For the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), redeveloping the Wankhede Stadium up to international standards was a non-negotiable aspect. It had to be since I had decided to host the 2011 World Cup Final there.
The illumination requirement was finalised to galvanized polygonal stadium mast with highly efficient 2 kW sports floodlight luminaire, which would ensure high-quality floodlighting and make it suitable for HDTV transmission. With such a major upgrade in such a tight deadline, MCA turned to the masters in the illumination business, Bajaj Electricals Ltd., for a game-changing assist.
BEL brought in a specialised project execution team for this task. The entire project was further segregated into two major blocks to simplify the complexity of the task at hand.
BEL adhered to all the requirements, and successfully executed and commissioned the project within the set deadlines. The MCA management committee appreciated Bajaj’s project execution skillset as well as efficient lighting solution.
Bajaj Illumination EPC segment understood the challenges of the project and conceptualised its design based on the requirements of the stadium.
BEL carried out continuous 15 days of lighting design activity in order to achieve all design parameters w.r.t. excellent quality of lighting, consideration of NIT specified luminaire quantity and mast height (72 m top).
