Just to create the new lighting system the power engineers used 12 poles, 24 lighting fixtures and 1 km of SIW. In addition, a street lighting control cabinet was installed at the facility, which allows to adjust light levels based on real needs. Each pole has two lighting fixtures, one of which will turn off automatically at night.
