Fluidra Skypools to be used for new Indonesian aquatic centre

Fluidra Skypools to be used for new Indonesian aquatic centre
June 5, 2019

Two competition pools will be constructed by Fluidra at the Sentani Aquatic Arena in the Indonesia province of Papua using Skypool panels.

The venue is due to host the aquatic competitions during National Sports Week in 2020, an event held every four years featuring athletes from different disciplines drawn from all Indonesian provinces.

Fluidra will also provide a warm-up pool fitted with a spa, filtration, pumping, disinfection and competition accessories for the venue.

The project includes the design and installation of a 51.2 metre by 25 metre by 3 metre Olympic swimming and water polo pool to be fitted with an automatic bulkhead unit and a 20 metre by 25 metre by 5 metre Olympic diving pool using Skypool panels to be fitted with a spa.

Skypool is AstralPool’s range of easy-to-assemble prefabricated panel pools that can be adapted to fit existing and new infrastructures. Galvanized in zinc, they are protected against rusting, safe and long-lasting.

All pools will be constructed in line with FINA requirements. Filtration and pumping for the pools will be provided by Praga filters and KIVU pumps, while ultraviolet automatic equipment will be installed to disinfect the pools.

The company will also provide competition accessories which will be used during the championships.

A Skypool was used at the FINA World Championships held in Melbourne in 2007 at the Rod Laver Arena, after which the panels were repurposed for regional council pools.

Skypools have also been used for many other international competitions, including four pools for the aquatic competitions of the 2018 Asian Games which took place in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.

Fluidra installed another Olympic-size Skypool at Jantho in the Indonesian province of Aceh.
