Power for the lanterns

Power for the lanterns

New sparkle for old alleyways

The French city of Besançon wants to its streets and alleyways to shine in a new light. SAG Vigilec takes on the task of modernizing the lighting network.


Within the next four years, Besancon wants to redo the complete street lighting network. Vigilec Hatier, an affiliate of SAG Vigilec, was awarded the contract for the lighting system and the distribution grid. Part of it is the construction and installation of poles and lanterns as well as the installation and setting up the control stations. In addition, overhead power lines, which previously supplied power to street lighting, will be dismantled and replaced by underground wires.

A special challenge for the team of SAG Vigilec is the simultaneous expansion of the street car network in Besancon. The work on the rail system requires continuously to interrupt power lines and to erect temporary power lines. This requires a swift and flexible response to the customer's requirements.
