ALONG the busy Muara-Tutong Highway, the major road linking the Brunei-Muara and Tutong districts, sits Brunei’s first eco-friendly petrol-filling station lit with LED lighting from Philips, the global leader in lighting.
According to a press release, the filling station is completely equipped with Philips LED luminaires, enabling up to 50 per cent savings in energy consumption and a significant reduction in maintenance costs.
“We are proud to light up the Sultanate’s first eco-friendly petro-filling station, a significant achievement towards driving green sustainability in Brunei,” said Mieke De Schepper, Philips Lighting General Manager for Singapore, Brunei and export markets. “We have been growing our presence in Brunei over the past 18 months, from the opening of our first branded retail lighting store and office, to providing solar LED lights to villagers in Mukim Sukang for brighter and safer evenings. We also conduct educational seminars to both public and private sectors to accelerate LED conversion. This new milestone represents our continued commitment to creating and transforming cities in a sustainable way, and improving people’s lives through our innovative lighting solutions.”
The new petrol-filling station’s canopy lighting uses Philips Mini 300 LED lowbay luminaires which deliver energy-efficient LED illumination. With intelligent sensors and controls, the lighting level adapts to traffic flow, illuminating fully during rush hour and dimming at low peak hours.
In addition, Philips’ Luxspace LED downlights are used in the petrol station’s convenience store, providing glare-free lighting. Completing the whole LED lighting solution, Philips Greenvision Flexi Street lighting was also installed at the petrol station’s compound illuminating the station’s exterior.
