Client Major Australian event lighting company
Location Sydney and Melbourne, Australia
Provide power for 50 kitchens, lighting and sound stages in a city location
Who do you come to when you need help with a unique, power-hungry event like the Night Noodle Markets?
Leading Australian event lighting company 32 Hundred Lighting came to us. The challenge was immense. Multiple kitchens use substantial power, with unpredictable spikes as the crowds come and go. But as you may have guessed from the event company’s name, we weren’t just powering 50 kitchens. As well as sound stages, front and back-of-house facilities, lighting and video screens, the entire space was transformed by a series of visually stunning and immersive light installations.
Working to a critical delivery date, we needed to provide continual power, 18 hours a day. And all this at the heart of Sydney and Melbourne city centres, creating extreme logistical challenges, especially for refuelling.

Working closely with 32 Hundred Lighting, we created a bespoke system of seven generators ranging from 125 to 200kVa. Our experienced engineers knew that this would offer the best combination of flexibility and reliability given the nature of the site and energy demands. Our unique remote monitoring system played a key role. The experts at our Remote Operations Centre were on hand 24/7, reading and responding to live data.
This meant we could anticipate and rectify problems before they happened.
Our team also meticulously planned and completed delivery to the tight schedule required, allowing for traffic and logistical issues at this busy city-centre location.
