SPRINGBANK ICE ARENA & CURLING RINK
The Springbank Arena is in Calgary, Alberta. It is a very busy facility that hosts hockey, curling and figure skating events. When the time came to upgrade the lighting, there was a desire to save on both energy consumption and maintenance costs, and to improve the light quality. The aging metal halide fixtures provided inconsistent levels of illumination to different areas of the ice surface.
The ice surface measured 85’ x 200’. The existing fixtures were 400-watt metal halides mounted at 18’. The 50 fixtures consumed 23,500 watts.
Lumingen Technologies installed 50 of their SLD-PK-0160 lights. These fixtures used only 5,800 watts. They are IP67 and of very durable construction.
Lumingen utilized a 120-degree beam angle to provide very even lighting to the entire ice surface. In view of the energy savings, the ROI for this project is very short. In addition, these fixtures have a minimum L70 lifespan of 162,000 hours and will provide many years of maintenance free operation.
