Lord's unveils telescopic floodlights

Lord’s cricket ground has unveiled its new floodlights, custom-designed by Abacus Lighting. The four floodlights are telescopic, so the masts can be extended to 48m when in use and retracted to just over 29m when not in use. With full touch-screen operation, the lights take just 20 minutes to be fully extended for use from switch-on and provide a lighting level of 2,200 lux over the central wicket, 1,800 lux over the inner field, and 1,300 lux over the boundary.

The headframe design of each floodlight mounts 100 Challenger 3 floodlights and cowls, with each 2kW daylight lamp producing 220,000 lumens to meet the lux standards necessary for HDTV broadcast. The design has been developed to fit aesthetically within the ground, with the curved design of the headframes taking its cue from the modernist lines of the Lord’s Media Centre. Out of season the headframes are removed.

“After 222 years of Lord’s and just days before the start of the ICC Twenty20 World Cup on the 5th of June, the new lights are an important step forward as part of our future vision for the improvement of Lord’s,” said John Stephenson, head of cricket at the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which runs Lord’s.

“As a former cricketer, I can say that playing at Lord’s is the pinnacle of your career, and the new floodlights produce a level of light that allows matches to be played into the evening with no detriment to the standard of play – truly remarkable,” said Angus Fraser, former England cricketer and current managing director of cricket at Middlesex County Cricket Club.
