County Turf supplied its Sports Greenscape turf for a new pitch at the Parken Stadium in Denmark, the home of FC Copenhagen.
The specialist turf was transported from Scunthorpe via Immingham to Esjberg by boat, and then by road to Copenhagen. The transport operation involved 21 articulated lorries over a 12-hour period.
The turf was precision-harvested in 1250mm wide rolls. Each roll weighed 1200kg. Frost covers were used to prevent the turf from freezing, as the temperature reached as low as -10° in Denmark.
The turf was successfully installed by night over 12 hours.
The pitch was ready for playing 10 hours later.
Two days after installation, the pitch hosted the UEFA cup tie of FC Copenhagen versus Manchester City FC.
