Floodlight upgrade

PostedNovember 3, 2010

Cowdenbeath Football Club has appointed local firm K & G Electrical, following a competitive procurement process, to undertake the upgrading of the Central Park floodlights. The work is scheduled to begin this month and is due to complete in time for the Fife derby against Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday 27th November.

The existing pylons, which were erected in 1968 along with the original floodlight system, will remain but new Phillips lamps will be installed which will see the lux rating increase from the current level of 160 to 600.

This work will mark a major milestone for the football club with the current lux level some way below the SFA/SFL minimum requirement which has resulted in finanical penalties being imposed in the recent past. This has been an issue for the Club for some years but has remained unresolved due to the prohibitive costs of upgrading the system. However, funding recently secured will see a first class floodlghting system installed at Central Park.

The project has been jointly funded by the supporters Action Fund, investment from Neil Fentie and grant assistance from the Scottish Football Partnership. Thanks to all for their support in making the upgrade feasible.
