The Cranbourne Turf Club has recently become only the second racing club in Victoria and the first of the Country Clubs to conduct thoroughbred races under lights.
The $6.7 million lighting upgrade commenced in mid-June of 2011 and held its first meeting under the lights on 9th March of this year.
Operating on alternative Friday evenings to the Moone Valley Racing Club, the Cranbourne Race Track's night racing seeks to provide entertainment for the whole family, whilst allowing for national and international coverage via television broadcasting.
Two visiting officials from the Hong Kong Racing Club were among the first to see the new lights in action, commenting that is was the best night racing technology that they had seen around the world.
INGAL EPS was proud to be part of this vast upgrade by supplying over $220,000 worth of fixed floodlighting poles. Thirty-nine ex-Valmont poles were supplied, ranging from 18-22 metres.
Combined, the 39 poles carry 612 of Sylvania's R2 Maxi Floodlights.
INGAL EPS' floodlighting range is ideal for large commercial applications such as sporting ovals, golf driving ranges etc. Depending on requirements product can be designed to allow for multiple lighting fixtures or even larger than normal sail areas.
