning Avenue in the Si Chuan Province, the Guangzhou Opera Hall, and the Liu Wu Tunnel Lighting in Anhui Province, China.

Lumileds says that its LUXEON LED portfolio offers application performance that makes it easier for luminaire designers, architects and specifiers to create and select new solutions with confidence and certainty that the LEDs will deliver the desired light output, efficacy and color quality. LUXEON LEDs are already widely used in shops, on roadways, in hotels and restaurants, offices and homes.
