Looks like an industrial or similar facility, i.e. no public streetlighting?

It are such locations where presumably most of the OURW that have been installed in Germany (as only Polish MV luminaires ever imported) still remain, but usually dead and often as ruins with bowls and lamps missing. Many of the 2250 installations on main streets have already during the eighties been replaced by BG 1 luminaires with a single 150 or maybe 250 watts HPS lamp. Still in operation are nowadays some scattered pieces on streets and some railway track lighting installations. Often these are the single-lamp 1250 anyway, and all other still working 2250 I saw so far, besides the one at the southwestern entrance of Ruhland, are in use with only a single lamp.

This is a part of Gdynia Orłowo rail station, classic MV fixtures were used for illumination of maintenance workers base, but it was abandoned and that part of lighting is no longer fired up. Passenger platform is illuminated by contemporary HPS fixtures and only a short passage to nearest street is still illuminated by MV fixtures.

In Poland the number of MV fixtures preserved till today varies greatly depending on region, in some places they are quite abundant, in other nearly extinct. Most often it is easier to find classics in industrial facilities but lately lighting modernisation in industry sped up.

By the way, from which manufacturer originate the HPS fixtures that PKP PLK has installed in great numbers during the last ten or so years, apparently keen to replace every single MV luminaire? Years ago they even had a related page on their website, but as far as I recall it only generically mentioned their standard lighting fixture.

SL-100 PKP made by ES-System, dedicated for railways version of SL-100 which was also made by Siteco and Siemens. No new fixtures of this type are installed anymore, Philips Sellenium and SHZ 100/Astraroad are now installed, in many places where SL-100 were installed some time ago now there are newer fixtures.
