In the sporting spotlight with Grundfos

Published:  04 September, 2018

Grundfos, Tollcross Park

With the sporting spotlight on Glasgow for the second time in recent years, this historic city is once again acting as a major sports event host, this time for the European Championships. These Euros, that will see 4,500 people compete for medals, are being split between two cities - Glasgow and Berlin, with Berlin hosting the athletes and Glasgow the aquatics, rowing, gymnastics, cycling, triathlon and golf.

Two of the major focal points will be Tollcross Park, the only 50m pool in Glasgow, that has already played host to swimming and aquatic events four years ago and underwent a major refurbishment pre-Commonwealth Games. This saw the addition of a 6 lane 50m second pool that can be used for a variety of purposes, plus the moveable floor means that this pool is now the ideal place for a range of aquatic activities. Grundfos Pumps were involved from the earliest stages and supplied all the pumps required for the upgrade.

The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in the East End of Glasgow will be the focus for the cycling during the championships. The pump solutions supplied by Grundfos will deliver the HVAC needs to these venues, as well as ensuring that the all water boosting requirements are met, regardless of demand. Additionally, Grundfos also supplied the fire suppression system that will keep this site safe and secure.
