SC IMST – with a new SmartArena floodlight system to the Second Bundesliga

The SC Imst is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2023 and has great ambitions to advance to the second league. One of the steps in this direction was the modernization of the floodlight system, as the old system could no longer be commissioned. Preworks GmbH was responsible for the consultation, the lighting design and the installation of the system. SmartArena Tera GEN3r LED floodlights, manufactured at their production facility in Styria/Austria, were installed.

Sebastian Trieb, Sales Director of SmartArena, led the project and reflected, “The light poles were quite high at 23 meters, and with the new 400 lux/3000K system, Imst now meets the Bundesliga standard. The club has the ability to choose between different switching levels and can dim the lights, for example, during evening training sessions. Additionally, the floodlights can now be controlled via smartphones and tablets. We were also present at the inaugural match against SV Wörgl and everyone was very satisfied with the floodlights.”

We asked Vice Mayor Marco Seelos, who advocated for the new LED floodlight system on behalf of the municipality of Imst, for feedback on the project’s progress. In the conversation he said: “There were four key factors in the bidding process: a significant reduction in emissions, the energy efficiency of the system, the light intensity, and the financial framework. Various offers were obtained, including from a local provider, but only SP-TEC with the SmartArena lights could fulfill all the requirements according to our specifications. We didn’t want to hinder the club and its development, so we decided on a 400 lux system. The system works flawlessly, and the stepwise control enables the club to train even more energy efficiently.”
