In collaboration with our English partner Orel e3, SPORT Technologies has equipped the Grimsby Town stadium with a completely new 800 lux LED lighting installation. Grimsby Town FC, a League Two English football club is one of the 25 oldest football clubs in England and its Blundell Park stadium can accommodate over 9,000 spectators. In 1958 the club introduced its first spotlights, which were bought second-hand from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The masts are therefore iconic for the stadium and an important part of the heritage.
When replacing the lighting, the club’s heritage was taken into account and the masts were only partially shortened to accommodate the new light fixtures. The mast frames have been specially developed for Grimsby Town and the lighting system was designed around the Football League Championship level (800 lux), which the club aspires to. A total of 86kW LICHT2 LED fixtures have been installed. The energy-saving is at least 60% compared to the existing fixtures. Extra detail is the design of the GT (Grimsby Town) logo in the luminaires. This function will be activated prior to official matches, which provides an extra fan experience in the stadium.
