GE Lighting Illuminates London's Tower Bridge

After a major refurbishment involving GE Lighting, the stunning architectural details of London's iconic Tower Bridge will be clearly visible at night for the first time in its 118-year history.

The new lighting scheme was specifically developed to enhance the aesthetics of the bridge and ensure an energy efficient lighting scheme was in place. More than 2 km of GE Lighting's Tetra Contour architectural LED lighting has been installed on the stone and metal work on the bridge, illuminating the structure at night. Supplied in 2.44 m lengths, it takes the form of a flexible LED light engine that can be moulded on site to fit the shape of architectural features. Controls have also been installed enabling the mood of the lighting to be changed to suit different occasions.

Tower Bridge has also been installed with GE Lighting's 90W LED Floodlights, together with other lamps and fixtures as direct replacements for the old and inefficient system. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, 2012, said of the project: “This city is going to be watched by the world and this grand old lady of London, one of our best loved landmarks, is now set to play a sparkling role in the celebrations. But what's more, this is another lasting legacy for stemming from the Games which will benefit the city for decades.”
