NSC “Olimpiyskiy” starts warming the pitch
Today, on the 22nd of February, 2017 the biggest sports and cultural arena of Ukraine – NSC “Olimpiyskiy” - starts warming its emerald field with special mobile warming platforms. Two platforms can replace the natural sunlight for pitch in autumn and winter seasons.
- Each of the platforms can warm 700 sq. m. of the pitch. Sizes of the pitch of NSC “Olimpiyskiy” is 7 887,5 sq. m., thus every 14 hours artificial “Sun” can “feed” 2 100 sq. m. of the pitch which is the 4th part of the whole field. Despite massive sizes of platforms, they don’t cause any damage to the pitch since they were made out of aluminum. So, despite the weather conditions and the protracted winter, we will be ready to host the match against "Olimpik", which is to be held on the 4th of March, - Viktor Anisimov, Director for External Affairs of NSC “Olimpiyskiy”, noted.
We remind that the same mobile warming platforms are successfully used at the stadiums around the World. The idea of mobile warming platform was developed in 1997 in Trondheim city, Norway during the Champions league match at “Lerkendal” stadium where the match was played in winter season on bad lawn. It was the date when the mobile warming platform was developed and patented in order to make growth of the lawn better.
See you in the stands!
