Volgograd automobile bridge is one of the largest objects of transport infrastructure of Russian significance. The bridge belongs to the complex of road bridge structures across the Volga River and is designed to provide unloading of federal roads, transport highways of the city and access to the republics of Central Asia, the city of Astrakhan and Saratov.
On the eve of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in December 2017, the bridge was equipped with a system of architectural lighting from the IntiLED company.
Illumination of the bridge spans is carried out with the help of powerful RGBW projectors IntiSTARK and IntiLINE in the amount of 246 pieces, which alternate with 20 monochrome IntiSTARK neutral white light. The lights have three types of optics 10°, 30° and 120°, which makes it possible to create an even flood lighting of the bridge.
Managed by the protocol DMX-512, they can both create unique color-dynamic scenarios for festive events, and capture any color. For example, one of the written scenarios simulates the wave movement and the way it slaps on the coast. When creating the concept of lighting, the effect of reflecting light from the water surface was foreseen.
The total power consumption of the entire bridge lighting system is only 39 kW.
Taking into account the specificity of the object, all lighting equipment is adapted and resistant to dynamic and vibrational loads. In addition, the projector housings are made of anti-corrosion materials.
The lighting concept was developed by IntiLED in cooperation with the company Svetosila, which also delivered and installed the equipment.
