Until 1999 coal was mined here but now Großräschen is being trans­formed into a port town and the gate­way to the Lusa­t­ian Lake Dis­trict. The idea of flood­ing the open pit and build­ing an urban port arose back in the days when the Meuro open-cast mine was still active.

The lake has been fill­ing up slowly since 2007 and in the mean­time a port area that is acces­si­ble via stair­cases, with moor­ings for boats, a captain’s office and a jetty for pas­sen­ger ships have arisen. The future marina will be sur­rounded by a har­bour prom­e­nade and a land­scaped tri­bune akin to an amphithe­atre with wind­ing stair­cases. Against this the­atresque back­ground, the stair­cases are illu­mi­nated by lumi­naires from the Olivio Flo­racion design line, with five Olivio Grande LED lumi­naire heads wind­ing ele­gantly up nine-metre high poles in a spiral. The result is func­tional but at the same time atmos­pheric illu­mi­na­tion of the tri­bune.

The floral design lan­guage of the lumi­naires blends in har­mo­niously with the adja­cent vine­yard slopes that have been built into the lake­side and form the only steep precipice in Bran­den­burg. The lumi­naire heads are equipped with a DALI inter­face, which can be con­trolled cen­trally using EUTRAC com­po­nents and enables the land­scaped tri­bune and selected objects in the port area to be illu­mi­nated in a punc­ti­form fash­ion both flex­i­bly and uni­formly. Fol­low­ing a flood­ing phase of more than 10 years, fill­ing of Lake Großräschen is set to be com­pleted by early 2018 at the latest, cre­at­ing an impor­tant tourist attrac­tion for the Lusa­t­ian Lake Dis­trict region.

  • The distinctive Olivio family is a modern, striking, multifunctional urban lighting system, available in three different sizes with interchangeable reflectors for street and accent lighting applications. This flexible lighting system can be equipped with optical accessories such as honeycomb and ring louvres, coloured and elongation lenses offering further effects and control. Olivio Sistema, Candelabra and Floracion poles and brackets provide total freedom of design and flexible planning.
  • Exelia is the classic solution when it comes to installing lighting equipment in close proximity to buildings. The luminaire fulfils a wide range of tasks for streetscape design, ambience creation and orientation in urban centres. The light column can serve both as a city streetlight and as a waymarker. A particular feature of the Exelia is its high grade of impact resistance with long-lasting mechanical characteristics.
