Portuguese term or phrase:pimenteiro
The Dic. Língua Pt. Contemp. explains this as: 'Pequeno marco de sinalização luminosa colocado geralmente em faixas luminosas que, pela forma, se assemelha a um pimenteiro.'
So, what's this in English?
I was told years ago by a civil engineer that the English term was "power supply pod" or "power pod" but I've had no occasion to check it since then. You could try researching these terms to see what comes up.
