Sewell-Thomas Stadium installs Musco LED lighting solution

The University of Alabama’s Sewell–Thomas Stadium will soon make history as one of the first NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) baseball fields to be lit with an LED light source.

The University of Alabama, USA, has installed Musco’s lighting systems at several venues on campus, including its tennis facility and the Sam Bailey Track ad Field Stadium.

Musco’s Light-Structure Green system uses an LED light source, and provides many benefits for players, spectators and television broadcasts.

Visibility is improved with custom optics designed to direct the light onto the field and not into the players’ or spectators’ eyes. Energy consumption is reduced by 53% compared with the prior 1,500W metal halide lights. The system provides a complete solution from foundation to pole-top, using Musco’s 5 Easy Pieces system for trouble-free installation and reliable performance. Maintenance is eliminated thanks to its 10-year parts and labor warranty, backed by a network of technicians.

The LED light source offers instant on/off/dimming capabilities for additional energy savings when full power of the system is not needed, such as between games or during practice.

“The Alabama Crimson Tide is setting the stage for collegiate baseball with an energy-efficient lighting solution that improves playability, enhances broadcasts, and brings a show-time element before, during, and after games with special effects,” said Jeff Rogers, vice president of developmental sales, Musco Lighting. “Combining the system’s efficient operations with Musco’s warranty, the university’s operating costs will be substantially reduced.”

Sewell–Thomas Stadium joins an extensive list of premier facilities that continue to benefit from Musco’s state-of-the-art LED lighting solutions. That list features NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas; the Denver Broncos Field House in Colorado; the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City; and AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
