Even Fishing Crews and Lakes Can Benefit from LED Environmental Savings

A new smokeless lighting technology that is set to replace pressure lamps used by Omena (sardines) fishermen in the 400 million-year old Lake Victoria is now available in Kenya.

Besides being handy for use, LED lighting technology is brighter than pressure lamps and is free from paraffin spillage that has dogged the lake for many years.

Unlike before when fishermen used over five pressure lamps to catch plenty of fish,  new technology now enables them to use only one source of lighting. 

Supplied by Osram Energy Hub, a German based firm, the rechargeable lamps are expected to cut paraffin spillage into the lake by 100 percent once adopted by all fishermen.

The move is expected to protect the aquatic life of more than 500 endemic fish species. Other low power devices such as radios and mobile phones can also be connected this battery box and recharged.

The firm also has complete luminaries such as the Osram O- lamp 2 in 1 which comprises an energy saving lamp that has an integrated battery that is recharged or exchanged at the Hub as a separate unit. 

The firm is collaborating with solarworld AG and the cell phone manufacturer Nokia and plans to cooperate with Siemens to provide water treatment systems after the pilot trial.
