University of Ghana Sports Stadium

Smart lighting solution for Accra Stadiums achieves 1500lux and ensures an efficient lighting solution

We are proud to have supplied the smart floodlighting solution for the University of Ghana Sports Stadium in Accra, Ghana. This stadium served as the main stadium for the 13th African Games.

The 13th African Games were held in Ghana from 8-23 March 2024. This significant event showcased the abundance of talent across the continent, serving not only as a prelude to the Olympics but also as a platform for athletes to compete and celebrate their skills. Accra hosted the games, with two sub-host cities, Kumasi and Cape Coast, also participating for the first time. Team South Africa won a total of 106 medals.

We supplied the lighting solution for the main stadium, namely the University of Ghana Sports Stadium, the Rugby Stadium and the Warm-Up Track in Accra, and was professionally installed by their local partner, Lightingale Limited and their associate Electrosafe cc.

Warm-Up Track
OMNIBLAST-2-E MAXI floodlights illuminate the Warm-Up Track.  The OMNIBLAST-E is the ideal tool for sports venues and other very large area applications that require a lighting solution with the highest efficiency and flexibility to adapt to the different lighting needs.

Available in a MIDI and MAXI variant, this LED solution offers an alternative, with proven benefits, to traditional floodlights fitted with 400W to 2000W HID lamps. The OMNIBLAST-E meets various lighting applications prerequisites, ranging from general area lighting to recreational sports lighting, up to professional broadcasting requirements, matching the horizontal and vertical obligatory lighting levels respectively. This makes it compliant with UHD/HD/4K broadcast and super slow-motion replays, as the lighting is flicker-free.

The OMNIBLAST-E’s modular concept of optical units means that 1, 2 or 3 modules can be mounted on a similar bracket arrangement to offer the utmost versatility, thereby providing a light distribution and lumen package perfectly adapted to the specifications of the area to be illuminated.

For this project, the BlastFlex™4 photometric engine was used, offering the highest efficiency for directional beams dedicated to specific applications in architectural and sports lighting. The ability to control the light with the highest accuracy reduces light pollution to surrounding areas, ensures uniformity on the area being lit and contributes to optimal use of the energy consumed.

The OMNIBLAST-E guarantees perfect glare control, a high colour rendering index (CRI) and meets the required television lighting consistency index (TLCI), as well as providing flicker-free lighting. The OMNIBLAST-E MAXI incorporates a patented cooling technology that maximises its lifespan and lumen output.
