More than 20 countries hungry for medals. Over 4,000 athletes will be giving their very best. A total of 31 sports that will all vie for becoming the king of the championships. And 10 days of non-stop competition. One of the most eagerly awaited for sports events by the Olympic Movement has arrived.
A few weeks ago we spoke about Fluidra’s expertise in the design and construction of Olympic pools. At Fluidra, we have extensive know-how in building competition pools and we have long-standing experience, so little by little we have been able to rise to any challenge more quickly and efficiently. What’s more, we seek excellence and this helps us with the use of new technologies and new equipment for saving water and being more energy efficient. Our constant drive to improve is one of main goals.
This year, we have been entrusted with the pools for the 18 th Mediterranean Games, which have just started and are being held in Tarragona, Spain. Fluidra Engineering designed and built the main pool for the competition, to be contended by 23 countries bordering on the Mediterranean Sea and other guest countries, such as Portugal, Slovenia and Serbia.
Building work on the outdoor pool located in the CampClar municipal sports complex began in January of this year and was completed in record time: two weeks ahead of schedule.
In almost three years of existence, Fluidra Engineering has been entrusted with the design and construction of ten Olympic pools, of which two (the one in Jakarta and the one in Tarragona) have a moving bulwark as a special feature, which turns a pool into a multi- purpose, highly versatile one.
We thought you would be interested to find out a little more about the pool for the Games, so together with our colleagues from Fluidra Engineering we have prepared a short summary that will tell you everything about this facility:
The pool currently belongs to the town of Tarragona, but once the competition is over it will form part of the neighboring sports complex, so it will be used by all of its members.
