The first smart street in Romania was built by the Cluj-Napoca City Hall with European funding. It has all the facilities of a modern, green public area adapted to the current technological realities and urban mobility.
The street was built during the summer of 2020, and we are proud that AVK P7 hydrants are part of the design. Additionally, the street is equipped with sensor irrigation systems, a modern pedestrian area, places for charging electric cars, bicycles and scooters, free Wi-Fi, USB sockets for mobile devices, energy efficient street lighting, water fountains and modern street furniture.
The P7 hydrants have several safety features and comply or exceed the requirements of standard DIN EN 14384. They are designed with a double closing system for continuous sealing during maintenance operations or in case of accidental hits. The sealing element is covered with a very resistant material based on drinking water approved polyurethane.
The hydrants contribute through quality and design to the modern landscape. They were installed by one of the largest public utility companies in Romania that services a population of approximately 800,000 people.
Based on a three-year procurement contract with the water utility, the hydrants were delivered by the authorised AVK distributor Vestra Industry. The contract includes more than 500 underground hydrants and 500 above-ground hydrants.
