ROVASI luminaires chosen to renovate Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland.
ROVASI has already used its LED luminaires to help update pre-existing installations on numerous projects.
Iceland has had an energy policy in place for years that is clearly aimed at achieving an energy-sustainable future, and lighting is a key part of that project.
The country’s efforts in this regard now include the replacement of all lighting equipment at the iconic HARPA Concert Hall and Conference Centre building in the capital.
Designed by Henning Larsen Architects, Batteríið Architects and the artist Ólafur Elíasson, the centre was opened in 2011 as a green building that has always operated on a sustainable power grid (geothermal and hydroelectric). Along the same line, its director signed a Climate Declaration in 2015 setting a series of targets for 2030.
As part of that action plan, the installations have been renovated with LED technology downlights. Based on a commitment to the high efficiency and premium quality in ROVASI luminaires, the Harpa team of engineers chose the ATOMIC and SHALLOW ranges from ROVASI to meet those targets.
1,000 ROVASI luminaires have been installed in part of the 28,000 m2 of the common and transit spaces at Harpa. To maintain the original design, the chosen luminaires have a CRI>90 and a 3000K colour temperature. All the luminaires are fitted with DALI adjustment drivers that allow them to be managed and controlled for even greater energy savings.
Besides efficiency and quality, ROVASI luminaires are also known for their sustainability: made from aluminium and rigorously selected components to guarantee durability, they are fitted with replaceable COB and drivers. When the electronic components reach the end of their useful life, they can be easily replaced with LED modules or Zhaga standard drivers.
The team of professionals led by Johan Ronning, our exclusive distributors in the country, provided on-site support and made a decisive contribution to the success of the renovation project.
The renovation of building lighting systems with sustainable luminaires is, and will continue to be, essential in following the path towards an efficient and clean energy system. ROVASI is committed to achieving that goal.
