Schréder delivers 10,000 energy efficient LED luminaires to the City of Paris as part of its Climate and Energy Action Plan
As part of its Climate and Energy Action Plan launched in 2007, the City of Paris has committed to reducing the energy consumption for its public lighting by 30% by 2020. This city which boasts many cultural and historical sites that attract tourists from all over the world, wants a public lighting system that is as environmentally friendly as possible with losing any of the City of Light’s sparkle.
A switch to LED luminaires which consume a lot less energy was an obvious choice. The city also likes the white light provided by the LEDs as it improves the sense of safety and well-being on its streets and roads. The main axes will keep their fixtures equipped with high-pressure sodium lamps for the moment.
Evesa, the company in charge of the public lighting for the city, launched a tender as part of a first deployment phase to replace 10,000 luminaires over a 30 month period.
In addition to the energy efficiency requirements over time (maintaining the light levels at 95% for 50,000 hours), the luminaires had to meet other technical (such as the IP and IK levels) and aesthetic criteria imposed by the city. Indeed, the city of Paris is very attached to its line of lighting furniture, characterised by rounded forms.
Schréder rose to the challenge and won the tender with the CMSLume.
Named, the CMSLume, this new generation luminaire integrates the latest technologies and design concepts to ensure long term performance. As the thermal management of the LEDs is crucial for a luminaire's reliability, we separated the LED module from the control gear. This new concept will also enable the city to upgrade the LED module if they wish in future to take advantage of future technological developments.
|The CMSLume was designed with various mounting options (post-top, side-entry, suspended, catenary) to take into account the different supports in the Parisian landscape.|
