Sir Seretse Khama International Airport

LED lighting enhance safety for all while reducing the airport’s operating costs

Sir Seretse Khama International Airport is located about 10 km north of the city of Gaborone in Botswana. This airport offers large capacity to handle regional and international traffic and has the largest passenger movement in the country.

We supplied the LED retrofit lighting solution for the various areas in the airport which have been upgraded from HID to LED, with the purpose of saving on energy consumption. 


Lighting creates perfect visibility for apron & parking areas  

The apron and parking area lighting has been upgraded to a high-quality LED lighting solution with the South-African manufactured OMNISTAR-MAXI floodlight. 

This luminaire provides an unrivalled combination of performance and flexibility for lighting the apron and parking areas where high lumen packages are needed while offering maximum savings in energy and maintenance costs with a short payback time. Six of these modular luminaires are installed on a high mast to provide the lighting needed to meet the specifications of the areas to be lit. With on-site commissioning, we could guarantee the perfect lighting to ensure safety and comfort for employees and visitors. 

This LED solution provides the following added advantages compared to luminaires equipped with high-power traditional sources:  

  • low energy consumption,  
  • improved visibility with white light,  
  • limited maintenance,
  • low glare,
  • and longer life. 


LEDFLOOD provides a comfortable workshop area  

The workshop area is illuminated by the LEDFLOOD-MIDI luminaires. Research has shown that light plays a major role in employee well-being, satisfaction and retention in any workplace. Poor lighting, especially yellow or orange light from traditional discharge lamps can cause eyestrain, blurred vision and headaches. This can result in a significant cost to the business in the form of time of injuries, absenteeism and reduced productivity. 

Well-illuminated, glare-free LED lighting can make employees more alert and improve concentration levels, which leads to happier, safer employees and fewer incidents

This South-African designed and manufactured LEDFLOOD range is suitable for this large area lighting applications as it provides a fast return on investment, whilst offering  

  • energy savings,  
  • low maintenance requirements,  
  • and precise light control. 

The flexibility of the LensoFlex® photometric engine allows for multiple light distributions to ensure that the specific requirements of each application are met. In addition, the option for varying the number of LEDs of the floodlight allows for a precise adaptation of the workshop to be lit, thereby ensuring optimal lighting levels and energy savings. 


Energy-efficient luminaires for internal roads  

The old internal HID streetlighting has been replaced with energy-efficient LEDLUME-MINI LED streetlights which are designed and manufactured in South Africa. 

The LEDLUME range offers optimised photometrical performance for the internal roads and furthermore provides a minimum total cost of ownership. It provides the customer with the ideal tool to generate: 

  • energy savings,  
  • improve lighting levels  
  • and reduce maintenance costs.  

The great variety of high-performance optics optimises the photometric distribution for each specific application to achieve minimum energy consumption. 

The LEDLUME range offers flexible combinations of LED modules, a choice of currents and dimming options to further maximise energy savings and provide the most cost-effective solution. 


Exterior downlights for corridors 

The BEKARONDO LED downlight luminaire is installed in the corridors in the Arrivals section of the airport. This circular aluminium reflector LED downlight has been designed for decorative lighting applications for modern or hi-tech environments, including when high light output is required. 


By switching to LED luminaires, the airport not only reduced power consumption significantly but it improved the quality of light on its premises by providing a brighter white light that enhances visibility.

We are very proud to be associated with Botswana-based electrical contractor BPG Switchboards in providing a successful LED retrofit lighting solution for this project.
