When the eyes of the whole world are turned towards Sochi and thousands of athletes and visitors fill the city by the Black Sea, serious pressure will be on the pumps. Once again, Grundfos has supplied the main part of all the pumps contributing to keep a great sporting event going.
The whole world is watching as athletes compete in all the different winter events in the South Russian city Sochi. A whole new part of town has been constructed in order to accommodate the thousands of athletes, visitors and journalists, who will be present at the games. And it takes long-term planning preparing an event of such great proportions.
“Grundfos has participated throughout the process. Our innovative products and solutions have been integrated into the construction of all the impressive buildings. Here, they will help provide the utmost comfort by using the smallest amount of energy possible. In this way, Grundfos helps in making the games greener”, Group Executive Vice President Søren Ø. Sørensen explains.
Whether it is a matter of hot or cold water, air conditioning, waste water, firefighting or disinfection, the pumps and solutions installed are from Grundfos.
“Through targeted efforts, qualified employees and innovative products, Grundfos has succeeded in gaining a special status as supplier in regards to supplying for the greatest global events”, says Søren Ø. Sørensen. In this context, he mentions football events in Brazil and South Africa and the games in London and Beijing.
The need for high-performance pumps will be greatest during the hectic weeks of competitions and many visitors. But the installations from Grundfos will work for many years to come and thereby play a part in ensuring high comfort for the inhabitants through very low energy consumption.
