CABLE-STAYED BRIDGE OPENING

An opening event that even the event specialists from GAHRENS + BATTERMANN don't see every day: A new cable-stayed bridge has been approved for traffic in the Hessian town of Raunheim. An extraordinary opening event was required for this extraordinary setting with a top quality sound design outdoors for 4,000 spectators.

An overview of the project:

Location:

  • Raunheim


Requirements:

  • As well as providing the technology, the G+B professionals were also responsible for the traverse structure and the design of the covered stage.
  • As well as the challenging attachment of the technical equipment to the 130 metre long bridge with its 51 metre high support pylons, the main focus was on coming up with an extraordinary sound design for the 4000 visitors to the event on the wide-ranging outdoor area.

You don't see a bridge like this very often in your lifetime.

Highlights:

  • GAHRENS + BATTERMANN designed and produced an impressive light and audio show for the inauguration of the bridge which put the architectural elements of the bridge in the spotlight with a colour-intensive spectacle.
  • A sound design with audio time code that had been specially designed for the event synchronously controlled the lighting system. The Smart Fiber fibre-optic system with its outstanding robustness was used for routing the signals throughout the system.
  • The dynamic, partially pre-programmed light setting did not just provide impressive illumination but also made it possible to specially emphasise the individual architectural elements of the bridge.
  • In order to ensure that the spectators at the back did not lose out, the media experts integrated video and projection technology. Among other things, the mayor's opening speech was shown on the screen.
  • As well as providing the technology, the G+B professionals were also responsible for the traverse structure and the design of the covered stage.
