In tennis, you’re allowed two faults before losing the point. In the pump world, faults – and certainly not double faults – are not an option. So when the builders of the Olympic tennis venue in Athens needed a trustworthy and qualified partner for their project, Grundfos was selected as their doubles partner.
The 2004 Olympic tennis events will be staged at the Olympic Tennis Centre in the Athens Olympic Sports Complex. Before this, however, a new central tennis court with seating for up to 8,000 spectators needed to be planned and built.The construction of support facilities under the seating tiers of the central court including locker rooms, a medical centre, administration offices, a VIP lounge and so on. In addition, the outlying courts and training grounds needed to be reconstructed.
The Grundfos Solution
Over 200 Grundfos pumps cover a wide range of applications including water supply, heating and air-conditioning, wastewater and fire fighting. Leading the way are almost 160 UPS circulator pumps, with a couple dozen AP-and KP wastewater pumps also on the team among others.
From the initial score of love-love until game, set and match has been called in the gold-medal match, Grundfos pumps and pumping systems support the Olympic Tennis Venue in the best possible way. The hard-hitting and innovative player from Denmark has served another ace!
