The Caland bridge

The Caland bridge is a steel lift bridge that is part of the Betuwe

route and forms a strategic connection between the Botlek and the

German Ruhrgebied. The old lighting equipment constantly broke

down due to the intensive and heavy road/rail freight traffic and the

strong wind. This caused unsafe situations for road users.

Besides this, maintenance of the lighting equipment was highly

disruptive and very costly.

In early 2008, QL induction lighting systems were installed on the

Caland bridge, housed in IMT’s 165W Helios luminaires (heaviest

model of IQL luminaires). After the installation everything keeps

functioning and this enable to guarantee the safety on the Caland

bridge even better.
