Thorn Lighting AS lightens a tunnel in Bergen and the Holmenkollen Ski Arena

Thorn, since 2000 part of the Austrian Zumtobel Group , which is the European leader in professional lighting systems and European number two in lighting components, was able to conclude major contracts during the last year in Norway. The highly recognized, global brand for professional indoor and outdoor lighting has already taken the position as market leader in the UK. In addition, Thorn is also operating successfully in France and in the Nordic countries and acts as supplier in the Australian and Hong Kong markets.

The lighting of an 8 km long twin bore tunnel in Bergen is one of Thorn’s recent projects. The tunnel was equipped with robust, moisture-, dust- and corrosion-proof luminaries. The housing of the luminaries is fully-welded in acid-proof stainless steel. The solution is considered as a very sophisticated high-tech lighting that requires many years of experience.

Another project of Thorn Lighting AS was the lighting of the cross-country trails at the Holmenkollen Ski Arena in Oslo. For this project, Thorn’s “Victor and Civic” luminaries were selected for the 6km long routes, which are surrounding the ski jump.
