Caland bridge - Rotterdam

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 has caused unsafe situations for road users in the past. 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.
