Highmasts with american lanterns and 1000W HPS lamps near Haifa (Sorry for the blurrines).
The same type of Highmasts during the day .
Each highmast (Made in Israel probably by either Lev-Ofir, Ben-Hur or others), have 6-8 american highmast lanterns (These may be either GE, Holophane or Cooper lighting) with 1000W HPS lamps, that intended to be used only on highmasts with a specific arm design (Unlike in your pictures, where a regular road lanterns with 400W lamps, are used with a highmast with standard arms).
Here is a highmast with 6x400W HPS lanterns, in Horev city center of Haifa , which are either local made or american (As american highmast lanterns tends to have the lamp vertical operated, and not horizontal like in your picture, I don't know if these are local made highmast lanterns).
And finally, two other highmasts near Azrieli Haifa mall , the left have for sure, 4 local made lanterns with 400W HPS lamps, and the right is very similar to yours, with 6x250W two HPS lamps AEG Koffer 250 standard road lanterns.

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 (dd.mm.yyyy).

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

Unusual thing to see 1kW HPS lamps in streetlighting especially in such amount per mast, 6x400W and 6x(2x)250W are also nice.

1000W street lanterns for regular lampposts (And arms for installation on a regular electricity pole with overhead cables) are also exist, but are limited to the US and Canada streetlighting only (Many of them are discontinued):
1. American Electric Model 327 .
2. General Electric M-1000 .
3. General Electric Form 402.
4. Cooper OVL.
5. Hubbel RK.
6. Joslyn Mfg. and Supply MV151.
7. Line Material Industries/McGraw-Edison Unistyle 1000 .
8. Powerlite Devices B2213 and B2228.
9. REVERE Unitized Endoval 1000 .
10. Westinghouse HMA-60.
11. Westinghouse OV-35 .
12. Westinghouse OV-50 Silverliner .
All these street lanterns uses 700-1000W HID (Usually MV, but sometimes also HPS) lamps and are american.
These lanterns called in the US popular culture "Cobraheads", because if they viewed from beneath, they resemble a head of a cobra snake.
The only non american lantern that I know exist that is the closest to these lanterns level (In terms of lamp wattage) is:
1. AEG Largekoffer , which its highest wattage configuration is 2x700W MV lamps.

Note: Lanterns without URLs, are lanterns that I hadn't found a picture of them in Phozagora's website.
