We have supplied the LED floodlighting solution for Mont Rochelle hotel and vineyard in Franschhoek, Western Cape.
Mont Rochelle is Sir Richard Branson’s South African luxury hotel and vineyard and now joins the exclusive Virgin Limited Edition collection. Mont Rochelle is a stunning 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard just under an hour’s drive from Cape Town in the town of Franschhoek in South Africa. Franschhoek is a traditional vineyard town in the Western Cape Province famously known as the French Corner of the Cape and is considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa.

As the hotel’s Astroturf tennis court’s floodlighting has become outdated, Sir Richard Branson personally requested that the old HID floodlights are replaced with LED floodlights. We supplied the OMNISTAR-MIDI, a cost-effective and efficient lighting solution to maximise energy and maintenance cost savings. Furthermore, the gooseneck type pole was successfully converted to a conventional floodlight bracket.
The OMNISTAR-MIDI is the smaller sized floodlight in BEKA Schréder’s OMNISTAR family. The various optical solutions make it a very versatile floodlight, ensuring the correct lighting for the area to be illuminated. Various optical solutions are available to achieve the highest energy savings and the most economical lighting solution. In addition, because it has been designed and manufactured in South Africa, it takes Africa’s harsh environments and conditions into account, thereby ensuring a long lifetime.
The OMNISTAR-MIDI is impact-resistant, making it ideal for this application. Furthermore, owing to LED technology, the floodlights switch on or off instantly, eliminating the delay that we experienced with traditional lamp technology.
We locally develop and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. We are very proud to be associated with Mont Rochelle in providing a successful floodlighting solution for this project.
