rain bird logoRain Bird Corp. has been selected to provide the irrigation systems for eight of the 12 Russian soccer stadiums, each seating between 35,000 to 80,000 fans.

“We are honored 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, Rain Bird international business manager. “We feel that supporting our 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 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 the 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.”
