LED lighting solutions provider Schréder has announced the completion of lighting works at London Bridge station in the UK.

Last week, the station was officially reopened by the Duke of Cambridge Prince William, following transformation works worth nearly £1bn under Network Rail’s Thameslink programme.

The programme nearly doubled the passenger capacity of the station and will also help to provide more railway services.

“The SCULPflood is a slimline architectural floodlight ideal for lighting high-quality environments like London Bridge Station.”

Under the programme, Schréder, in conjunction with WSP UK, was responsible for the main platform and concourse lighting works.

The project selected Schréder’s SCULPflood due to its slimline aesthetic design and high-performance light distribution.

The company delivered 410 of its SCULP floodlights comprising 386 SCULPflood 60 luminaires and 24 SCULPdot luminaires to supply the necessary average output of 150 lux on all 15 new station platforms and central concourse.

Furthermore, every lantern is equipped with a diffuser to ensure visual comfort for the passengers and rail staff eliminating direct light glare.

Schréder UK area sales manager Ranjit Reehal said: “The SCULP luminaires play a central role in the new look of London Bridge Station by providing high-quality LED lighting for customers and significant energy savings for Network Rail.”

The new lighting system, which replaced the high-intensity discharge (HID) lanterns, is said to have low maintenance requirements, long LED lamp life, high efficiency and a lifespan of more than 100,000 hours.

WSP UK senior engineer and principal lighting designer Sacha Abizadeh said: “The regeneration project required a product that fused technical quality and aesthetic design, while providing a cost-effective, energy-efficient and eye-catching lighting solution.
