OBJECTIVE AND SOLUTION
| Airports Company requested proposals for LED lighting in certain sections of OR Tambo airport to reduce power usage and maintenance costs.
| Areas chosen were areas that had existing fluorescent 4x36W T8 tubes and 2x26W compact fluorescent downlighters.

| The project was completed on time and within budget.
