“This is the first time that Plasma lights have been commercially employed in Singapore. Plasma lamps are an extremely energy efficient electrode-less lighting source powered by radio frequencies.”
Thanks to a donation from some old boys, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent)’s rugby team can continue to hone their skills even after dusk.
Previously, due to the lack of lighting at night, students were unable to train when the sun went down at the ACS (I) rugby field.
The school’s employment of cutting edge lighting technology – fifteen 1000W Plasma floodlights by green solutions company IEQ Global Pte Ltd – has enabled the efficient illumination of the field, allowing it to be fully utilised all day and night.
A project gamely sponsored by a team of old boys, this green effort to give back to their alma mater has allowed ACS (I) to be environmentally sustainable while still allowing the school teams to train to their fullest potential.
This is the first time that Plasma lights have been commercially employed in Singapore. Plasma lamps are an extremely energy efficient electrode-less lighting source powered by radio frequencies. They use a significantly smaller light source than conventional lighting technologies, producing an extremely long and bright light throw. Given its high colour rendering index, they also produce near natural daylight.
“When we were first approached to light the school field, we reviewed several leading edge lighting technologies. Plasma lighting immediately came to mind as its long and bright light throw makes it an ideal lighting solution for a school field. With a long lifespan, more than double that of conventional metal halide lamps, it reduces re-lamping and maintenance costs.
It also enables significant electricity savings, with fifteen 1000W Plasma lamps illuminating the field, comparable to a conventional option of forty 1000W metal halide lamps,” said Mr Ong Wei Ping, Executive Director of IEQ Global.
“Given its ultra long light throw, Plasma lamps are also able to utilise existing building structures, rendering additional erection of poles for the mounting of additional lighting unnecessary. This also contributes to reduced maintenance costs with lighting locations now easily accessible. We watched the ACS boys train and the lighting was literally ‘pitch perfect’,” added Mr Ong Wei Ping.
The feedback from the coaches and students has been very positive,” adds Ms Wei Loh, Senior Marketing Executive at IEQ Global.
IEQ Global works with two leading plasma technology parts vendors to develop lighting applications for use in Singapore and across Southeast Asia. Plasma lighting has also been used to illuminate a façade of the 10-storey building façade of Dorsett Singapore, the first hotel in Southeast Asia to use Plasma lighting.

Given rising energy costs and improvements in technology, LED lighting has become an increasingly attractive option for new buildings
“LED lights are more energy-efficient because most of the power going into them is converted into light.”
AS the use of energy-efficient lights becomes more widespread, new hospitality player Dorsett Hotel and Residences stakes its claim to being South-east Asia’s first new-built hotel with more than 95 per cent LED lights.
Much has been said about the advantages these energy-efficient lights offer over conventional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen ones, but property developers with an eye on the bottom line baulk at the high upfront costs of installing them, convinced that their costs outweigh their long-term benefits.
But LED lighting has become an increasingly attractive option for new buildings, given rising energy costs and improvements in LED technology, which have made them cheaper.

“LED lasts up to 5 times longer than standard incandescent lighting. In addition, with a high colour rendering index, LED lights produce better quality lighting.”
Light Emitting Diode, or more commonly known as LED, is touted as the Mr Fix It of the lighting industry. They do dozens of different jobs and are found in all kinds of devices that are essential for modern everyday life. For instance, they form numbers on digital clocks, light up watches and of course, provide lighting in offices, commercial buildings and homes.
Despite its prevalence, LED lights are still environmentally friendly, making them a good option in and around the house.
IEQ Global is proud to announce that our Induction, LED and Plasma lamps have been approved by the Malaysian Green Building Confederation as energy efficient lights for Green Building Index (GBI) purposes. Listed on the Green Pages Malaysia, IEQ Global’s lighting products can now be used to achieve GBI ratings.
Created by the Malaysian Green Building Confederation, the GBI is the only green rating tool for the tropical zone other than Singapore’s GREENMARK Certification.
