Customer challenge

 

The newly unveiled Dragon Bridge in Da Nang needed spectacular lighting in order to carry its iconic status into the night. As a strong advocate for sustainability, the city council sought an energy-efficient way to light this mythological monument.

The right lighting 

 

The new Dragon Bridge is helping Da Nang wing its way to prosperity, enabling easy movement between the city airport and other import locales. Extensive lighting was needed in order to brightly illuminate the dragon and maintain clear vision for motorists. However, measuring 666 meters long with six lanes, the large amount of fixtures needed could have potentially been a huge energy drain for the city.

LED technology was the answer. The versatile positioning of ColorBurst PowerCore and powerful floodlighting of ColorBurst Reach now illuminate the dragon with dramatic effect. The form of the sculpture has been adorned with an inspiring interplay of light and shade, which is visible from miles away. Additionally, Vaya Linear lights were installed along the sides of the bridge, adding eye-catching sparkle.

On top of these aesthetic achievements, the council’s sustainability goals were achieved. The long-lasting lifetime of the fixtures and low energy consumption mean the city will spend less on maintenance than they would with traditional lighting. The flexible controls also mean that colors can be changed easily for holidays and festivals, adding even more value to the structure.


The eyecatching design of this lighting solution clearly postions the Dragon Bridge as a gateway for Vietnam and the rest of the world to the city of Da Nang.
