New lighting for Nice’s historic waterfront walkway
Nice Cote d’Azur Urban Community will soon be implementing a project renovating the lighting of its celebrated walkway,the Promenade des Anglais. The Urban Community aims to reduce light pollution and increase energy efficiency while simultaneously retaining the iconic spherical lamps that form Nice’s waterfront “pearl necklace”.
A call for tenders will enable the replacement of damaged columns and lamps and improve the electrical network with the installation of new equipment and class II electrical cabinets. The Urban Community will also replace 400 W and 700W mercury lamps by 250 W metal halide lamps, leading to a reduction in energy consumption by 1.2million kWh per year and saving approximately 10 000 euros annually.
