Expo 2010 in China – greener with OSRAM

Munich, Germany | Posted on April 23rd, 2010

As the official global lighting partner of Expo 2010 in Shanghai, OSRAM is providing green technology for more than 40 projects along with its parent company Siemens. OSRAM's energy-saving solutions will show the buildings' interiors as well as streets, pathways and tourist sights in the best light. Highlights include the China Pavilion, Expo Centre and the "We are the world" pavilion. „With more than 150,000 LED OSRAM illuminates the pavilions and boulevards on the Expo area and demonstrates once more that climate protection and aesthetically appealing lighting go hand in hand", explains Martin Goetzeler, CEO of OSRAM.

The China Pavilion is one of the permanent buildings at Expo 2010. Based on the shape of an Oriental crown, the building's colour is mainly "China red", which gets its name from the Forbidden City (Gu Gong) in Beijing. In order to stage the 30-metre high, 160,000 square metre pavilion and its traditional Chinese features at night, OSRAM relies on over 23,000 Golden Dragon Plus LED, which emit their light over a distance of 66 metres. OSRAM worked on the exact mixture of LED light in Gugong red for six months. The advantage of LED is that they save more than 70 percent of the energy consumed by conventional halogen halide floodlights. With an operating life of 50,000 hours, LED also significantly reduce maintenance requirements and the cost of replacing lamps, which means greater sustainability, is achieved here too.

World Expo Centre: forum for technology and science
The Expo Centre - 350 metres long and 140 metres wide - covers an area of 142,000 square metres and is one of the few buildings that will still be standing after the Expo. During the Expo the centre is used for ceremonies, press conferences and events. The centre's lighting design is based on OSRAM's intelligent digital DALI lighting management system. This system provides more energy efficiency, environmental friendliness and flexibility, as light is dimmed, for example, using electronic control gear or is switched on only when needed.

By integrating fluorescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps, in combination with energy-efficient electronic control gears, OSRAM achieves energy savings of up to 25 percent compared with conventional lighting solutions. The dynamic dimming effects of OSRAM's Linearlight LED modules that are also used provide the ideal ambience in the Expo Centre for presenting science and technology.

Overall, with the lighting solutions used at the Expo Centre, OSRAM can save up to 33 percent of the energy.

Unlimited creative possibilities with OLED and LED
In the "We are the world" pavilion OSRAM demonstrates the possibilities that organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) offer in terms of design and energy efficiency. In a domestic situation, rows of Orbeos OLED panels form the frame of a mirror. The ultra-flat surface lights are not only visually appealing but also provide pleasantly diffuse lighting. With this installation, OSRAM proves that OLED already play a role in high quality general lighting. In future, architects, lighting planners and designers will have far more options - ceilings or partition walls of light will be feasible. Plus, virtually any object can become a luminaire with OLED.

The pavilion will be illuminated by the OSRAM joint venture Traxon Technologies. The 5 sphere concept design of the pavilion features color changing animations created by 1,180 pieces of Traxon's advanced Nano Liner, an ultra bright though environmental friendly LED lighting solution. Equipped with sophisticated control programming software from Traxon's control brand - e:cue lighting control, the eyecatching lighting effect delivers a world-class dynamic Solid-State Lighting experience to every World Expo visitor. A virtual "window" and a virtual "sky" at the entrance tunnel, powered by Traxon's LED panels, simulate various weather scenarios and times of day.
