INSTALLATION NEWS SPONSORED BY Signify lights up Africa Cup of Naons 2019 with new Philips ArenaVision

Signify (formerly Philips Lighting), was selected as partner to replace the old, conventional luminaires in the stadiums with new luminaires due to its unmatched experience in stadium lighting. Also, Signify’s lighting meets the stringent broadcast standards for flicker-free Ultra-HD 4K television. “We have more than 80 years of experience in lighting sports events and are recognized as the world leader in sports illumination,” says Kees Klein Hesselink, International Key Account Manager Arena Solutions at Signify. “Through these installations, fans and television viewers around Africa and the whole world will enjoy their favorite game while soccer players on the field will get optimal visibility.”

In total 960 Philips ArenaVision luminaires were installed, ranging from 1,200 to 2,500 lux meeting the standards of the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF). The main challenge was the timing as the project had to be completed in less than three months. Signify, market leader in

Egypt, worked on the five stadiums from March till June together with one of its Egyptian partners and the governmental contractor under the supervision and cooperation of the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

“Our goal was to innovate and develop the stadium’s lighting to meet the broadcasting standards and renovating the entrance of Cairo Stadium with the latest LED façade lighting technology as well,” said Mohamed Abo El Azayem, Market Leader North East Africa at Signify. “Our successful partnership with Cairo stadium dates from 1991, and we installed the first ArenaVision LED lighting system for part of the stadium in 2016 which was the first ever in Africa.”

Today, Signify continues to build on its long legacy in the Egyptian market by providing its advanced lighting solutions to reduce energy consumption and light up beautiful iconic landmarks and renowned buildings across Egypt. First installaon of Midsummer’s new improved integrated solar cell roof

Midsummer’s new and slimmer energy producing solar cell roof, ‘Midsummer solar roofs’, have been successfully installed on a house in Kivik, in the southern part of Sweden

It is the first installation of the new roof. The roof is a beautifully folded metal roof that is integrated with Midsummer's thin film solar panels and with a high effect.

A first installation of the new and more beautiful Midsummer solar roofs has been carried out at a private customer in Kivik, in the southern part of Sweden. The new improved energy-producing metal roof has been installed at the same private customer who also installed the very first version of Midsummer's energy-producing metal roof last year. The new model solar cell roof is slimmer than the previous one, which makes the roof more aesthetically pleasing and also increases the installed power per square meter. The new Midsummer solar roofs also offer the possibility to connect the solar panels for longer roofs, which means that Midsummer can supply its metal roof with integrated solar panels in lengths of up to 12 meters.

Midsummer solar roofs are supplied with solar panels already mounted and the installation is as

simple as for a metal roof without solar cells. In order to simplify even further for the customers, Midsummer offers installation with turnkey contracts. Midsummer's light, thin and flexible solar

panels are fit to walk on and the weight does not differ significantly from a standard metal roof, nor the appearance or price.

The Midsummer solar roofs have an expected lifetime of 25 years with a guarantee of 15 years for the roof, and a guarantee that the roof delivers 90 percent of the installed peak power after ten years and 80 per cent of the installed peak power after 25 years.

Midsummer is experiencing a great interest in its newly launched solar cell roof from all over Sweden, which is the first country where it is launched. Midsummer's DUO system has taken the position as the most widespread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells in the world. Midsummer is today the world leader in the production of light, flexible, robust solar panels with high-energy efficiency. Nulty Rocks London’s Newest Iconic Hotel

Nulty is delighted to have completed the lighng scheme of London’s new Hard Rock Hotel and Hard Rock Cafe

Visitors are immediately met with a cacophony of sensory stimulation in the portal leading to the hotel lobby. A series of brass rods, pendants, mirrors, and rectangular light sheets indicate guests are leaving the old world behind and entering a space bursting with rock and roll attitude. The Nulty team co- ordinated closely with the project’s interior designer Scott Brownrigg to install 120 light sheets of various sizes and as many pendants, amongst the fractured graphics of this space.

In the main lobby, past Freddie Mercury’s first- ever piano is a wall of 18 glass cases full of impressive music memorabilia, these are lit with small adjustable spot and halo lights, creating a vibrant space of interest. Another 60 or so lit pieces of memorabilia are sprinkled amongst the hotel lobby and cafe.

By using troughs in the ceiling to house track lighting, Nulty avoided populating the vast lobby with an abundance of downlights. These troughs successfully break up the broad expanse of the

ceiling. Ramps and stairs throughout have integrated lighting installed, and as the light levels in the space can get very low, floor lighting provides safe passage without affecting the mood. The eye is drawn to the reception desks which are lit by a custom-made installation by Nulty Bespoke. Highlighting the humble drumstick, this show- stopping lighting installation consists of 135 fibre optic cables encased by handmade ‘drumsticks’ (600mm long). The maple drum sticks appear to have light emanating from their tips, suggesting that music is escaping from the drum stick itself. Each of the cables is hung at different lengths (1m at the longest), giving the overall impression that the installation represents a large sound wave. The main hub of the space is a commanding circular bar dividing the hotel from the adjacent Hard Rock Cafe. The ceiling light installation dramatically demarks the space with a series of 7m brass fins radiating from the centre. Two thousand LED nodes mounted between the the fins provide

both illumination and a type of messaging in the bar. These are all centrally controlled by staff from an iPad. Toshiba delivers outstanding indoor environment for Solent University’s new sports complex

Athletes, visitors and sta at Solent University’s new Sports Complex, part of an ongoing £100m estates development programme, will enjoy an outstanding indoor environment delivered by Toshiba’s award winning Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) air condioning

Toshiba Carrier UK Ltd (TCUK) is a joint venture between Toshiba and Carrier in the UK, and is part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

accessible to the public, a sports and exercise therapy space, and personal training and teaching gyms. Designed to achieve a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating of ‘Excellent’, the building also complies with Southampton City Council’s Strategy on Tackling and Adapting to Climate Change. The project includes a combination of Toshiba’s award-winning three-pipe heat recovery SHRMe and two-pipe SMMSe VRF systems, plus Toshiba Digital Inverter splits and applied AHU-DX combined coil systems.

Toshiba’s regional specifications manager, Val Belz, worked closely with mechanical and electrical contractor, Briggs & Forrester Engineering,


Northampton, throughout the design and delivery stage to ensure the client’s requirements were met. Requirements included long piping separation capability, low-noise operation, energy efficiency, value-for-money and proven equipment reliability. Jason Evans, mechanical design manager with Briggs & Forrester Engineering, Northampton, who headed the project, says: “Providing a high quality indoor environment is critical in such a high performance building.
