These are both 1kW SON/T lamps but their arc tubes differ in construction. The top one is Osram and the lower is GE. I don’t have the correct gear to run these to compare them further.

Looks like that this GE is actually an american HPS lamp (Despite having a straight tubular outerbulb like the Osram, rather the american E25 6 ribs paddle shaped outerbulb) for use with an S52 ANSI ballast (It isn't compatible with the european 1000W HPS/MH chokes), as it (Like all american 1000W HPS lamps), is much longer and have longer and thinner arctubes than the Osram (And most european 1000W HPS lamp).
Also the frame and the arctube of the GE lamp, looks very american to me (Arctubes of american HPS lamps, for some reasons, looks different to me in design than the ones of the european HPS lamps).

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Both Lamps are European the OSRAM is designed for 220/240 volt Single Phase Supplies, and the GE Lamp is designed for 380/44o volt 3 Phase Supplies, yes as dor123 mentions this GE Lamp is Electrically the same as Bulb and European E40 cap where the US Lamp has the ET25 (Elliptical Tubular) Bulb and have the US E39 or Mogul Cap, Both the GE LU1000/T18/40 and the LU1000 (US model have a 250 volt 4.7 amp arc tube, and are interchangeable if they fit the same lampholders) where the OSRAM lamp has a 110 volt 10.3 amp Arc Tube
