Midstream Lighting bring light back to Plough Lane

AFC Wimbledon have recently made a historic return the Plough Lane, the former home of Wimbledon FC and Midstream Lighting were able to provide their services to bring the light back to Plough Lane. 

Midstream Lighting designed, manufactured, and installed the whole LED lighting for the project including the installation of two 25m masts. To provide the lighting levels required for League One they used 52 of their proprietary Modus R Series floodlights. A lightweight, extremely versatile, high powered series, the Modus R has been designed for both retrofit and newbuild sports stadia projects. And it delivers low-glare, broadcast ready, flicker-free ready LED lighting.

Their in-house lighting design team also future-proofed the whole solution so that if, or when, the Dons get promoted to the Championship League the system can be quickly upgraded to meet the lighting levels needed there too. And of course, as with every Midstream project, they delivered it on time, on spec, and on budget.

James Brunt, Sports Director at Midstream Lighting said:

"Here at Midstream Lighting we handled the whole lighting project for the new Plough Lane stadium something we’re immensely proud of. For me when you work on any project and you’re there to see your hard work come to life it’s always a moment to be extremely proud and this was no exception.

This project has held a special place in my heart though. I’ve been involved in it for over five years now, initially working with architects and consultants on the design concepts for the new stadium. And to see it all the way to through completion and the incredibly loyal ‘Dons’ fans return to their spiritual home – albeit ‘virtually’ for now because of COVID-19 – has been a wonderful journey. The new stadium will also have a huge impact on the regeneration of the local area. So knowing that is really rewarding too."
