The City of Pula was undergoing a tourist-attracting transformation. As part of the efforts to revitalize the seafront area, local officials decided to put the 158-year old Uljanik Shipyard to use. With the right lighting it could be turned from an industrial eyesore, shrouded in darkness at night, to an attraction that would excite and inspire visitors.
LED lighting was ready to get things ship-shape. Partnering with lighting designer Dean Skira of Lumenart Ltd, Philips equipped the eight cranes with ColorReach PowerCore floodlights. 48 were installed on the larger cranes and 26 on the four smaller cranes, for a total of 76 fixtures. The fixtures project a range of colors onto the metal monoliths, creating amazing effects that light up the night sky.
The effects are coordinated together in a carefully choreographed light show, set to music. This is made possible by the iPlayer 3 DMX lighting controller, which can manage the color and light level of each individual floodlight. Spectacular lighting, smart controls, amazed audiences.
The color changing landscape lights have totally transformed the shipyard. During the summer tourist season, the light show runs four times a night, wowing visitors and bringing new pride to the City.
