SPORTS AND EVENT BUILDINGS
High demands on technology and design
At football matches or concerts, there are often more people in a stadium than there are in some small towns! This results in high demands on the design of sports and event buildings, which must meet the needs of spectators and athletes or artists alike. Whether as a sports floor or turf heating, skating rink, in the sanitary area, or in the air conditioning technology, high-performance piping systems from aquatherm offer individual and durable solutions in these applications.
Swimming Pool Y-40
Four-star Hotel Terme Millepini in Montegrotto Terme, Padua (Italy) boasts the thermal swimming pool, Y-40. The pool is one of the deepest diving pools in the world, reaching a depth of 40 meters. This unique pool allows divers to train under optimal conditions and participate in training courses.
aquatherm supplied the distribution pipes for the thermal water supply and the pool’s heating. Thanks to its absolute corrosion resistance, in combination with a high dimensional stability and reduced expansion at high temperatures, aquatherm blue pipe was the perfect choice for the distribution of thermal water in Y-40.

Dacia Arena, a football stadium in Udine, Italy, was called Stadio Friuli until 2016, and is the home stadium of the Udinese Calcio football club. Built in 1976, it underwent renovations from 2013 to 2015. Among other things, a turf heating system made of aquatherm blue pipe was installed on approximately 9,000 square meters.
Turf heating complies with UEFA’s current stadium infrastructure regulations and ensures that the football field can be used in adverse weather conditions, such as snow and frozen ground. The use of aquatherm blue pipe system for turf heating ensures a significant improvement of the playing conditions and increases the growth of the grass.

Wanda Metropolitano stadium
The Wanda Metropolitano is a football stadium in the Spanish capital, Madrid. The facility was built from 1990 to 1994. It initially offered space for a total of 20,500 spectators. During the renovation work from 2011 to 2017, the venue was transformed into a larger, more accommodating stadium with 67,703 covered seats and grandstands leading up to the sidelines. The renovations made Wanda Metropolitano the third largest stadium in Spain. Since September 2017, it has been home to the Atlético Madrid football club.
As part of the large-scale renovation, a new fresh water supply was installed. For this installation, aquatherm supplied its aquatherm green pipe to ensure hygienic, optimum drinking water quality.
