Cape Orlando Tunnel

 

Arianna returns in Sicily to illuminate Cape Orland Tunnel (ME), located along the A20 Messina-Palermo motorway.
The requalification project of the tunnel is composed by reinforcement and permanent lighting. The first one guarantees a uniform diffused lighting and a low level of glare; the second one, instead, combine high performances and high savings thanks to the innovative features of the luminaires.
The aim of this project is to contain the costs thanks to energy savings and to make the streets safer and more comfortable.
