Playing field lighting at the highest technical level

Osram illuminates a football pitch in Hochstadt, Germany with innovative LED floodlight system

04.04.2017 | Trade Press

Osram Lighting Solutions planned and implemented new, innovative pitch lighting together with the 1st FC 1911 Hochstadt e. V. football club. Twelve innovative Siteco LED floodlights bathe the also new, FIFA-certified artificial turf in especially efficient and high-performance light.

Under the leadership of the Chairman Manfred Maier and the contribution of several club members, the historical Hessian 1st FC Hochstadt e. V. football club drew up a concept for new playing field lighting and called on the specialists from Osram Lighting Solutions for subsequent planning. The aim was to ensure that the lighting complies with higher requirements in terms of efficiency and quality of light and that it also reflects the modern outlook of the club, and in particular its new FIFA 2 star-certified artificial turf. STRABAG Sportstättenbau was commissioned as general contractor for the project, Osram technology and expertise was sourced for lighting design and planning, and FSB Beling installed and started up the luminaires.

The new high-efficiency pitch lighting consists of 12 Siteco Floodlight 20 Maxi LED units with two different light distributions. These achieve not only high lighting levels of approximately 110 lx and high uniformity with a correlation coefficient of 0.78, but also convincing results in terms of energy savings and cost efficiency. In agreement with the client the lighting system was designed to enable the two halves of the pitch to be separately switched. It is also possible to operate the system either completely or in parts at half illuminance level, for example as suited to normal athletic training or training units with low lighting needs.
