- Custom Solution Solves “Unsolvable” Indy 500 Radio Problem
- United Rentals meets PHVAC needs for 250,000 attendee music festival
During the Indianapolis 500, the largest single-day sporting event on the planet, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) staff rely on radios to coordinate every aspect of their work, including stage setup, merchandise sales, fire and rescue, security, safety patrols and housekeeping. But for more than a decade, the radio system failed to deliver on race day. Due to significant interference, some parts of the facility became unreachable. The radio vendor for IMS said the problem simply couldn’t be solved.
United Rentals had a breakthrough idea: Move the radio equipment away from the central pagoda, and all the nearby antennae, to the relatively remote Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. It used service monitors to understand the different frequencies operating in different parts of the venue, then brought in a fully digital trunking system along with radios. To ensure functionality on race day, it tested the system during smaller events.
On race day, the communications system performed flawlessly. IMS’s logistics manager was able to communicate via radio with operations staff members he couldn’t reach in previous years. Clear communication at the push of a button improved his ability to keep track of people and gear. “The positive feedback has been overwhelming,” he noted.
A customer in the Midwest needed a streamlined rental process to meet their power and climate control needs for a large music festival with more than 250,000 attendees.
The customer needed a variety of temporary power and climate solutions to accommodate a large crowd and changing weather. With a congested installation site and the need for both air conditioning and heating, the customer needed a fast, safe and agile solution.
United Rentals partnered with the customer after sizing the electrical and HVAC need to provide a trailer customized with all of the climate control, power generation, power transformer and distribution equipment needed. The trailer was properly outfitted with equipment and accessories needed to interface between the air conditioner and event tent.
