Azerbaijan switches to energy-efficient road hardware

Azerbaijan, Baku, 10 May / Trend I.Khalilova /

Azerbaijani Transport Ministry is planning to switch to the new LED traffic light system which will initially be set at two intersections in Baku and Sumgait. This will save energy and reduce operating costs for the maintenance of various technical areas such as vehicle and pedestrian.

According to the proposal submitted by Telemekhanika JSC (Kabardino-Balkar Republic of the Russian Federation) to the Azerbaijan Foundation for Export and Investment Promotion (AZPROMO) on the establishment of cooperation with Azerbaijan, talks were held on the implementation of a pilot project jointly with the Ministry of Transport in conjunction and technical services of Azerbaijan.

'The project includes installation of a set of traffic lights and other technical means of production from Telemekhanika JSC at two intersections in Baku and Sumgait, including one set of hardware units powered by 220 volt and one set powered by 12 volts from alternative sources namely solar panels produced in Azerbaijan ', AZPROMO's statement published on its website said.

The Russian company is offering Azerbaijan the supply of LED traffic lights, traffic controllers and energy-saving lighting technology such as modular LED lamps for lighting roads, streets, bridges, industrial buildings and housing facilities.

The first LED traffic lights with additional background lighting support structures were installed by the ministry at the intersection of Uzeyir Hajibayli Street with Pushkin Street, near the Government House.

The difference between these traffic lights from those currently in use is that they are much more visible at both daytime and night time and provide safe passage at the intersection. In addition, an overview of these traffic lights cannot be closed either by buses, nor trucks.
The use of new LED traffic lights and LED light blocks to replace the optical system of traffic lights with incandescent lamps can significantly reduce energy consumption and operating costs for the maintenance of traffic lights as well as improve road safety.

Advantages of LED traffic lights is the low power consumption and 10 times an increased lifetime as well as high operational reliability (MTBF of 50,000 hours, whereas incandescent lamps are designed for up to 2000 hours) as well as the exclusion of false traffic lights as a result of the reflection of sunlight due to the lack of colour filters and high mechanical strength through the use of modern materials.
