SECURITY AT FOOTBALL STADIUMS
Professional football stadiums are obliged to guarantee spectator safety.
They are therefore subject to very strict regulation.
This includes the obligation of having back-up power:
+ The floodlighting and lighting for public areas must be supported by a secondary power source.
+ If the secondary power source is provided by a generating set, the system must be equipped with automatic start-up and enable lights to be switched on again when still hot.
+For events during night hours, the stadiums of professional clubs must have a regulatory 1,200 Lux lighting installation with a back-up power source (generating set) that allows matches to be played at night.
GELEC ENERGY has created an extensive range of generating sets of between 9 and 2,000 kVA. Click here to view the range.
