Grundfos wrestles with pumping solution for Olympic Games martial-arts venue
Published:  01 July, 2004

Almost 150 pumps have been supplied by Grundfos for the Ano Liossia Olympic Hall, the venue for wrestling and judo 9 km from the Athens Olympic Village.

The pumps support the water supply, air conditioning (vital with temperatures regularly exceeding 40C in August) wastewater and fire systems.

Working closely with the contractor from an early stage of development,Grundfos devised a working partnership to provide a bespoke solution.

Wrestling dates back to 708 BC, when the first wrestling match was recorded at the ancient Olympics. The martial-arts principles from which judo derives are chronicled as early as 720 AD.
