AtomSvet LED lighting fixtures go underground on Russian construction site

May 13, 2014
In 2013 the Russian manufacturer of LED lighting fixtures AtomSvet LLC successfully completed a large-scale project of complete lighting modernization on SMU-1 Metrostroy working site (a part of Metrostroy group of companies). AtomSvet specialists have installed more than 400 AtomSvet® Plant LV LED luminaries on the construction site of the branch leading to Lublinsko-Dmitrovskoye depot. Complete modernization involved the replacement of existing lighting system based on LON-95 incandescent bulbs.

A prior test trial of AtomSvet luminaries on the site has shown their high quality and reliability. Test results have shown that the payback period of the new lighting fixtures is about 7 months on the site of the 1.3 km tunnel. Savings which became possible due to the modernization are about 2.5 million rubles.

The AtomSvet® Plant LV series of luminaries is specifically designed for the use at sites with complicated operating conditions. The luminaries are characterized by a long service life, minor variations of luminous flux over time, a wide range of luminous intensity curves, and high-level protection against various contaminants.

Igor Rudenok, chief power engineer of SMU-1 Metrostroy, told about complete satisfaction with implemented modernization. He noted that AtomSvet products has proved themselves in the best way during test trials, and the replacement of incandescent bulbs with LED luminaries significantly improved the illumination quality and degree on the construction site. The chief power engineer added that AtomSvet LED luminaries have shown high reliability and stable functioning in an almost 100% humidity environment. This feature is extremely important in the conditions of underground construction. “Certainly -- summarizes Igor Rudenok -- the modernization significantly reduced the lighting network service and maintenance costs, as well as provided an opportunity to ensure safety on the construction site.”
