Commerzbank Arena Parking Garage Frankfurt
The Commerzbank Arena in Frankfurt on the Main, home of the German football club Eintracht Frankfurt and formerly known as Waldstadion, was newly built for the 2006 FIFA World Cup as a pure football stadium from 2002 to 2005. With a capacity of 51,500 spectators, it is one of the ten largest football stadiums in Germany. Until recently, its 54,000 m² parking garage accounted for an annual energy consumption of 200,000 kWh, due mainly to the 2,100 “traditional” T8 fluorescent lamps in ECG damp-proof luminaires in the eight parking levels. Therefore, the stadium operators were looking for a modern energy-saving LED alternative. The solution: OSRAM SubstiTUBE HF LED tubes.
Sebastian Tuch, technical manager at Bilfinger HSG, the company responsible for the facility management of the Commerzbank Arena, explains why OSRAM and OSRAM SubstiTUBE HF LED lamps have been the perfect choice: “We have been looking for an energy saving LED alternative for our parking garage lighting for a long time now. The challenge we faced was that the product we were looking for, had to be compatible with our ECG, something which most brands and products did not. With the SubstiTUBE HF by OSRAM, we have found the perfect product for our requirements. This has proved to us once again that OSRAM is a competent and reliable partner for our projects.”
Jörg Meyer-Brenken from OSRAM Lighting Solutions adds: “We have been working with the Arena for some time now and have already been involved in a number of projects here. Together, we ensure that the Arena is kept up to date with the newest and most efficient products which also improve the experience for the Arena’s visitors.”
