Making waves at the Olympics

Electrical Review Logo

Marco supplied a series of specialist products to contractors at work on London’s historic Olympic event in 2012.

Marco’s steel wire cable tray was used by the M&E team at the White Water Centre in Lee Valley, located 30 kilometers north of the Olympic Park, on the edge of the 1,000-acre River Lee Country Park – part of the Lee Valley Regional Park.

The White Water Centre has two separate courses including a 300 metre Olympic-standard competition course with a 5.5m descent, and a 160m intermediate/training course with a 1.6m descent. Both courses were built from scratch, along with a 10,000 square metre lake. This feeds a system of pumps that provide the course with 15 cubic metres of water per second. The white water is created by these pumps and obstacles placed along the course.
