    Indoor Hall Stadium

    Cairo, Egypt

    The complex is a multipurpose indoor venue, located near the International Stadium in Cairo, Egypt. With a capacity of 120,000 spectators, this hall is used for various types of events such as handball, volleyball, conferences, and trade fairs. It was also one of the arenas used during the last African Games with over 43 countries participating in 18 different sports. 

    Our challenge was to 

    the conventional luminaires replaced by ArenaVision LED in less than four months. The project scope included wiring, steel construction and commissioning, and luminaire aiming and programming. One of the biggest challenges in the project was also to construct a new CATWALK in order to be able to install the new fixture on time.”

    Customer challenge 

    In preparation for the 2016 African Men's Handball Championship, we were the selected partner to replace the old conventional luminaires in the stadium. The main challenge during  execution was the timing as the project had to be completed in less than four months.

    The right lighting

    During the project 160 ArenaVision LED floodlights were installed. Thanks to its flicker-free high quality, the new lighting allows the stadium to provide high definition broadcasting, therefore the stadium is now allowed to host international sport tournaments.  Since its upgrade, the stadium is also considered as one of the landmarks in the City of Cairo. Furthermore, this lighting upgrade has also led to a more than 50% reduction in terms of energy consumption.
