The Guinness world record for the most people generating electricity in 24 hours in multiple locations is 11,461 and was achieved by AEON RETAIL Co., Ltd at 10 locations across Japan.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest torchlight; it measures 400 cm (13 ft 1 in) long and 96 cm (3 ft 1 in) in diameter and was created by Zweibrüder Optoelectronics GmbH & Co. KG (Germany). It was presented and measured in Solingen, Germany.
The World's Largest Image Made from LEDs was built across an area of approximately 750,000m² and contained 1,012,840 LED lights, smashing the previous Guinness world record, which was set in Holland in 2010 and stood at 50,010 LED lights.
The light image was created as part of the naming ceremony for OLTIN YO'L GTL in order to visualise the scale of the project on-site. The the entire project was completed in just under three weeks.
The light picture took six days to build and needed twenty four kilometres of lighting as well as fourteen kilometres of power cables.
It also needed 302 kilowatts of power which was drawn from three generators, a railway station and the Shurtan Gas and Chemicals Complex (SGCC).
The project team included OLTIN YO'L GTL, TOShShAHARNUR, the Tashkent municipal lighting company which provided and installed the lights, and Malcolm Wells, Director of Malwell Corporate Projects, who has a long track record of managing GTL promotions, including the GTL Challenge and the Bryan Habana cheetah race.
OLTIN YO'L GTL will be one of the most advanced energy plants in the world, producing high quality fuels and other products which will improve air quality, deliver a cleaner transport future and support growth and development.
The technology used is similar to that of the pioneering ORYX GTL plant in Qatar.
