Aura Sodinette Long Life in the municipality of Sollefteå

 

The municipality of Sollefteå in Sweden has chosen Aura Sodinette Long Life. „“The long service life of the lamps is a must for keeping costs down. The long lifetime also means our contractors are not exposed to hazardous conditions quite as often“.

 

 

Sollefteå Municipality in Sweden, with an area of 5,500 km², has a population of just over 21,000. Not quite half the population live in the urban area of Sollefteå itself. The municipality has several other urban areas, and Långsele, Näsåker, Ramsele and Junsele are some of the largest. In total, the municipality plan to change approximately 6,500 lighting points to Aura Long Life, both in the urban areas and in the rural areas over the next few years.

Financial advantages with Aura Long Life

Anders Bäckman at Sollefteå Municipality explains why they chose Aura Long Life. „There will be financial advantages for the municipality, as the intervals between lamp replacements will be longer with Aura Long Life. What’s more, the Swedish Road Administration requires us to use TMA protection (Truck Mounted Attenuator) on all roads with a 70 km/h speed limit. The TMA attaches to a large truck driven behind the workers to protect them from other road users. Such vehicles are very expensive to hire, so we try to keep their use to a minimum.“

Fewer risky changes with Aura Sodinette Long Life

Aura Sodinette Long Life is specially designed for street lighting. Anders Bäckman tells us about the benefits. „The long service life of the lamps is a must for keeping costs down. The long lifetime also means our contractors are not exposed to hazardous conditions quite as often. We thought that both the lamp and its service life time seemed very good.“
