ProRail is responsible for the construction, maintenance and management of the Dutch rail network, including all relevant facilities such as tunnels, overpasses and stations. The organisation aims to provide a safer, more reliable and sustainable rail network.
In 2017, it upgraded the lighting in the railway yards of its freight train stations to LED technology to reduce its operating costs and ecological footprint.
A sustainable approach
They chose the OMNISTAR to replace the lighting in the railway yards of Arnhem, Heerlen, Hengelo, Onnen and Roosendaal.
The OMNISTAR is ideal as it offers a real alternative to luminaires equipped with high-power traditional light sources, with the added advantages of an LED solution: low energy consumption, improved visibility with a colour temperature close to daylight, limited maintenance and longer life.
Smart lighting system
The new lighting will enable ProRail to significantly reduce energy and maintenance costs.
In addition, all of the luminaires are equipped with detection sensors and managed by a control system so that they only work when movement is detected, for example, when an employee arrives to take a train out.
The result is a safe, user-friendly, comfortable and sustainable environment that enables staff to do their job efficiently.
