Lighting

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, this solution was replaced with LED lamps due to innovation and higher energy savings of LED technology.

The street lighting project was originally planned in the municipality of Berg. After Berg and the neighbouring municipality of Rohrbach were amalgamated, the renovation project covered the whole street lighting of the former municipality of Berg and a part of Rohrbach. As a result, more lighting points were renovated than initially planned and agreed upon by the municipality and ESCO (139 instead of 121). The municipality’s main aim was to save electricity and use more efficient lighting technology.
