Coordination and Management of the Installation of LED Lighting in the Road Network of the Attica Region


MESOGEOS S.A. undertook, in consortium with AKTOR FM S.A. and GLOBITEL S.A., the “Maintenance and upgrade of the street lighting in the main roads of the Attica Region in order to save energy and reduce operating costs”. MES ENERGY S.A., as a subsidiary of MESOGEOS S.A. with extensive experience in energy saving applications such as LED lighting, has undertaken the Project Management and Asset Management of the project for 10 years.

The object of this contract is, first of all, the collection of data and the recording of the existing street lighting information, as well as the design and mapping of the specifications of the new street lighting system and the conduction of the necessary phototechnical study. This is followed by the supply and installation of 23,790 pieces of LED technology luminaires with a power of 150W to 1000W, which will replace the existing energy-intensive luminaires using Sodium lamps. It is worth mentioning that the existing luminaires require an annual light bulb replacement, whereas the new LED luminaires operate seamlessly for 10,000 hours, i.e. for over 20 years, thus reducing the maintenance requirements. The new luminaires are equipped with a wireless controller in order to be able to fully integrate into an IOT (internet Of Things) Management System. In addition, the supply, installation, configuration and commissioning of an IOT street lightning Management System will be realised, in order to achieve the management and control of the street lightning of the main roads of the Attica Region.

The upgrade of the lighting bodies began on Poseidonos and Kifisias Avenues. Similar works will follow in the most important avenues of Attica, such as Kifisou, Siggrou, Marathonos, Vouliagmenis, Alimou and Katechaki, as well as in the streets around the centre of Athens, such as Panepistimiou, Amalias, Vasilissis Sofias and Pireos.

Through the above interventions, an annual saving of street lighting electricity cost of at least 65% is expected in the Attica Region, corresponding to 1.5 million € per year in favor of the citizens.
