Craiova, one of the largest cities and most important economic centers in South-West Romania, started an extensive process of modernization of its street lighting grid. The project aims to update an aging infrastructure that today generates significant maintenance problems and increasing maintenance costs for the municipality.

Up to 20000 lamps will be replaced and upgraded to a modern street lighting system using inteliLIGHT®’s streetlight control solution. The new management system will allow real time monitoring of the entire grid and provide maintenance teams with accurate and complete information about faults, therefore increasing service quality and reducing maintenance costs.

In addition, inteliLIGHT® enables detailed street lighting control (on/off and dimming) and allows setting up custom lighting schedules depending on pedestrian and traffic density, leading to more than 20% energy savings.

The implementation process started in late 2015 and will run over the next four years, but the benefits will become obvious in the next few months, as the implementation progresses is modular and inteliLIGHT® can operated right after the first lighting segment is installed.
