Walkia® Lighting renovated the lighting of two of the ice hockey rinks at Imatran Jäähalli to provide solutions that met ice halls’ current requirements and the lighting criteria set out by the Finnish Ice Hockey Association. Mestis-league ice hockey team Imatran Ketterä uses Imatran Jäähalli for its home matches. The old, 400 W high-pressure sodium lights were replaced with 240 W Ultima Highbay Ultrabright LEDs in the competition hall and their 150 W equivalents in the practice hall. Problems with the old lights included that they were incredibly slow to come on, they offered poor luminous efficacy, and they had extremely high running costs.

The City of Imatra and Ketterä wanted smart lighting for the ice hall, and ideally a solution that could be controlled as effortlessly as possible. A comparison criterion for the lighting and control system was the lifecycle cost calculation, as a result of which the decision was made to opt for high-quality Walkia LED lights combined with the smart Vantage lighting control system. A range of lighting presets was created for different events at the ice hall, in keeping with the Finnish Ice Hockey Association’s guidelines for the classifications J2 (800 lx), J3 (500 lx), and J4 (250 lx), complemented by an additional service mode preset (100 lx). The control system is operated wirelessly through the Vantage Touch control panel directly from the control room, using five Touch panel touch-sensitive switches. We also worked in collaboration with Ketterä to create a range of different presets for game events. The lighting in the stands before a game and the blue line lights for different celebrations can be controlled wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet, using the Walkia Vantage lighting control app.
