Fluidra, the multinational, Spanish-listed company focused on developing innovative products, services, and IoT solutions for the residential and commercial pool markets globally, will provide the competition and diving pools at the 20th Sukma Games in Malaysia.
The project consists of the renovation of one competition pool (50,1 x 20,9 m) and one diving pool (28 x 22 m) and is valued at over €1.1M. The popular biannual Malaysian national multisport championships will attract some 3,000 athletes, officials and volunteers and will be held in June 2020.
Fluidra will renovate the existing pools at the Aquatic Center in Johor Bahru using the Skypool short panel system for competition pools. This system enables existing facilities to be adapted to the requirements of the International Swimming Federation safely, quickly and efficiently. It will also be responsible for the competition equipment, filtration and disinfection of the pools.

They will also supply the upcoming 13th PORA Games (Jantho, Indonesia) in 2019.
Fluidra was also recently awarded the contract to design and install an Olympic swimming pool for the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima (Peru).
