LG Innotek to Light up 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Stadium

LG Innotek announced that the company mass-produces high power LED packages (3535 Gen4 series) for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics stadium.

The company said that the LED packages are supplied for lightings of three stadiums in Pyeongchang, including the Alpensia Ski Jumping Center and stadiums for biathlon and cross country. It will be mounted in the SUFA series sports lighting manufactured by KMW and installed in the stadiums by the end of this year.

These LED packages boast an efficacy of 100lm/W in 10W category and a color rendering index (CRI) of 90. The number of packages mounted on the lighting was reduced by half while maintaining the same level of light intensity.

The sports lighting needs to brighten the stadium evenly for a long duration, so it requires high performance and stable light supply at the same time.

Previously used metal-halide lamps making them difficult to install and maintain due to their heavy weight and volume. Also, their lifespan is 10,000 hour, 20% shorter than LED lighting, and it is difficult to produce different colors of lighting using them, limiting their usage.

But LED lighting had limitations in its usage due to the heat generated by LED when the lighting remains turned on for a long time. Turning on the lighting with high power made the inside temperature to rise, affecting the lifespan of the lighting.

LG Innotek secured reliability of the lighting by implementing a circuit design optimized for sports lighting and minimizing the heat generation with its proprietary heat dissipation structure. In addition, its low flicker makes it more useful for broadcasting. As the lighting uses a smaller number of LED packages than existing products, the company could enhance the price competitiveness of the finished lighting as well.

The company is expected to make inroads into the high-end LED lighting market by leveraging their experience of providing stadium lightings for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

LG Innotek has aggressively made a foray into the markets of advanced countries such as Europe, North America, and Japan based on its proprietary technologies and business competitiveness that it has accumulated for the past 15 years.

The company expands its business areas into adjacent fields such as UV LED and LED Lighting by using its converged technologies such as optical technology and LED lighting technology.

Suk-Hwan Kang, a head of the LED marketing division, said, “We will continuously strive to supply LED lighting solutions that customers want by utilizing our innovative technologies and quality assurance system."
