Originally built in 1923, the Olympic Stadium in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev underwent extensive renovation works based on a design by the German architects Gerkan, Marg und Partners (GMP) to host the championship. The stadium will welcome over 66,000 visitors for several games including the final on 1st July.
After the fantastic experience of the World Cup 2010, the Schreder teams in Ukraine and South Africa worked in close collaboration with the architects and the German lighting design office, Conceptlicht to provide lighting for most of the public areas in this spectacular stadium.
Just over 1,200 SchréderCubo luminaires equipped with traditional light sources and designed to meet the specific lighting requirements of Conceptlicht, were installed to light the main entrance hall, VIP and spectator areas.
Over 600m of the SchrederLEDbeam, which illuminates the famous Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban (South Africa), were installed to illuminate the upper ring of the public seating area. These luminaires are controlled by a DALI system to provide dynamic effects during the event.
The most spectacular lighting has been achieved by 640 specially designed Schreder luminaires which illuminate the magnificent roof of the stadium, creating a striking feature in the landscape.
These luminaires also have a DALI color variation system so that they can be dimmed according to the requirements during the matches.
