Matinsa and FCC Industrial have won the contract to renew the lighting of the Folgoso Tunnel on the Rías Baixas Highway (A-52) (Pontevedra). The objective of the action is to improve the lighting installations of the Folgoso Tunnel, in accordance with the provisions of the Energy Efficiency Strategy of the State Highway Network.
This strategy, which aims to reduce energy consumption by 50% between 2022 and 2028, contemplates acting on lighting in tunnels and open-air sections, where intelligent lighting management systems will be implemented and the change of lighting will be promoted. high pressure sodium vapor luminaires using LED technology. Specifically, for the Folgoso tunnel, located between kilometer points 277.6 and 281.9 of the A-52 highway in the municipality of A Cañiza (Pontevedra), the replacement of the current luminaires that constitute the lighting is contemplated. permanent and reinforcement, the signaling, the evacuation galleries, the technical premises and the Control Center, with LED technology luminaires, maintaining the same position as the current ones.
