The Cegeka Arena, home ground to the Belgium topflight football club KRC Genk, has ordered several Rhenac Sports LED grass grow units to support the recuperation of their football turf. From next season, the grounds management crew will have the latest LED grass grow technology to supplement the natural light to the grass that winter weather fails to deliver.
From the coming season, Rhenac Sports LED grass grow technology will supplement light to the surface of the Mac3Park stadium, home ground of PEC Zwolle FC in the Netherlands.
To support the natural grass growth, the Veltins Arena took ownership of Rhenac Sports LED grass grow lighting in October last year. An assessment by the official German FA pitch consultant has shown that the grass of the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen has increased its root length as well as sward density during the past winter. This is a remarkable feat, given the fact that the area experiences less than 50 hours of sun per month during winter.
