New Orleans Saints select Musco for new LED lighting system

The New Orleans Saints kicked off the 2016/2017 NFL season at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome under a new LED lighting system by Musco Lighting. The new system is part of a series of renovations with partner, Siemens Corporation, to further enhance the spectator experience and reduce energy consumption.

After opening its doors in 1975, the Superdome has showcased elite sporting events, hosting seven Super Bowls, five NCAA men’s basketball Final Fours, and numerous soccer, motocross, and boxing events.

The installation of the new lighting system brings many benefits to the Superdome:

Improved visibility – custom-designed optics focus the light on the field without creating glare for players and spectators

Energy efficiency – reduces energy consumption by 82% when compared with the prior lighting equipment

Instant control – instant on/off capabilities eliminate the typical warm-up time associated with metal halide lamps

Special effects – creates dynamic light shows for pre-game and halftime entertainment

Efficient operation – dimming controls allow operators to adjust light output when full power of the system is not required, further reducing energy consumption

Extensive warranty – eliminates maintenance costs and headaches with a parts and labor warranty, backed by a team of area technicians

“We’re excited to partner with Siemens to bring an energy-efficient solution to the Superdome,” says Jeff Rogers, vice president of Musco. “From improving energy efficiency to aiding in the visual experience for spectators, our system ensures a win-win approach for the Saints.”

The Superdome joins an extensive list of facilities around the world that feature a state-of-the-art LED lighting solution provided by Musco. The list includes the Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, and the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park.
