GE Lighting has been appointed to update the signage atop all four sides of the HSBC building in London’s Canary Wharf with its highly efficient Tetra® PowerMax LED modules.
Work at the building is scheduled to commence in November 2012 and will see the removal of the outdated signage and the installation of new 5 metre high letters and a logo spanning almost 30 metres. Both signage and logo will then be illuminated using 16,000 Tetra® PowerMax LED modules in white, 6,300 modules in red and 500 LED 0-10V dimmable drivers.
When completed, the lettering will appear black during the day and will shine bright white at night when the lighting is switched on, allowing the building to stand out amongst the high-rise skyline of Canary Wharf.
“We are delighted to have been awarded the contract for the HSBC building at Canary Wharf. Our Tetra® PowerMax LED Module is ideal for signage projects on this scale as it delivers super long life, greater energy efficiency and total reliability,” commented David Williamson, Regional Sales Manager - Western Europe for GE Lighting.
