Abacus secures win at Trent Bridge
22 Jan 2008 . BY
Abacus Lighting has been awarded the lighting contract as part of the £8.2m Trent Bridge Cricket Ground redevelopment project.

The company will manufacture and install six 40m high fixed masts at the cricket ground carrying a total of 360 Challenger 3 floodlights, all designed to International Cricket Council (ICC) International Standards.

The masts will be manufactured to carry up to 64 floodlights for the present, with an additional 10% capacity in case of future ICC changes or the requirement for lighting levels suitable for TV match coverage.

The first foundations are currently being laid with the installation to be completed by Clegg Construction.

The floodlighting levels will be 2,200 Lux at the central wicket, reducing down to 1,000 Lux on the outfield. Abacus has also secured the contract to maintain the lighting installation for the next 10 years.

Trent Bridge is the home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and a world famous cricketing landmark. It has acted as host for County and Test cricket since 1838 and is the world's third oldest Test ground. Trent Bridge held its first international cricket match in 1899 between England and Australia - which finished in a draw!

The entire redevelopment project, which is scheduled to be completed in time for next season’s major matches, will expand the capacity of Trent Bridge and improve facilities for both players and spectators.

The floodlights will be in use for the first time for the second NatWest Series International against South Africa on 26 August 2008.
