In Argentina, Ternium, a subsidiary of the Techint industrial group, called on Sunna Design for a project to improve lighting of the main access road to its industrial site, in order to facilitate traffic conditions.
A subsidiary of the Techint industrial group, Ternium is a steel company specializing in the production of steel products with excellence as its motto. Leader in Latin America, the company supplies customers in the areas of household appliances, automobile, construction and energy.
Located in the heart of a 600-hectare property near the city of San Nicolás de los Arroyos, Ternium wanted to improve the lighting of the main access road to its industrial site, through which a large number of trucks carrying raw materials and finished products pass everyday. This strategic stretch of road for the company had no electricity supply until now, and connecting it to the grid was both complex and expensive. Faced with this situation, the company started considering the possibility of installing solar photovoltaic street lamps.
The company first needed an efficient lighting system of 16 lux to meet the requirements of Argentina’s safety standards. Another important point was to be able to control remotely the operation of the street lamps, avoiding the need for a lifting platform to physically connect to each lighting point. Finally, Ternium was looking for street lamps with the best possible warranty.
Sunna Design’s UP4 all-in-one range of solar streetlights meets all these criteria and was therefore a natural choice. With a 6-year warranty and a unique resistance to even the most extreme climates, these street lamps represent a high-powered lighting product, which light output and uniformity meet the requirements of local standards. Sunna Design’s solar streetlights also meet Ternium’s expectations in terms of monitoring, as the customer is able to control the performance and diagnostics of the street lamps remotely, through the SunnApp.
To ensure optimal road lighting during periods of heavy trucks traffic, Sunna Design suggested to Ternium a specific lighting profile that provides a light output of 80% for four hours after sunset and two hours before sunrise. The rest of the night, the light intensity adjusts to 30%. This program provides both efficient and environmental friendly lighting, as well as a level of illumination well beyond the requirements of the national safety standards.
Sunna Design’s UP4 solar street lamps represent a significant improvement for the users of the road concerned, whose traffic conditions are now much safer and more comfortable.
The client is particularly pleased with the installation and the monitoring possibilities of the lighting products. He was also pleasantly surprised by the speed of installation of the solar streetlights and the ease of their start-up. “We also appreciated the support of Sunna Design’s teams in defining the optimal lighting profile” adds Hernán Buralli, Director of Energy Efficiency Projects at Ternium.
The adoption of solar lighting solutions is also in line with the company’s commitments in terms of environmental and energy policies.
The UP1 is a reliable and robust stand-alone solar lighting solution, particularly suitable for pedestrian, bicycle path and car park lighting. This innovative product offers a very simple and fast installation with un- matched performance and connected services such as SunnAPP.
