more than 4,000 lamps have been replaced
”Lamps have been replaced in all parts of the city where old mercury-vapor lamps were used, mostly in suburban neighbourhoods and surrounding villages. In line with the contract we signed in late January 2018, we will replace another 2,000 lamps,” Mayor of Kraljevo Predrag Terzić explained.
Mr. Terzić also expressed his satisfaction over hosting some of the stakeholders in the project. As he pointed out, of the 9,000 old environmentally unsafe bulbs consuming a lot of electricity in the city of Kraljevo, more than 4,000 lamps have been replaced over the past year. "Lamps were replaced in all parts of the city where old mercury-vapor lamps were used, mostly in suburban neighbourhoods and surrounding villages. In line with the contract we signed in late January 2018, we will replace another 2,000 lamps. When we complete the replacement of these bulbs, install new cabinets and construct a monitoring and control system that will prevent unauthorized use of electricity from the public lighting system, we will have the full capacity to save power, and can completely recover the cost of the investment in just a few years. The fixtures we purchased have a 10-year warranty, which allows us not only to cover the costs of the project, but also to save extra money and protect the environment," explained Terzić.
Slovenian Minister of Economy Zdravko Počivalšek said that it was a great honour and pleasure to attend the promotion of the project in Kraljevo, since Slovenia was involved in it.
"I am particularly proud of the high level of political and economic cooperation, which is getting even better with time. Projects similar to the one in Kraljevo promote good economic cooperation between our two countries.
