A Highlight for Copenhagen
Legendary metal band Metallica, featuring Danish drummer Lars Ulrich, inaugurated the Royal Arena in Copenhagen with three concerts – a fitting launch for this multi-use facility. With seating for 12,500, the structure is imposing in size and on par with arenas in other European capitals. Its lighting installations are also exemplary. Hoffmann Teknik installed a total of 44 control cabinets, including DALI equipment from WAGO: 187 DALI Master Modules and 531 DALI PIR Sensors. What is special about the Royal Arena is that DALI controls not only the lighting, but also the power supply.
According to Hoffmann project manager Jan Roed, this offered advantages for the wiring in particular, because the electricians only had to lay one cable, which saved time. However, the lighting experts still faced some challenges. Changes in large projects during the construction phase are not uncommon, and they can have far-reaching consequences. A single additional light fixture could throw off the entire installation; in the worst case, it might be necessary to install more control cabinets and lay more cable.
