Beacon turned off due to maintenance works until October 10th.

From Monday, August the 28th to October the 10th, the summit beacon will remain turned off due to maintenance works.

The beacon

The beacon, sending out two light beams with a reach of 80 kilometres, is composed of 4 "marine" motorised projectors. They are operated by automatically piloted computer programs. Since their rotation sweep is 90°, they are synchronized to form a double beam in a cross that pivots around 360°. The xenon 6000 watt lamps were chosen for their longevity, around 1,200 hours. The lamps are cooled to prevent overheating and a heating system is activated when the temperatures drop below zero Centigrade whilst the lights are off. This beacon resonates the image of Gustave Eiffel's Tower itself as a universal and symbolic landmark.
