Fluidra builds two temporary pools for the European Aquatics Championships in RomeJune 16, 2022
The pools will be installed on the iconic site, the Foro Italico.
One of the pools will be 31 x 21 x 3 meters and will be used for synchronized swimming and the other of 17 x 17 x 6 meters will be for the high diving competition, where boards 20 and 27 meters high will be put in place.
Fluidra, the global leader in equipment and connected solutions in the pool and wellness sector, will be the company responsible for building two temporary pools for the European Aquatics Championships run by the European Swimming League (LEN) that will be held in Rome between 11 and 21 August.
Both of the pools will have premium location in the iconic area of the Foro Italico. The first will measure 31 x 21 x 3 meters, and be used for the synchronized swimming competition. The second, sized 17 x 17 x 6 meters, will be completely built using Skypool panels, and be used for the high diving competition.
The two pools, by the brands AstralPool and Zodiac, have been built and tested at Inquide’s production plant located in Polinyà (Barcelona). In addition to building these pools, Fluidra will also replace the filtration system of the Olympic pool that was built in the Foro Italico in 1936. This pool was fitted with an AstralPool filtration system by Fluidra following its latest upgrade.
Fluidra’s presence at the European Aquatics Championships in Rome falls within the framework of the collaboration agreement signed by Fluidra and LEN in August 2021. This four-year arrangement recognizes Fluidra as an Official Partner for temporary pools and equipment.
“We are very happy to be able to form part of the European Aquatics Championships run by LEN. The alliances that we are forging with the world’s main water sports organizations demonstrate our leading position in commercial pools that we hope to continue to shore up in the future”, highlighted José R. Fornieles, Fluidra’s General Manager of Commercial Pools, Wellness, Fountains & Lagoons for EMEA and LATAM.
