In addition to the main field which now boasts more than 300 lux, the other three fields are also equipped with the next generation of LED fixtures. “We have been studying the possibilities in the field of LED lighting for quite some time,” says Henny Prins, Facility Manager at GVVV.

““After a board meeting, we decided to take on this major operational assignment together with SPORT Technologies. The most important reasons were that the LICHT2 LED luminaires were designed and manufactured entirely by SPORT Technologies themselves. Since the entire production is in their own hands, they can deliver the quality that we as an end-user want. The players immediately noticed that the new LED lighting was on. In addition to the ball, they now also see the lines and (fellow) players better. In addition, the LED provides lighting for a better competition experience with the public,” he added.
