In the same old industrial facility than the fluorescent goodies shown in the preceding pictures in this album.

Reportedly these luminaires now rapidly disappear from the streetlighting system of Berlin. Some still remain on Adlergestell in Schöneweide/Adlershof, but presumably not for much longer.

Although I'm personally not exactly a fan of the "Löffel", I like how these just look like from another world. These are so unnecessarily huge and weird it's cool.

I suppose they are being replaced by LED, right? Boring, what a shame.

These could be reused as boats when they get replaced.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

They look a bit depressing to me. Huge dark and weird. However the smaller size I do like more.

Would've been better to use 1Kv MV instead 2x 250w MV. A big waste of metal and space.

UGLY isn't the word for these-who put them up should be ashamed of themselves.This has got to get the award for the most hideous light fixture ever!I would rather have a LED light than those things!And bet if you are close to these while they are on would be glare city despite the phosphored bulbs.

I hate to admit it but I've had one of these on my eBay watch list for a while now . This thing is weird and unusual, some of my collection is weird and unusual so a perfect fit ! The eBay light is just to expensive right now, plus with shipping from Belarus to the U.S. makes it worse!

I would rather count on sources from Germany. Just saw a mention that even never installed fixtures are available and look uncommon, with the fiberglass-reinforced plastic still being white. By the way, the single lamp version of this largest size (1.69 metres long, explicitely to be mounted on high poles, not at low height) was for 1000 watts.

Concerning the question about a replacement in this case: None. They either still switch it on (presumably with only a single lamp), or they leave the parking lot unlit now.

Kinda want one...

Why can't we just use led retrofit instead of replacing the whole fixture.

I wonder how does this compare in size to the Canadian Powerlite B2213 from the 1960s. Two lamps in one reflector is unique for sure though. I wonder if it could fit a single 2kW mercury lamp.

The single lamp version of this size, which I never saw in reality (only in the catalogue), was for a 1 kW lamp. 2 kW mercs were in general pretty rare here, considered overbred with a short lifetime as price to be paid for that; I think their production ceased at Narva already in the seventies.

These two lamp configurations were meant for nighttime reductions. Both lamps have their own circuit, and it would have been possible to switch off one overnight. However, this was hardly ever implemented and usually either both lamps were on all the time, or, more often, it was all the time like this. It is possible that in the already mentioned Berlin streetlighting system only a single-digit number of these luminaires is still operational with both lamps.

I believe if it was standing on it's slipfitter" it's about 5ft 5in.

Or 1.65m

Why can't we just use led retrofit instead of replacing the whole fixture.
