REGENSBURG, Germany - OSRAM Opto Semiconductors today announced that its Golden DRAGON LEDs are lighting up a major thoroughfare of Jing Jiang City in the Jiangsu province of China. The 180W prototype LED streetlights were installed by Jiangsu Hua Jing Photoelectronics for replacing traditional 250W HID lamps. Based on Hua Jing's testing, these Golden DRAGON based-street lamps can offer over 37% energy savings with improvement in night visibility.

Jiangsu Hua Jing's pilot project in Jing Jiang City is to install fourteen 8-meter-high street lights with Golden DRAGON LEDs on Fuyang Road. Nowadays, there are approximately 8000 street lights in Jing Jiang city and development zone. In China, the Ministry of Science and Technology is pushing to replace traditional incandescence lighting with energy-efficient LEDs and has set an objective of achieving RMB260 billion in energy savings by the year of 2015. Getting the new LED lamps approved in Jing Jiang will be a combined effort of the government and the local community, working closely with Jiangsu Hua Jing.

"China is leading the way with its commitment to energy efficient lighting solutions, and LEDs are increasingly recognized as the best light source to meet this commitment" said Dr. Alfred Felder, President & CEO of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Asia Ltd. "As a pioneer in LED technology, we continue to offer the very latest illumination technology, incorporating energy, cost efficiency, and increased lifetime of LED for our partners and clients."

Golden DRAGON LEDs offer excellent performance with long lifetime of up to 50,000 hours and full-color spectrum brightness. The longer service intervals attribute to LED-based street lighting by reducing maintenance costs; and the possibility of adapting the brightness to the surrounding ambient light level by using sensor can lead to further energy saving.
