ELPA street lamp

ELPA street lamp

Click to view full size image

This is classic Serbian style street lamp which uses 125W mercury vapour lamp.This was replaced last month with LED streetlamp which uses now ONLY 25W (This is not a joke).I got this lamp with sodium lamp and it is quite bright.This lamp was ungrounded so i put new cables in it.This is much much brighter than 25W LED streetlamps.

I like very much these streetlights you use to find in ex-Yugoslavian countries but difficult to identify each of them. It seems that there were a lot of different manufacturers who made/sold such lanterns.

I love these wellglass fittings, they make excellent outside lamps for back gardens etc. Most of the ones I've seen in the past had simple incandescent GLS lamps in, although a 50W mercury lamp would look good in one

In Yugoslavia several manufactures made these type of lamps with small differences:
In Serbia were Svetlost Zemun (Lamp is gray usually with logo on ballast box and it has white painted reflector)EMPA Aleksinac(Usually black coloured with silver reflector)
In Zagreb were TEP.These lamps have bigfer ballast box and 2 frame support.Same as EMPA or Svetlost.In Slovenia ELEKTROKOVINA.Their lamps were different but quite popular in ex Yugoslavia.

I am so pleased to see this photo! Last month I drove from Sarajevo to Belgrade, and as soon as crossing the frontier into Serbia I noticed these classic old lights everywhere in the smaller villages. But it was dark and not easy to get a good look at them, and I thought I would never see them again. It seems to be a really classic design, so simple but I suppose also quite reliable because many even had no glass but were still working fine.

What surprised me more was that nearly all of them used mercury 125W, but the colour differences were really striking and some lamps had become so dim as to be practically useless.

So I am curious about what kind of mercury lamps are common in your country. I do not think any of the former Yugoslavian countries made HID lamps (except maybe Tesla in Pancevo or Osram at Novi Sad a very long time ago?). Do you have the same big brands as Western EU countries, or all Chinese stuff now, or something else? Since Sylvania and Osram stopped making mercury lamps in EU following the 2016 ban, we now see huge quantities of counterfeit lamps with these brand names, mainly coming in from China via Romania and Latvia but illegally marked with Made in Belgium, Germany etc. and with fake date codes from pre-2016. These sometines even have no phosphor and just diffuse white bulbs, and appear quite greenish. Perhaps that is what is also making its way now into the lights I saw in Bosnia and Serbia. In the whole of Croatia and Vojvodina I did not see any of this kind, so I suppose it was quickly replaced with HPS and LED in those areas.

Thanks for the information.

In Macedonia, I have also pictured streetlights like these which were marked ЗЛАТОМИР (MZLATOMIR), КРИС (KRIS) and IM. Do you know them ?

I have also pictured one of these streetlights from FEMAN in Montenegro.

Do you have some knowledges about streetlights in ex-Yugoslavia in general ? I already knew SCHREDER, ELEKTROKOVINA and TEP before my trip (they seems to be the 3 main manufacturers in ex-Yugoslavia) and I could identify many streetlights of them, but I still have some unidentified ones.

Feman is working in Jagodina in Serbia.Feman lamps were used later.I have never seen Macedonian luminares.

I have 1 Holland Philips 125W bulb and all other are from China.

In Serbia Tesla lamps became rare in period from 2000s when Philips Tungsram and Osram tubes and lamps dominated the market.You can still find old Osram,Philips and Tungsram tubes from 2000s in working condition.Old Yugolsav mercury vapour lamps were replaced with Philips ones.Early Philips lamps from Holland France and Belgium lasted long but these Chinese lost brightnes after 3 years.In villages you can maybe find some Tesla,EBZ,tt and other rare lamps but in EOL state.Tesla bankrupted in 2011 in Zagreb tt bankrupted in 2006.

I'm afraid the language barrier doesn't help, but if I'm getting the currency conversion right, that's just over £18 GBP so not a bad price at all. The shipping may be a problem, though

Oftenly these lamps are cheaper on internet because someone who doesn't know much about lamps gives it for 10£ GBP or less.Sometimes price is lower because bulb is EOL.Shipping is maybe little problematic but glass from this lamp is quite strong.Sometimes this glass can break if vandals throw rock on it or from years.You can turn on google translate on page.

I meant the language on the website, so I will look again with a translator. Your English is certainly 100% better than my Serbian

The ELVA Company only delivers to the Serbian market. I just checked the page. I like that lamp. Although I am impressed by the energy saving potential that arises from the Exchange of metal Halide to Led I still prefer the Looks of this lamp. Traditional. Made to last.

Yes.These lamps are replaced with LEDs in Stara Pazova (for other towns not sure).

Made to last they may be, but they still replace them with LED

You don`t have Serbian language in schools.In Serbia you have to learn English language as foreign language.
