Energy efficient lighting solution ensures comfort and safety for Sesimbra seafront in Portugal

17/09/2013, LED | Project News

As part of a revalitalisation plan to modernise the Sesimbra coast, the local authorities decided to replace the lighting to create a more welcoming nocturnal ambiance for the many tourists who visit the picturesque beaches of this town every year.

The new lighting scheme also had to reduce energy costs and allow the town to adapt the lighting levels according to events.

The Piano provided an excellent solution as it enabled the town to reduce energy costs by an impressive 74%!
Two luminaires are installed on a column to simultaneously light the beaches, paths and roads - the Piano 1 fitted with 80 LEDs is installed at a height of 8m while the Piano 1 equipped with 64 LEDs is mounted at 6m. By reducing the number of columns, the visual impact of the landscape is more striking. 

The bright white light of the LEDs provides a welcoming environment with a sense of safety.
The luminaires are fitted with the Owlet remote management system to adapt the lighting levels according to different events (weekends, holidays and festive holidays). The system also enables the local authorities to control and monitor the entire scheme.
