UEFA Euro 2008TM: lights, camera, action!

To ensure that their lighting systems benefit from an uninterruptible supply of power even in the event of a fault, stadium operators are relying on BENDER’s monitoring technology.

The Wörthersee Stadium, which was completed in September 2007 in Klagenfurt (in the Austrian province of Carinthia) and boasts 32,000 seats, was used for preliminary round matches at the 2008 European Championships, involving the German, Polish and Croatian national teams, amongst others. Michel Platini, President of UEFA (the Union of European Football Associations), was very impressed by the architecture of the Klagenfurt stadium during his visit there. But the technology behind this ultramodern arena is equally impressive.
