Myrtha Pools equip 2015 Pacific Games venue in Papua New Guinea

Myrtha Pools equip 2015 Pacific Games venue in Papua New Guinea
July 26, 2015

Part of the development of sporting infrastructure for Port Moresby’s hosting of the 2015 Pacific Games, the Taurama Aquatic and Leisure Centre was designed by Peddle Thorpe Architecture of New Zealand to include two swimming pools equipped with Myrtha Pools technology.

The main outdoor 50 metre competition pool was equipped with a movable bulkhead to shorten the pool to 25 metre for international standard short course competition, as well as to provide flexibility in the arrangement for elite swimmer training and public use after the 2015 Pacific Games.

The second pool built by Myrtha was a separate 25 metre space required for use as a warm up pool during competition events.

This pool was designed to have a depth ranging from 900mm to 1400mm with a wheelchair ramp access, so the pool can be used as a learn-to-swim pool for children, as well as a hydrotherapy pool for people with disability outside of competition time.

Both of these pools are set into a family oriented landscape with Myrtha also constructing a splash and play area alongside play areas for family activities.

The facility has been designed to meet the highest international standards required to host a major Games but with the development of future champions and community use in mind.
