“The intersections leading to the different sections of the mine have always been in total darkness. To make pedestrians and motorists feel safer, it was decided to illuminate these intersections,” says BEKA Schréder senior technical sales representative Quintin Etsebeth.
Owing to the isolated location of the mine, a complete electrical reticulation would have been too expensive. Thus, a solar streetlighting solution was installed.
The LEDlume-midi 36LED/55W luminaire, mounted 8 m above road level, was chosen for this project. The luminaire installations with its complementing electrical works took one month to install.
