Grundfos shares in 2018 sporting success

Grundfos, arenas

At the beginning of 2018, there were very few expectations that the year would turn out to be a memorable one for English football fans. However, as soon as the whistle blew in Russia on the world’s most watched sporting tournaments, the expectations along with the temperature, rose dramatically.

Within the venues that were spread across 1,800 miles and 12 arenas, many of which were purpose built, were a total of 859 Grundfos pumps. These units quietly played their part in the unfolding drama by delivering essential services including the water supply, ventilation, irrigation and drainage, cooling and fire protection.

Losing to Croatia in the semi-finals was painful, but this has been somewhat redressed when England beat them at Wembley (another Grundfos supported venue) to reach the final stages of the UEFA National League that will be played in June.

Grundfos are delighted to be playing their part at these and many major sporting locations, both at home and abroad.
