Hong Kong Jockey Club

The Honk Kong Jockey Club have contracted Philips Lighting to supply over 1700 x 2kW Arenavision floodlights complete with Active Reactor control gear for the new lighting at Happy Valley and Sha Tin race courses.

The Active Reactor control gear allows the lamps to operate in 3 modes:

  • Operating the lamps at constant lumens
  • Operating the lamps at full power
  • Operating the lamps in dim mode

Because the Happy Valley and Sha Tin race courses are located in high density residential areas, dimming of the lights inbetween races (to reduce light spill and glare) is an important function that the Active Reactor can perform.

The project started in 2013 and the new lighting at both tracks should be completed in 2015.
