MA for Polimeks

New Year welcomed with grandMA2

Polimeks İnşaat ve Sanayi A.Ş. is a Turkish construction company based in Istanbul that primarily operates in Turkmenistan, Turkey, Russia and Kazakhstan. According to the American magazine Engineering News Record Polimeks occupies 59th place in the ranking of 225 largest international contractors.

For their recent New Year Show in the Turkmenistan Ice Hockey Arena in Ashgabat lighting designer and programmer Umut Yurtseven, who is just 16 years old, used 1 x grandMA2 full-size, 1 x grandMA2 light and 1 x MA NPU (Network Processing Unit) controlling dozens of moving lights amongst others 46 x Claypaky Sharpy, 24 x Claypaky Alpha Spot HPE 1200 and 24 x Clay Paky Alpha Wash 1200.

“In my opinion MA Lighting manufactures the best lighting control solutions in the industry”, stated Yurtseven. “The continuous development of the software is just great as we, the users, can evolve our shows further and further and let our imagination run free. It gives me the power but also the possibilities to create the shows I want to create. Over the years I’ve become pretty familiar with MA’s products – I started using the grandMA2 onPC software when I was nine years old so you can say I grew up with the system.”

Serdar Özgür worked as operator. Phantom Event Engineering provided the lighting equipment. SF SES VE Isik Sistemleri A.S. is MA Lighting’s exclusive distributor in Turkey.
