    What the customer wants


    When the town of Goes commissioned a new artificial pitch to be laid at the Het Schenge sports complex in 2012, they also wanted to install the most sustainable lighting solution available, and preferably LED. “Wait a bit,” recommended Oostendorp, a local installation firm. Good advice, too, as it turned out.

    The right lighting 


    Soaring power bills, bright lights and high maintenance costs are common where traditional sports field lighting is concerned. These issues are a thing of the past with OptiVision LED.

    This LED lighting solution cuts energy consumption by as much as 50%, not least because the lighting can be dimmed and brightened. Maintenance costs are also much lower due to the long lifetime and modular system construction. Another specific advantage: these lights don’t need time to warm up before working. LED lighting hits full light output immediately, and dims just as quickly. Power savings, lower maintenance costs, less light pollution, flexible lighting with adjustable brightness: Goes soccer club is tackling the problems with traditional sports field lighting by switching to OptiVision LED.
