Murcia, a university city in southeastern Spain, is also a very popular tourist destination thanks to its sunny climate and fascinating old town of beautiful churches and museums, all in narrow streets and attractive plazas of many shapes and sizes.
Paseo del Teniente Flomesta, a wide tree-lined boulevard is a bustling spot where many students and residents go for a walk, run or simply to while away an hour in the sun.
In 2017, the local authorities decided to replace the lighting along this pavement as the existing fixtures fitted with high-pressure sodium vapour lamps were no longer providing the required lighting levels.
They wanted an energy efficient lighting solution that would increase safety and comfort at night with minimal light pollution.
They opted for the Voldue with an asymmetrical light distribution.
This compact luminaire has enabled the city to reduce energy costs by 60% while providing a crisp white light with high visual comfort for a warm nocturnal ambiance, in keeping with this city’s welcoming character.
