CURRENT by GE Set to Transform Intelligent Lighting in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 22, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - CURRENT, powered by GE, is set to pave the way in revolutionising smart lighting in Malaysia, by offering solutions that allows for greater efficiency and productivity. These energy efficient Roadway LED lighting, is available in Malaysia via CURRENT's master distributor, Midwest Green Sdn Bhd (Midwest Green).

Various Municipal Councils in Malaysia have started to implement the requirement of LED street lighting for new townships, and some councils are now looking to expand this territory-wide. Majlis Perbandaran Johor Bahru Tengah (MPJBT) and the State of Terengganu Councils, through its project partners are now working with Midwest Green in this conversion.

The project is expected to generate savings of more than RM60 million (ranging from 30%-50%) per project, over the period of 11 years. Along with these municipal-wide retrofit conversion projects, Midwest Green is working on five other major projects and 30 other private townships in 2017/2018 alone throughout Malaysia.

According to Jacky Shen, Asia Commercial Leader (Current Powered by GE), "There is a strong wave of transition to LED lighting currently, especially in a nation like Malaysia which is built upon roads and highways that require quality lighting. The addition of sensors and controls technologies enables LED lighting to become an all-sensing network compiling data and analytics required to drive additional productivity and efficiency. While our immediate goal in Malaysia and Southeast Asia is energy efficiency, there are long-term implications that require a holistic approach and only CURRENT possesses the assets required to achieve such high-level energy efficiency and productivity."

In implementing this system in Malaysia, Midwest Green is looking towards working with more local municipal councils in installing IoT (Internet-of-Things) ready street lights, with plans to then equip the system with the sensors needed to generate data to enhance efficiency. According to Datuk Edward Chew, Managing Director (Midwest Green), "Our ultimate goal is to be able to connect the system with other services undertaken by municipal councils such as public transportation, to deliver data intelligence and subsequently, respond accordingly in real time to enhance long-term energy savings."

"City authorities face complex and challenging choices concerning infrastructure, balancing the need to maintain existing services while investing in improvements, managing population growth and enhancing sustainability, all within tight budget constraints. The operation and maintenance of street lighting is a major cost that contributes to these challenges for local authorities. But with the technology offered by CURRENT, we are able to transform the way cities can deliver, operate and maintain public lighting in a way that can generate a wide range of benefits to the local authorities and the communities they serve."

"Currently, we are working with our project delivery partners and clients to bring LED lighting solutions to the council's vicinity. Once implemented, the new lighting system potentially offers savings of up to 45% - 70% and will also improve operational efficiencies as there is less reliance on manpower being mobilised to determine faulty or non-functioning lights. Furthermore, better-quality lighting can also bring other benefits, such as improvements in traffic safety for all road users, city attractiveness and economic strengths."
