Schneider Electric South Africa contributes to an heritage project in Soweto
Schneider Electric South Africa, with the French Embassy in South Africa, Lafarge South Africa and Total South Africa have undertaken a project to be constructed outside Kliptown, Soweto, as part of “Freedom Park”.
The project, designed by light sculptor Patrick Rimoux, consists of a series of nine lighting towers representing the nine provinces of South Africa and symbolising freedom as embodied by the Freedom Charter*.
“We pledged our support as a direct result of our belief that both the launch and the permanence of these icons of South African freedom from apartheid would communicate and reinforce our commitment to this country,” says Dudley Miller, Schneider Electric South Africa Managing Director.
Bringing together the resources of both the Embassy and French corporations such as Schneider Electric is an effort encouraged by the French community in South Africa. The lighting towers are a concept devoted to South Africa’s democratic achievement in the last 10 years.
