MILAN: The city of Milan is all set to host the Expo 2015, the Universal Exposition. The city is reinventing itself in preparation for the event with breath-taking skyline, new cycle paths, subways tunnels, and efficient lighting system.
The theme of the Expo, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, has been the main driving force behind the developments in the city. Keeping this in mind, via a tender, A2A, the service utility company that manages Milan’s electrical supply, will install 84,000 LED luminaires by February 2015 in all of Milan. AEC will light up Milan using the Italo LED street lantern which has been designed, engineered and manufactured by AEC in their state of the art facilities in Arezzo, Tuscany.
The unique optical systems and a wide range of optics enables the products to be installed in most urban applications such as residential areas, parks, squares and city centres.
Alessandro Cini, AEC CEO, said “This project represents the talent and hard work of AEC, the entire team have been instrumental in delivering this success to our business. We are proud to offer Milan a Made in Italy, energy saving LED solution. We are excited to have the eyes of the world on Milan and AEC in 2015”.
