Austria-based lighting group Zumtobel Group announced it has secured a contract with the Mongolian government for installing approximately 11,000 LED streetlights of the Thorn brand in the north of the Mongolia’s capital. Zumtobel said that the contract is in the low double-digit million euros range.
The Mongolian government aims to use light to reduce crime rate and enhance safety of the area on a sustained basis. In addition, the provision of essential infrastructure such as lighting is a key factor for attracting companies and therefore serves the overall economic upswing in the region.
“Light is an essential element to improve the standards of living in public space. We are therefore pleased to be able to contribute a little to improving safety with our lighting project and, consequently, to Mongolia’s economic development in the long term,” Alfred Felder, CEO Zumtobel Group, commented on the successful conclusion of the project.
In this project, the Zumtobel Group offers a turn-key end-to-end solution comprising not only a high-quality lighting system, but also services including project management, planning, delivery, and commissioning as well as training and regular maintenance. To date, the Zumtobel Group has not conducted any market development activities in Mongolia. A successful completion of the project will thus provide a suitable basis for any future activities in this market. (Led Inside)
