Maritz Electrical shines the way for SA

If you ever remember playing a day/night game of cricket in your area's cul-de-sac under dimly lit street lamps, you’ll recall the rebellious feeling of being out, late after dark. Along with that experience came the difficulty of seeing a little red ball, hurtling at you through the semi-dark, trying to knock out your wickets or your teeth (which ever came first).

Since then, much may have changed, except for the eagerness of watching a world-class bowler throw a cricket ball at 150 kilometers per hour at a test batsman with the intent of knocking out their wicket. The only difference from when you were a child is the sheer visual brilliance this modern experience comes with – whether it’s on a high-definition television or at Newlands, The Wanderers, or St George’s Park.

And one of the keys to this brilliance? As with so much else in life – it’s all about the lighting.

Ahead of the much anticipated Mzansi Super League T20 competition, Maritz Electrical undertook the installation of the brand-new revamped lighting system at the second oldest cricket club in South Africa – St George’s Park Cricket Ground in Port Elizabeth.

According to Maritz Electrical’s Kurt Maritz, “St George’s Park, was the first LED-lit cricket stadium in the world using the Musco lighting system.”

The Musco lighting system and specified to be LED, the offerings to high defining broadcasting has vastly improved lighting to track ball speeds and slow motion. The grounds now boast one of the best lighting solutions in the world alongside arenas such as Formula 1 Grand Prix circuits, Twickenham rugby stadium, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and many other international sports venues.

Maritz Electrical has secured St Georges Park as a stadium of choice for future international tournaments that demand high definition lighting and meets the expectation of a world stage.
