Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Musco Lighting, specialists in the design and manufacture of sports and transportation/infrastructure lighting solutions around the world, has joined the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF).
From hometown Little League fields to Olympic Games and professional sports stadiums and ports around the globe, Musco Lighting has been the market leader in its field since the company’s inception in 1976.
“We’ve pioneered systems using metal halide and LED technologies that have made dramatic improvements in energy efficiency and provided affordable ways to control spill light and glare,” said Abu Dhabi-based Brett Paulsen, General Manager at Musco Gulf Lighting and Contracting, LLC.
He added: “Our global team partners with customers to plan, complete, and maintain a cost-effective, trouble-free lighting solution for their facility.
“Offering permanent and temporary lighting systems for new and retro-fit projects, we bring first-hand knowledge and experience with the many issues that impact players, spectators, neighbours, television broadcasts, and staff.
“In joining the Asian Golf Industry Federation, we’re looking forward to being a part of a great organisation.”
In 2019, Musco Lighting installed a new state-of-the-art lighting system at King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City in the English Premier League.
Among many other high-profile clients, Japan’s Nissan Stadium, also known as the International Stadium of Yokohama, turned to Musco Lighting to improve energy efficiencies and light quality at the country’s largest sporting venue.
“Musco Lighting delivered a custom fabricated lighting solution that was easy to install and performed per design. We are very satisfied with the product and results. Nissan Stadium is one of the first major stadiums in Japan to have the LED lighting for the field of play and is the first to use music, lighting and video shows programmed together for the stadium entertainment purpose,” said a stadium spokesperson.
Paulsen said: “Sports venues have specialised needs when it comes to lighting. We’ve helped thousands of partners get the answers they need – from identifying funding resources, to system design, to installation and long-term service.
“Our LED sports lighting – as well as our HID solutions – for new and retro-fit projects incorporates lighting, structural, and electrical components, which provides streamlined installation, trouble-free operation, and long-term reliability.”
In the entertainment world, Musco has been awarded an Academy Award for scientific and engineering achievement in film lighting, and an Emmy by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for lighting the NCAA football telecasts.
Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Musco Lighting to the Federation as an Executive Member and look forward to developing a productive partnership.
“Once we’re able to return to staging live events, it’s our intention to increasingly use stadia as venues for both golf and sports turf education. As such, these gatherings will prove excellent platforms to highlight the products of Musco Lighting.”
