Transstroy company, the general contractor for the construction of the stadium on Krestovsky Island began extensive works for installation of utilities. This is one of the most technologically sophisticated and extensive construction stages: over a thousand kilometers of cable will be routed at the facility, about 600 switchboards will be assembled and one of the largest data centers in the country will be launched.
First works for stadium’s utilities routing began in May and were deployed in full in July. Over the next 17 months installation of heating, sewerage, ventilation, electrical and low-voltage networks will be conducted at the facility. Volumes and complexity of the forthcoming works at the stadium in St. Petersburg is unprecedented for Russia and Eastern Europe.
The most extensive and complex part of communication networks – stadium’s electric networks. To provide electricity of the arena, over 1.250 km of cable will be laid and up to 250 km auxiliary metal structures will be assembled. Total allocated capacity of the stadium is 10 MW, for the distribution of electricity, which will be able to burn thousands of light bulbs, more than 600 switchboards will be assembled at the facility.
Technological capacity of the stadium will provide 250 km of fiber-optic networks. Equally impressive network will enable to organize up to 600 access points of, wireless Internet connection in different areas of the stadium, trunked connection (closed communication channels for security and internal data transfer), to ensure the work of dozens of acquiring devices and ATMs. All the information generated at the stadium will be stored in a single data center (ETSOD) with the capacity of more than 50 terabytes.
All materials and technologies used for the provision of stadium’s engineering supply will be environmentally friendly and meet high standards of LEED international certification system LEED: cables which do not release halogen when burning (HF-cable), energy saving lamps, etc. Completion of all network installation works is scheduled for late 2015.
In parallel with the installation of utility networks, inside the stadium, assembling of its outer shell - facades and roofs which started in spring will continue in the next months, at present 4 of 16 fixed roof blocks have already been assemble. The construction of space under the bleachers is in the active stage, which will house stadium’s operational services and main staircase of the arena. The completion of all works at the stadium is scheduled for May 2016
