Myrtha and Anti Wave contribute to Southeast Asian Games success
One of the lesser known aquatic industry success stories of 2011 was the development of the Jakabaring Aquatic Stadium for the recent 26th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.
Located in the Jakabaring Sport City in the South Sumatran capital of Palembang, the Aquatic Centre was the main venue for aquatic sport during the SEA Games.
Held from 11th to 23rd November, the Games were co-hosted by Jakarta and Palembang, and marked Indonesia's first-ever attempt to host a major event outside the capital.
The Games were not only a competitive success but have also gone on to provide a lasting sporting legacy for the region.
The development of the Jakabaring Aquatic Stadium was particularly significant, not least because the development of the facility was completed in just nine months!
The completed facility, supplied and constructed by Singapore-based Spectrum Imaging included:
• A 51.5 x 26 x 3 metre deep (Myrtha Overflow Ceramic) competition pool fitted with the Strahlenturbulenz recycle system. The pool catered for swimming activities and water polo games;
• A 20 x 25 x 5 metre deep (RenovAction Overflow Ceramic) diving pool also fitted with the Strahlenturbulenz recycle system.
The competition pool was then equipped with a 27 x 1.5 x 1.5 metre Anti Wave moveable bulkhead, Anti Wave Maxi racing lanes, Anti Goals plus full FINA polo set up, backstroke, false start poles and all pooldeck fittings.
In the diving pool, Spectrum Imaging supplied Duraflex diving boards and RoughTex Mats on the platform.
With these accessories fitted, Spectrum Imaging then installed a complete Omega Timing System with two scoreboards - one monochrome and one colour.
Spectrum Imaging Managing Director Henry Fung, a member of FINA officials, with experience of running swimming events across Southeast Asia, managed the project, then taught and supervised local managers and staff in running the facility and the aquatic events at the SEA Games.
The Myrtha Pools installation marks the third time, after the 2003 and 2007 Games, that Myrtha has been awarded the supply and construction of the pools for the SEA games.
