Mayor Radhakrishnan National Hockey Stadium in Chennai, India
Abacus were delighted to be selected to floodlight the prestigious new National Hockey Stadium in India, at Chennai (formerly Madras).
Radhakrishnan Stadium is regarded by the International Hockey Federation as one of the best in the world for its state-of-the-art infrastructure. In 2004, the stadium was redesigned and upgraded by the Sports Authority of Tamil Nadu to prepare the venue for hosting the 2005 Champions Trophy in December. After the renovation drive, the stadium features a re-laid synthetic hockey surface and floodlights of international standards.
The stadium boasts a Class I 500lux floodlighting scheme, delivered by the superb flat glass optics of the Challenger® 1 floodlight and 2kW lamp. The IP66 rated unit, with its class leading reflector system and internal baffle further reducing player glare, is ideally suited to the often harsh climate of the region.
Abacus Lighting are proud to be associated with such an institution as this.
