Oman Aquarium of Mall of Muscat is the largest Middle Eastern Aquarium and lighted by Orphek LED Lighting Solutions.
Oman Aquarium is Oman’s first indoor aquarium, located at the ground and first floor of Mall of Muscat.
This amazing Middle Eastern venue offers to its public an exciting 5,600 square meter aquarium with 1,800,000 liters waters, viewed through a 9m x 7m viewing panel that weighs 30 tonnes.
The construction was developed from 2016 to 2018 under the expertise of AAT and lighted by Orphek solutions.
The main tank was lighted with various units of our Amazonas 500.
Orphek is the only company today that can provide today the perfect combination of spectrum and penetration to deep aquariums such as this one!
Suitable for extremely large areas and depths over 15 meters (50ft) and designed as a direct replacement for metal halide systems 1,000 watts , the Orphek Amazonas 500 was proudly chosen by AAT to light this gigantic tank.
The lighting challenge of this project was not only to bring a natural and healthy environment to the inhabitants of the aquarium, but also to provide enough light penetration and spread.
Not to mention that it is a venue inside a shopping mall, so recreating the natural feeling of the sea is crucial since visitors are into an immersive journey into the seas.
Based on the adventures of the famous 15th Century Arabic explorer Ahmed Bin Majid, the aquarium features aquatic creatures he encountered during his travels.
It is the home of over 200 species, 1000 types of fish and 30,000 colorful marine animals.
Visitors start their aquarium journey with the Oman desert, take in the amazing biodiversity of the Salah, and then head on an adventure under the sea.
Aquarium guests can witness nesting turtles, explore mangrove swamps and learn about the important reefs that surround Oman. And, as well as entertaining visitors, the aquarium will provide an educational experience and encourage Omanis to protect the ocean.
ORPHEK PROVIDED MANY OTHER LED LIGHTING SOLUTIONS
Public venues can also use The Atlantik/Atlantik Compact series to give the natural, health look to tanks at any shape, either placed in closed areas or canopies, such as gallery displays.
Our latest generation of the Atlantik series is the ATLANTIK iCON / ATLANTIK iCON COMPACT
Tanks displaying a wide collection of LPS and SPS corals received a natural crisp look with both Orphek Atlantik units and Orphek Atlantik Compact units.

The cylindrical reef tanks were lighted by Amazonas 960.
You will be able to see its versatility by comparing 2 different cylindrical tanks in this venue.
In this next picture Orphek this cylindrical tank is highlighted by 05 units of Amazonas 960 neatly installed over the tank.
Amazonas 960 is a great solution for venues when setting Natural ambiances and when light sources should be far from the visitors sight and still provide performance.
The main cylindrical tank is also lighted by Amazonas 960!
Suitable for extremely large areas and depths over 5 meters (16 ft) and designed as a direct replacement for metal halide systems 600 watts , the Orphek Amazonas 960 was proudly chosen to light its beautiful cylindrical reef tank.
The aquarium contains an authentic simulation of a rockwork bommie – which is an outcrop of coral reef, often resembling a column, that is higher than the surrounding platform of reef and which may be partially exposed at low tide.
Orphek Amazonas 960 versatile solution is also perfect for illuminating swim through tunnels and walk in tunnels.
An underwater tunnel aquarium provides a breathtaking experience that enables visitors to view what is above them as well as in front, giving them the feeling that they are totally immersed in the water world around them.
Orphek has researched and developed a combination of LED colors and quantity based on the needs of corals; respecting their natural response to light wavelengths; and to provide the best color pop, health and growth spectrum, while giving the reef tank the natural look, mimicking nature at its fullest.
Orphek is already the light supplier for Burj Al Arab Aquariums due to its long settled reputation in the Middle East and it was chosen as a SOLE supplier of lighting, for its ability to understand shopping mall environments and the challenges of recreating a natural look for gigantic reef aquariums.
