Nou Barris Park

Somhidros, one of the foremost European hydraulic system designers and manufacturers, decided to use exclusively fiber optics on their huge Nou Barris Park in Barcelona for a low-maintenance installation. The main lake perimeter, geysers and waterfalls are lit with fiber optics light guides. To create an intertwining tracery of water arches, Somhidros designed special water lances with fiber optics light guides inside to illuminate the water itself without obvious source.
