PONTE ROMA BOLZANO: UPGRADED, NOT REPLACED

Update instead of discard!

The Ponte Roma project in Bolzano shows ewo srl/GmbH’s true forward-thinking in terms of sustainability: Here, ten-year-old technology had come to the end of its lifecycle and needed replacing, all of which could be done with ease thanks to ewo srl/GmbH modularity.

ewo’s highly durable luminaires, designed to last decades, can be dissembled down to the last component if needed and all that was needed was a replacement of the lighting technology to fully upgrade each one.

As part of the scheduled upgrade, lighting units and drivers installed ten years ago were replaced with newer components and the latest ewo srl/GmbH-LED technology.

The majority of elements (aluminium carrier, lens and the entire holder frame) were cleaned and re-used while only two parts had to be replaced: The LED-board and the driver. This sustainable approach minimised the parts that needed to be discarded and the site was revisited in order to insert the updated parts, representing a full upgrade to the luminaires from one decade prior, giving them the effective performance of brand new products.

No new production process, no expensive shipping and no additional luminaire materials were needed.
