Lighting system for Corcovados railway in Rio
Corcovado's railway was the first of its kind to use electrical energy in Brazil. It is even older than the Christ statue itself. At that time, the steam engine was considered a true miracle of the building industry, as it crossed a 3824-meter-long railway line in a completely steep terrain. At the beginning of the 19th century these trains were replaced by electric machines and in the later 1970s a Swiss company took over the management of the railway and brought safer and more modern train models from Switzerland.
We are happy and proud that we were able to equip the Corcovados Railway with our lighting system and, after its installation in 2018, we have now also visited it live on site in Rio.
