Special Olympics opening Ceremony 2019
At Stafford Cranes DXB, we are very proud to be part of some of the biggest events in the region and in the world. We use the specialist skills and experience from years of knowledge in the construction and lifting industry to help build the sets and in particular, the aerial performance aspect to the stage with some of the most professional and respected companies in the events industry.
The pictures above are from the 2019 Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi, which we very proudly supplied 4 towers 60 meters high on opposite side of the Zayed Sports Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Pictures below show the build, preparation and testing of the system which carried two athletes to the centre of the stadium with the Olympic flame to start the special Olympics for the first time in the Middle East.
To ensure the safety of everybody attending, the engineering was done by some of the leading engineers in the field, assuming the load including safety factor of 49.7 KN to the middle of the stadium, a radius of 130 meters. The task was quite a unique challenge, please see the pictures below to explain how we did it.
