Cat® Entertainment Services tackles Old Man Winter to ensure national football championship broadcast and events ran smoothly.
Neither ice nor record-breaking cold could keep Cat Entertainment Services from delivering on its promise to supply clean, reliable power to FOX Sports at the big game this past Sunday. The power requirements for the broadcast had been determined months in advance by the Cat Team and addressed with attention to every detail. On game day, their elite combination of Caterpillar® generator power and technical proficiency made all the difference.
In addition to the FOX Sports broadcast, Cat Entertainment Services supplied the power, heating and technical services at various pre-game and corporate hospitality events. Fans and officials attending these activities at Cowboys Stadium and throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area remained informed, entertained and comfortable. Although it took Dallas natives and visiting football fans by surprise, the Cat Entertainment technicians—unfazed by the abnormally wintry weather—had no problem coordinating the transmission of more than 16 MW of power through almost 39 miles of cable. That’s enough energy to power a community of 400,000 households!
Following the big game, Cat Entertainment Services’ February schedule includes other high-profile sports broadcast assignments, such as power for the NBA's All Star Game, NASCAR's Speed Week and the Daytona 500. Also in February, Cat Entertainment Services will provide back-up power for the live Grammy broadcast and remote power for the re-start of U2’s world tour, which kicks off in South Africa.
