Delta’s precision timing makes for another spectacular world record in RAK.
Delta Sound was honored to be asked by Fireworks by Grucci, to provide their show communications and firing timecode solutions for the annual new yearâ€™s eve fireworks at Al Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
This yearâ€™s attempt saw the event secure the records for the â€˜longest chain of fireworksâ€™ covering 4.6km using 11,284 firework devices. As well the â€˜longest straight-line of fireworksâ€™ spanning 13km of the island. The event made headlines last year by clenching the world record for the â€˜largest aerial firework shellâ€™, which weighed 1,087.26kg and reached a height of around 1,127 meters.
Deltaâ€™s team this year was headed up by Technical Manager Liam McGrath, with support from Jude Menezes, one of Deltaâ€™s up and coming communications engineers, and Mark Gesmundo, our in-house Radio Technician.
McGrath said “Last year, Delta provided similar services to the event, and each year the bar continues to be lifted higher, with no sign of stopping. Al Marjan Island and surrounding areas has proved itself to be an extremely impressive venue for a show such as this and allows people to get up close and personal to the fireworks.”
Working with Phil Grucci and his dedicated team gave Delta Sound the perfect opportunity to provide all the systems that the company specialise in. It was the perfect blend of all areas and a true pleasure to be able to assist in making these shows happen.
McGrath said “There is nothing quite in the same league as being involved in such spectacular shows such as these, and it is an absolute privilege to be able to work alongside a team such as Grucci, to be a small part of putting together what turned out to be two new Guinness World Records!”
