Lighting Europe's largest solar filling station

Sortimo, specialists for in-vehicle equipment, have recently built Europe's most innovative and largest charging park, with 72 charging stations in the first stage of expansion, close to the A8 Autobahn next to the Zusmarshausen in Bavaria.

After completion of the Sortimo Innovation Park, up to 4,000 electric vehicles can be charged there daily with 'green' electricity at 120 standard charging points (maximum 60kW) and 24 rapid charging points (max. 350kW).

The site covers approximately 35,000m² and is designed as a campus for digitalisation, energy efficiency and innovations – and impresses with its wide range of offerings to make each trip productive and enjoyable.

E-mobilists don't have to be idle while filling up: They can spend time at a café and shops within the Innovation Park, which will also feature offices, conference rooms and innovative communication technology.

Or while away the time in the attractive outdoor seating area and playground.

The lighting was required to be stylish and intelligent; TRILUX was a chosen lighting partner for this innovative project.

Smart constela with IOT modules

The award-winning networked TRILUX ConStela LED column with integrated IoT modules forms the core of the outdoor lighting concept. Some of the stelae are equipped with access points and provide a free W-LAN connection throughout the site. This is ideal, for example, for taking a detour to the Internet during a charging stop. At the same time, IoT camera modules in the ConStela LED luminaires increase visitors' sense of security on the site.

All in: store, dine, marvel

The interior areas are also smart and stylish: In addition to TRILUX's E-Line Next LED continuous row in black, Inplana recessed ceiling luminaires, Finea LED light channel, and Oktalite tracks with light panels and spotlights ensure optimally and atmospherically illuminated areas. All the luminaires are networked via the KNX building technology network. This allows the lighting of the entire area to be controlled and monitored with precision.
