Cummins Power Generation and Trade Promoters Limited (TPL) are providing power for the floodlights at all three stadiums used for the 2011 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka.
The tournament ranks fourth among the world's most-viewed sporting events. The floodlights enable the matches to be played at night.
The tenth set of matches since the tournament began in 1975, the 2011 Cricket World Cup is being played in Bangladesh and India as well as in Sri Lanka, from 12 February to 2 April. The three venues in Sri Lanka are the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, the Muttiah Muralitharan International Cricket Stadium in Kandy and the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota.
The stadiums in Kandy and Hambantota were constructed specifically for the World Cup.
"Winning the contract to supply power for this prestigious sporting event is a tribute to the reliability and advanced technology of Cummins Power Generation systems, and to the technical expertise and service provided by TPL, our partner in Sri Lanka," says Don Puar, director, Asia Pacific commercial product business for Cummins Power Generation.
