First Highway Service Area with LED Lighting in Germany

Since some weeks travelers on highway A24 between Berlin and Hamburg, Germany will be enlightened about one hour north of Berlin. The service area on one side of the highway is shining brilliantly whereas the one on the opposite side is showing the muddy and shadowy light drivers are used to since many years. Here a pilot project is demonstrating the highly visible difference between today and tomorrow.

Germany finally is initializing a trend in Europe. With the first highway service area equipped with brilliant modern LED lighting at the A24 in Walsleben the Federal Ministry of Traffic is setting international standards. LED street lighting is the future technology – pleasing both treasurers and tax payers as they are remarkable lighter, clearly longer-lived and much more energy efficient. Security also is enhanced as dark areas and long shadows belong to the past. The pilot project in Walsleben East will prove the supremacy of LED technology.
 
In this future oriented market with high growth potential the ministry is betting on a luminous source from Germany which is technically advanced. The lamps installed in Walsleben service area have been developed in Germany, the modules (Lightengine by Lumenova) are manufactured in Esslingen, Germany, and the completed lamps are coming from 2KMoxa Lighting in Thuringia.
 
In the coming years about one third of the existing street lightings will have to be exchanged as they are technically outdated. Following the brilliant success in Walsleben the German LED development seems to be a preferred solution to enlighten streets both domestic and international.

Absolutely a great idea to use led light replacing the traditional ones. That reduced the CO2 emission and energy wasting. And that reduce the daily maintenance cost.

he LED lighting will be Trend of future. And that will be IBTs' long and lasting investment on the green technology.
IBTs have been devoting to high power LED lighting(streetlight and tunnel light) research,and overcome the bottleneck of thermal management to high power led lighting. The power range of led streetlight could be from 60W to 350W.
