Olympic progress highlights need for electrical courses

The progress being made on the Olympic Park construction site could serve as a reminder of the need to employ top-quality tradespersons who have taken electrical courses on large-scale projects.

According to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), the lighting towers have now all been lifted into place atop the Olympic Stadium - the flagship venue for the London 2012 Olympic Games, which will take place from July 27th to August 12th.

It stated that the 14 towers each weigh 34 tonnes and were designed with "integrated walkways, access, power supplies and cabling and lighting".

They will illuminate the field of play and enable the capturing of high definition footage.

Commenting on the news, Olympics minister Tessa Jowell said: "The light emitted will ensure that not a moment of action is missed by spectators and TV audiences."

The ODA added that a team of electricians installed and tested the floodlights on the ground before they were lifted to the top of the stadium.
