The Coliseum, London – Dimmer Upgrades

Bang on schedule, PTB completed the installation of the new dimmer system for English National Opera at the London Coliseum. In just five weeks, PTB removed the fifteen existing, problematic Strand SLD96 dimmer racks and replaced them with ten new ABD Eurodim Twin Tech racks, incorporating the DimSwitch modules that can operate as either dimmers or true non-dims. New containment was created and the existing wiring adapted to suit the new installation. PTB’s team even had enough time to fix some wiring faults that have existed since the previous installation was completed. “What the PTB team have achieved here is remarkable,” comments Kevin Sleep, ENO’s Head of Lighting. “It is a tribute to all of the that if the visiting companies who were in the theatre during the changeover hadn’t been told what was going on they would never have noticed that some a major project was underway. The new installation looks beautiful and is performing flawlessly; we can already feel it will serve us well for a long time to come.”
