Looks like dutch fuseboxes to me. From the "HAF" brand.

For example:

[Linked Image]

The main switch looks like a HOLEC one, probably somewhere around 160 amps.

On top of that are 6x 35amp diazed III fuses (probably 3 phase?)

In the box in the middle you can see 5 fuses (gray-yellow-gray-blue-blue).

Gray is for 16 amp diazed II fuses
Blue for 20 amp, and Yellow for 25 amp.

Also, the 3 right breakers look like ABB/HAF too.

Funny (and weird) setup.

Really weird but interesting stuff!
The top center DIII fuse is missing the key ring, meaning fuses up to 63 amps could be used!
The three single pole breakers (maybe Siemens?) next to the 1+N breakers (a style I've never seen before) scream 3ph too!
But why on earth the NEMA 5-15 receptacles?
That stuff seems to have been abandoned and partially demolished with all those cut wires.

PS Second thoughts. More than 3 blades of grass between the camera and the horizon, so it could be New Zealand, they like the old corrugated tin roofing as well! But then again, I can't see no bluddy sheep!

Ah, but which ones are upside down? [Linked Image]

American receptacles, European-looking wiring. Could this be somewhere in Central/South America perhaps?

A lot of land where several single family houses are to be built. Apparently they install the electric (underground) service in advance. (Aruba, Dutch Caribbean)
120V-60Hz. I was unable to ascertain any further info.

The service looks fun, but the fixtures can be found here. I just haven't seen any lamps shaped like that one. All the ones I've seen here are straight tubes compact fluorescents.

Fixtures work nice though. Instant start, no ballast to change (it's in the lamp), less heat.

I'm guessing that there is a meter somewhere nearby...?
