Context

The transformation of key areas outside Aston Villa's football stadium is set to include demolishing existing buildings and site clearance work in readiness for a new development, which could accommodate a superstore/museum and a possible hotel. Whilst all details of this new project are yet the be decided, work has pressed ahead in upgrading the existing stadium facilities and maintenance infrastructure.

Requirement

As with all high profile sporting venues with a global audience, the ground staff at Villa Park work tirelessly to keep the pitch in first-call condition. It is a continuous exercise given the relentless match schedule from August to May which can be made easier by having access to electricity supplies right around the pitch perimeter for use in the periods between games.

Solution

The pitch-side electricity supply infrastructure has been upgraded with power units from Pop Up Power Supplies. The company has supplied 16 PUPS01 pop-up, retractable power units which will be used to provide power for the UV lighting needed to promote the growth of grass. They are also to be used for the ongoing maintenance and repair of the pitch.

The UV lighting spans the width of the pitch and the retractable service power units provide a secure and efficient power supply for all maintenance equipment as and when it is needed.

The half-tonne units are safely submerged out of sight beneath the perimeter of the pitch provided by Hewitt Sports Turf. When the units are required, they can be cleverly raised out of the ground for maintenance equipment and UV lights to be connected.

A key benefit of the pop up power units is that when they are not in use they are simply lowered back into the ground, and a section of turf is laid over the lid to give a seamless appearance to the pitch area. On matchdays, therefore, the presence of the power units is virtually zero.

The PUPS01 pop up power unit is one of a wide range of outdoor power solutions available from Pop Up Power Supplies. It provides several different retractable service unit options along with in-ground power units, which are accessible via a lockable flip lid, and bollards with integrated electricity and water connection points. This makes the range suitable for use in all kinds of public spaces from heritage sites, marketplaces, town centres, parks, universities and sports stadia.
