Again 18 million euro technology order for stadiums Euro 2012 in Poland
Gouda - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) has again obtained an order to provide technology solutions in one of the stadiums that will host the UEFA Euro 2012 Football Championships in Poland. Following previous orders for high-tech technical solutions in the Polish National Stadium in Warsaw and the Polish PGE Baltic Arena in Gdansk, Imtech has now been commissioned to supply all the technical solutions in the new stadium scheduled for construction in Wroclaw. This new order is worth approximately 18 million euro.
René van der Bruggen, CEO Imtech: ‘The power of the Imtech proposition - total technical solutions through the combination of electrical solutions, ICT (information and communication technology) and mechanical solutions - and our strong position in Poland have resulted in some major orders for the UEFA Euro 2012 Football Championships. Imtech will now be responsible for the technical solutions in the three most important Euro 2012 stadiums. In addition, Imtech is also providing the sustainable technology in the Olympic Stadium now being built in London and the high-tech fire safety systems in Sweden’s new national football stadium, the Swedbank Arena, currently under construction in Stockholm. Gradually Imtech is developing into a leading technology partner for stadiums and arenas throughout Europe.’
Following an efficiency assessment, the organisation’s original plan to renovate the former Olympic Stadium in Wroclaw was replaced by a decision to realise a brand new stadium with a seating capacity of almost 44,000. The stadium will play host to Euro 2012 group matches. Imtech will be responsible for the energy supply, climate control, heating, ventilation, sanitary and fire safety systems, the complete power supply (high, medium and low voltage), all electrical solutions, high-tech process control technology and the complete ICT infrastructure.
Polish National Stadium in Warsaw and PGE Baltic Arena in Gdansk
Imtech had previously been commissioned to provide the high-tech climate technology in the Polish National Stadium in Warsaw, which has a seating capacity of 55,000 and facilities for underground parking for approximately 1750 vehicles. The stadium will be a principal venue for Euro 2012 and will host the opening match, two group matches, a quarter-final and a semi-final. Imtech is also providing the high-tech climate technology, including innovative energy solutions, for the PGE Baltic Arena (seating capacity: 44,000). This stadium will host four matches during Euro 2012 (three group matches and one semi final). In the immediate area of the stadium a swimming pool, offices, shops, hotel and parking facilities for 6,500 cars will also be realised.
Olympic Stadium in London and Swedbank Arena in Stockholm
Imtech is also responsible for the extremely energy-efficient climate technology in the new sustainable Olympic Stadium for the 2012 Olympic Games in London (seating capacity: 80,000) and the high-tech sprinkler technology in Sweden’s new national football stadium, the Swedbank Arena in Stockholm (seating capacity: 50,000). This makes Imtech the only European technical services provider simultaneously working on five major stadiums in Europe.
