The two original screens that had been installed in 1992 were replaced by a single LED surface measuring 3,380 square feet. In addition to the scoreboard, Solotech supplied and installed an electrical distribution system, a fiber video distribution system, image processors and a sports scoring system.
“It was a great challenge to integrate this new screen into an existing structure within tight deadlines while ensuring the safety of those working at a height,” explained Alexandre Pecqueux, the Solotech project manager. The deliverables were met mainly through preventive evaluation of the equipment: “Solotech has the advantage of having a very large workshop and this enabled us to do the preparation in our offices, thus limiting risks and interventions on the installation site,” continued Pecqueux.
As for Maurice Landry, Vice-President of Construction and Maintenance at the Olympic Park, he was delighted with the result: “We’re satisfied with the work done by Solotech. All of the work was carried out according to our quality requirements and deadlines. The relationship between the two organizations has been very smooth, and the work was performed according to our expectations.”
