Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Stadium, Indonesia

Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium or famously known as Stadion Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) is a multi-purpose stadium located at the heart of Jakarta, Indonesia. Indonesia hosted the 2018 Asian Games and the 2018 Para Games, with a number of sporting facilities including tennis, swimming, basketball, badminton, archery, hockey, athletics, softball, football and baseball.

Due to the Asian Games approaching, they decided to refurb every inch of the stadium, including the architectural lighting and even the pedestrian sidewalks.

  • As a result, the sidewalks were made to be more spacious and well-lit with LED street lamps using a Pharos control system.
  • As well as the stadium, both use a Pharos LPC 80 to control the LED lighting system with 3,500 lux of power which is three times brighter than before, this system saves over 50 percent of their electricity.
  • Pharos LPC 80 offers an extreme level of power and integration for the significant channel counts. This controller offers remote management; so that the team can access the browser and manage their installation simply with their mobile phone.
  • With the Pharos control system in place, the Asian games opened early this year and saw Gelora Bung Karno Stadium was illuminated Montreal’s based lighting designer Yves Aucoin who delivered a profound lighting display for both opening and closing ceremonies illustrating the heritage of Indonesia.
