PR XR 480 BWS Helps Launch India’s First Luxury Liner
India – Angriya, India's first luxury cruise ship, which will sail between Mumbai and Goa, was commissioned at a formal inauguration ceremony in October.
Launched as a joint venture by Mumbai Port Trust and Angriya Sea Eagle Pvt Ltd., the flagging off took place in Mumbai, when PR Lighting customer, Goa-based Reynold Event & Promotions was sub-contracted to provide all the lighting by event management firm Wizcraft.
The company recently purchased 12 of PR Lighting’s XR 480 BWS hybrid moving heads, pressing them straight into action for the occasion. They were used principally to colour wash the ship and provide gobo projections, and were mounted on platforms at dock-side, that lined the front of the ship.
The XR 480 BWS is designed to provide three features in one (beam, wash and spot) from an advanced 480W lamp matched with a superb optical system. And according to Reynold Event & Promotions’ director John Remedios: “We were extremely impressed with the beam quality, effects and gobos.”
The attendees of between 600-800 people were transfixed by the gentle looping of the colour movement throughout the official launch ceremony. “The XR 480 BWS was a big success,” admits John Remedios. “Since this was a dock location surrounded by sea, the light beams could be seen from quite a long distance away. That part of Goa is generally pretty quiet, so everyone knew that something big was happening.”
The order of 12 XR 480 BWS was Reynold’s first from the Chinese manufacturer, but it’s unlikely to be their last. “This event showed us that PR Lighting’s products can stand side by side with the best in the world,” Remedios confirmed. “Hopefully next time we will be talking about a show with 80-100 PR fixtures!”
