Russian Stadiums Choose Rain Bird Irrigation Systems

Azusa, California, United States: Over the past few years, Russia has welcomed many top athletes from around the world, and this month the top soccer teams will be competing in both newly built and renovated Russian soccer stadiums.
Rain Bird Corporation has been selected to provide the irrigation systems for eight of the 12 soccer stadiums, each seating between 35,000 to 80,000 fans. With a focus on water conservation, these new venues offer the world’s best footballers superior field conditions.
“We are honoured that our irrigation systems have been chosen to help create beautiful soccer fields for the people of Russia to enjoy for years to come,” said Jean-Paul Crouzoulon, International Business Manager for Rain Bird, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“We feel that supporting these sports venues in Russia and Brazil, as well as in other countries, is a privilege that creates opportunities to expand our relationships within the sports field industry.”
Some of the Russian projects included are the Luzhniki and Otkrytie Arenas in Moscow, as well as Rostov Arena, Volgograd Arena, Samara Arena, Mordovia Arena, Nizhny Novgorod Stadium and Kaliningrad Stadium, built throughout Russia.
Each project had unique irrigation system requirements and challenges, and given the large size of these projects, the design and installation processes were complex.
Rain Bird’s comprehensive line of commercial irrigation solutions addressed each project’s unique challenges. Rain Bird Europe’s sales and technical team worked alongside a strong network of experienced distributors and contractors to ensure each project met high quality standards in a timely fashion.
The projects used a variety of Rain Bird products including EAGLE 950E Series Rotors, 8005 stainless steel rotors and PGA and PEB Series valves. ESP-LXD Controllers, IQ Desktop central control software and the WR2 wireless rain and freeze sensor were also installed to ensure optimum water distribution, even with unexpected weather changes.
“Being a part of these large stadium projects is very exciting and rewarding for our team,” said Denis Petiteau, Rain Bird Product Manager for Europe. “We look forward to sharing our expertise in water management by supporting many more projects in the future.”
