Vancouver to install adaptive LED street light installation
Date Announced: 28 Jan 2010
-- City of Vancouver Selects Lumen IQ Technology For Canada's First Adaptive LED Street Light Installation
VANCOUVER, Canada -- Streetlight Intelligence Inc. (SLQ) is pleased to announce that the Company has received a purchase order from the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, for a Lumen IQ Adaptive Street Lighting System.
"We are particularly excited to participate in this project because our Lumen IQ monitoring and control technology will be integrated with LED-based fixtures," states Vince Krynski, CEO of SLQ.
"To our knowledge, this will be the first adaptive LED street lighting installation in Canada. As we expect LEDs to play a more prevalent role in street lighting over the next 10 years, this project presents the perfect opportunity to demonstrate the performance of our Lumen IQ technology when integrated with LED fixtures."
Comprised of 40 lamp controllers, the system is scheduled for installation in the Yaletown district of Vancouver by the end of January 2010. "The location and timing are ideal," continues Krynski. "Yaletown is one of the more popular night-life areas of Vancouver and the system will be illuminating a busy pedestrian zone located between two venues that will be used during the 2010 Olympics."
This purchase order evolved from an Expression of Interest announced by the City of Vancouver in August of 2009, where the City of Vancouver indicated it wished to explore installing decorative adaptive lighting fixtures and LED light engines. Specifically, the City of Vancouver was seeking the following capabilities:
- the ability to be remotely controlled individually, in groups, or in any combination required from the kiosk or laptop to attain the specified lighting levels;
- the ability to have light level transition times set for the lamps on pre-defined schedules;
- the ability to have the lighting output levels adjusted to reduce energy consumption during non peak hours; and
- the ability to be triggered by dawn or dusk to accommodate for localized ambient lighting.
The City of Vancouver appointed PBA Consulting Engineers to review all responses to its Expression of Interest and to recommend the appropriate technology. SLQ's Lumen IQ Adaptive Street Lighting System was selected along with Philips' Lumec LED lighting fixtures (provided by Metrolume Lighting Systems Inc.) as the two technologies that best served the city's criteria.
