Cat Entertainment Services Powers 9-11 Memorial Tribute

September 11, 2008 03:29

Entertainment Services transformers powering the searchlights bring the “Tribute in Light” to life.Two beams of light representing the Twin Towers mark the seventh anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Entertainment Services / New Jersey had the honor to provide power to the annual art installation, "Tribute in Light." Staged at the World Trade Center, the work is comprised of 88 searchlights that create two vertical columns of light to represent the two fallen towers. 

Originally lit March 11, 2002—six months after the attack—the display ran until April 14 of that year. The project was launched again September 11, 2003 to mark the second anniversary of the attack, and has been done every year since. It stays lit from dusk to dawn and can be seen from over 60 miles away.

A long-time client of Cat Entertainment Services had been using another supplier to power it up. When that supplier was no longer able to meet their needs, the client turned to CES for the solution.

On September 4, CES technicians reported to Ground Zero in New York City to install the power units for the event. The setup included multiple generators, electrical switchgear and more than three miles of electrical cable along with an extensive rigging package to bring cables up to the top of parking structure.
