The Marassi Lantern lights up thanks to LTC

After the Dacia Arena in Udine (one of the most innovative sports facilities in Italy), even the energy of the Marassi stadium in Genoa, starting from the current football season, is flowing through electric cables produced by La Triveneta Cavi. In fact, for the recent restyling of the famous Ligurian stadium, a large supply of our cables has been selected. The Luigi Ferraris Stadium is 110 years old and is the oldest football stadium still working in our country, recognized as one of the sports facilities that has made the history of Italian football. In 1933, between the two wars, it was named after Luigi Ferraris, captain of Genoa who died in the First World War.

Trisecur FG16OM16, a perfect cable for Stadium Marassi

27 kilometers of BT Trisecur FG16OM16 10G2.5 produced by La Triveneta Cavi were used in the works for the new lighting system of the stadium, mainly employed to power the lights and the safety lamps arranged on the entire surface of the stadium. Our Trisecur cable offers maximum safety and is in fact required by designers of sports facilities as it is resistant to weather and variable temperatures, with a guarantee of functioning for many events to come.

The version of FG16OM16 used for the Marassi stadium is 10-conductor

As reported by the website Calcio e Finanza –  there is a project worth over 40 million euros to be implemented over the next three years.

The project includes the construction of a “sky box” area with luxury lounges dedicated to companies and sponsors, the renovation of the changing rooms, the construction of a conference center, entertainment areas, restaurants and shops. 

For this facility Forum LED projectors (by Disano illuminazione Spa) were chosen, the spotlights that have brought the quality of LED lighting up to the level of large sports facilities. In addition to energy savings, the perfect stability of the light, with high color rendering, guarantees high-definition TV shooting and maximum comfort for both players and visitors.  

The new Luigi Ferraris stadium system includes 240 1392W Forum LED projectors with 3 different optics, replacing the 368 old generation 2000W lights.
