The request for tenders emphasized energy efficiency, high quality optics and durable design. In the first phase of the Helsinki LED project Greenled is set to deliver 1 700 Sirius outdoor luminaires to enlighten the Finnish capital. Launched in April 2015, Sirius is an innovative Finnish made LED luminaire that combines advanced lighting technology and robust design.

"The decision Helsinki made serves to reinforce our confidence in our ability to provide the most advanced LED luminaires on the market. We work hard to ensure the high quality of our Finnish made products and envision executing similar projects for many more cities, both in Finland and abroad, in the near future,”" said Pertti Tahvanainen, CEO of Greenled Oy. "The market for LED luminaires is currently growing at an annual rate of 20%. The Sirius outdoor luminaire is a great example of a successful Finnish product that is based on sustainable development and advanced technology".

"We believe in profitability and business growth based on domestic production," said Tahvanainen. The steadily growing market share of LED luminaires within the EU is further facilitated by several factors, including recent development of regulation, such as the EU Energy Efficiency Directive and several major retailers banning the sales of incandescent light bulbs. The value of the global LED lighting market was estimated at more than six billion euros in 2014 and the potential for future growth remains significant, as, for example, only a relatively small proportion of outdoor lighting is currently covered with LED luminaires.
