An adaptive street lighting system that produces satisfactory outcome
Olympia Odos is one of the most significant projects with strategic importance for the development of the Peloponnese, Western Greece, and Epirus. The motorway connects the three regions and the capital of the country with the most important gate of Greece to Europe, the port of Patras.
“Conventional lighting usually results in high energy consumption and a massive carbon footprint. The illumination is also poor with such lighting, compromising road safety and fluidity of transportation system. Plus, the maintenance is always on a higher side. We were aware of these issues and wanted to avoid them altogether for the country’s most important highway,” explained by Olympia Odos S.A., a consortium of six companies responsible for the design, construction, financing, maintenance and operation of the motorway.
With the focus on sustainability, road safety, and environment and the knowledge of the drawbacks of conventional lighting in mind, Olympia Odos searched for an effective smart street lighting solution that could produce satisfactory outcome and decided to invest, above and beyond its contractual obligations, in it.
