Candela Co. Ltd score a victory
with new lighting for Victory Square
“We chose LEDiL because of its highest quality,
wide product range and great support team”
Pavel Tcvetkov, Deputy Director General
Saint-Petersburg Victory Square is home to the Monument to the Heroic Defenders of Leningrad, commemorating the victims and survivors of the Siege of Leningrad.
Erected in 1975 this important memorial, full of historical significance, found itself standing in a world of shadows cast by seriously outdated lighting. Using the latest optics and the lighting distribution they offer, Candela Co. Ltd stepped in to design a bright, modern solution to illuminate Victory Square as it deserves.
The project uses 7 types of LEDiL lenses: Narrow-angle VERONICA-SQ
to illuminate the lighting poles; IRIS
to highlight the obelisk; FLARE-MINI
to provide floodlit illumination of the Square’s open spaces and granite structures. The central part of the memorial is illuminated using a combination of SHELLY
lenses while LISA2-WWW
wide-angle lenses are used to illuminate the bottom of the Broken Ring memorial. Finally, SEANNA
ultra-narrow-angle lenses were installed in powerful spotlights to create visible rays converging in the sky above the obelisk.
Thanks to the new modern lighting design Victory Square is properly illuminated once again and glows brighter than ever. The lighting hardware no longer shades the beauty of possibly the most im-portant historical monuments in Saint-Petersburg.
