The setting of this project was a 230m by 60m golf driving range. The lighting at that point of time used 24 units of 1000 watts metal halide on two 15 meter poles.
The conventional lighting faced constant maintenance issue due to the age of the lamp. Brightness was failing and the users were complaining. Furthermore the cost of replacements and maintenance was relatively high due to the need of sky lift to access the lights. The general requirement of golf driving ranges are 40 lux reflection on the ball on a vertical plane of axis and good surge protection.
The solution was 24 units of 400 watts Advanled Hi-Mast lighting at a narrow beam with the most suitable layout and tilt to allow for even lighting and negligible wastage of light on the vertical plane of at least 20 meters.
Double surge protection was applied on the lamp and the pole. Simulations was done on the spot with the client so that a decision could be made immediately and so that products are manufactured as soon as possible to resume normal operations.
The result was easily recognised by owners and the users as a marked improvement on the lighting performance. Expected ROI from savings and usage was 1.5 years. Expected lifetime based on usage is 15 years.
