AUSTIN, Texas, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Hellas Construction is proud to announce its expansion into the Caribbean bringing lighting solutions to cricket venues in preparation for the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World Cup.

Partnering with Abacus Lighting Ltd and M3 Innovation, Hellas Construction embarks on two transformative projects aimed at enhancing the spectator experience and advancing energy efficiency standards in sports infrastructure.

At Kensington Oval Cricket Club in Barbados, Hellas Construction will oversee the installation of state-of-the-art LED lighting, encompassing the demolition of existing structures, excavation of new bases, and erection of 200-foot poles equipped with 438 MAKO LED luminaires. Simultaneously, Hellas Construction is spearheading the lighting upgrade at Arnos Vale Cricket Pitch in Saint Vincent, collaborating closely with local authorities and cricket boards to elevate the venue's capabilities for international tournaments. 

Led by Wayne Huntsinger, Vice President of Sports Lighting, the division is poised to revolutionize sports facilities' lighting capabilities, ensuring optimal visibility and performance for athletes and spectators alike. Huntsinger expressed excitement about the venture, stating, "We are thrilled to be part of building quality sports facilities under the Hellas brand. Proper lighting adds to the utility of a field by allowing customers to access their fields any time of day."

"These projects mark a significant milestone for Hellas Construction as we extend our reach into the Caribbean region," said Reed J Seaton, CEO and President at Hellas Construction. "We are honored to partner with esteemed organizations like Abacus and M3 Innovation to deliver advanced lighting solutions that not only enhance the venue experience but also contribute to sustainability efforts."

For the first time in nine World Cups, cricket will be played in parts of the United States at the T20 Men's World Cup. The West Indies and the United States are co-hosting this biennial event from June 1-29, 2024. England will try to defend their title as World Cup champions after defeating Pakistan in the final of the previous edition. Canada and Uganda qualified for the Men's T20 World Cup for the first time and the United States is also participating for the first time by virtue of being a co-host with the West Indies.
