Launch of Khalifa International Stadium,
first venue for 2022 Fifa World Cup Qatar.

Qatar World Cup stadium cooling ‘big success’

DOHA, May 22, 2017

The ground-breaking air-conditioning inside Khalifa International Stadium, Qatar’s first venue for 2022 Fifa World Cup, has been hailed a resounding success by organisers.  

Utilising an innovative cooling technology, which is 40 per cent more sustainable than existing techniques, temperatures for the 2017 Emir Cup final were brought down to 20 and 23 degrees Celsius respectively on the field of play and in the spectator areas, while the outside temperature was 37 degrees.   

Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), said: “It is proof of what we’ve always said. People thought the cooling technology was only a dream. The reality is it was in Al Sadd Club, and today it is in Khalifa International Stadium.”

“It is continuing, becoming something normal and deliverable, and the delivery is on the ground. It showcased the capabilities and the quality that we have.

“Everybody worked very hard, and delivered a stadium that is according to the standards that we promised for the World Cup. Operationally, the team has done a fantastic job, and it’s just the start.  

“There’s more to come, expect amazing. Today is the first milestone, but there’s more to come,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
