MHC Woerden

Commissioned by the municipality of Woerden, consultancy and engineering firm Middelkoop advies and MHC Woerden, SPORT Technologies has provided two hockey pitches with LICHT2 LED fixtures. The 16 conventional luminaires of 2200 Watt on both the main field and the second field have been replaced by 1000 Watt LED. With this investment, MHC Woerden saves at least 55% on energy costs. The demand from the clients of 250 lux was fully met, which became apparent during the implementation of an official independent N.S.V.V. light measurement by Toine Adams. During this measurement, the average value of 290 lux was achieved. The light fixtures of only 15 kilos have been installed by the in-house installation team with climbers from SPORT Technologies. MHC Woerden is very pleased with the new lighting and is also very enthusiastic about the different dimming positions so that even greater savings can be achieved.
