Sheffield Company Lights River Route to the Olympics

16th May 2012

Water bound visitors to the 2012 Olympics Greenwich Park and North Greenwich Arena are likely to find their way lit by state of the art lighting provided by Sheffield company Olmec Advanced Materials.

Transport for London is revamping and rebranding its Riverbus signage and marking the Thames river route with nautically themed banners designed to look like ships' flags. The first new sign to be lit is at the famous Black friars Bridge at Millennium Pier, where Olmec's high powered Surelight Titan Extreme LED spotlights have been used. Paul Lancaster, Olmec's managing director says; I am delighted that we have been chosen to help with such a prestigious project, and will certainly take the Riverboat if I manage to get down to London in the summer myself. Contact Paul at Olmec on 0114 236 1606 or by email at
