The bushfires that the Victorian community have experienced this season has been horrendous. For those affected their lives have changed forever. But through from the smoke and ashes has emerged a renewed sense of community spirit across the entire nation. The selfless response that the Australian people have shown has been good and the ‘RISE Bushfire Relief Benefit Concert’ at Healesville Racecourse is an example of such generosity.
With 15 bands and solo artists playing as well as Kids Rides and Hot Rod displays the RISE Concert wants to raise much needed funds to rebuild and to let everyone in the community put their minds elsewhere for the day, relax and have a great time with their family, friends and community.
When the event organisers approached Active Power Management, a division of Active Air Rentals , to supply some temporary lighting towers there was never a question as to whether they would answer the call. Providing diesel powered temporary lighting towers pales into complete insignificance when compared with the generosity and dedication shown by all involved.
The lighting towers provided were heavy duty mining Spec towers that are designed for rugged conditions. Their five 1500W globes illuminate a large area while being powered by a silenced three cylinder Perkins diesel engine. The lighting towers also have additional 15A single phase power outlets so that any additional power can be utilised for other applications and the lighting tower can be used as a generator during the day when the lights are not required.
The hydraulic controlled mast makes set up quick and simple and the pitch and rotation of the light can be controlled from the ground when the lights are in operation. The applications for lighting towers are events, mining sites and road works.
