Retrofitting of the lighting along a street in a residential area (Gdansk-Pomerania)

The main objective of the project was to upgrade the technical state and energy efficiency of the street lighting system; it consisted of exchanging the sodium lighting to LED and modernising the infrastructure. The co-financing by the Regional Fund for Environmental Protection covered 45 % of the investment.




The project SOWA Nieborowska consisted of the refurbishment of the public lighting along the street Nieborowska in Gdansk (Illuminated area: 20,437 m²). The project was triggered by the willingness to improve safety and security by upgrading the street lighting. Initially it was planned to exchange the lighting to sodium lamps with lower capacity. However, ultimately, this solution was replaced with LED lamps due to innovation and higher energy savings of LED technology.
