For Sail Bremerhaven 2015, A&O Creative created light shows in the harbour. The lighting, laser and pyro displays enthused the international spectators.

Every five years, Bremerhaven is given over to sailors. This year, over 250 ships from 20 nations dropped anchor in the harbour to participate in the Sail Bremerhaven festival, one of the largest gatherings of windjammers and traditional sailing ships in the world. The wide variety of vessels, ranging from schooners to cutters, the flotillas, the open ships, the live bands and the wide variety of culinary delights on offer drew thousands of visitors to the quayside of the coastal town. Commissioned by Erlebnis Bremerhaven GmbH, the creative department of A&O Technology designed, programmed and realized a fourteen-minute, colour-dynamic show entitled ‘Weser Lights’. Over a dozen searchlights were installed at the Weser lido (Weser-Strandbad) for the five-day international windjammer festival. FALCON BEAM 7000W and 3000W searchlights as well as RGB and YAG lasers were among the devices used. A&O Creative together with teams from Comet Feuerwerk and laserfabrik showlaser coordinated the lighting and laser elements with the altitude fireworks. With its musical accompaniment, the light, laser and pyrotechnic show illuminated the coast three evenings in a row. This new attraction proved one of the highlights of this year’s festival.

In addition, A&O Creative staged a light show in the old harbour in which FALCON FLOWER 3000W and FALCON CMY LED-VIDEO LED/xenon hybrid searchlights performed each evening their elaborate choreography in the night sky. Their beams reflected in the harbour basin emulated the potpourri of masts that was such a striking feature of the cityscape throughout Sail Bremerhaven. At the end of the festival, the organizers announced that over 1.2 million visitors from all over the world had witnessed this display of the largest and most beautiful sailing ships in the world. Sail Bremerhaven was opened by its patron, German president Joachim Gauck.
