As you probably know, Russia will host the 21st FIFA World Cup in 2018, the first World Cup tournament to be held both in Eastern Europe and on two continents – Europe and Asia. 12 stadiums are being built or refurbished especially for the occasion. Rawlplug products have been specified in the following projects:
- Volgograd Arena in Volgograd – where 270,000 R-XPT 10-080/10 anchors will be installed to fix the seats and related structures.The assembly works will be carried out by a Russian seat manufacturer.
- Volga Arena in Novgorod where 132,000 stainless steel throughbolts will be installed.
- Dinamo Moscow’s new stadium- where R – XPT throughbolts have been selected for structural anchoring as well as R-DCA wedge anchors and K1-10N screw-in façade fixings. Since Dinamo Moscow is one of the oldest football clubs in Russia, their arena has become one of the best references for our products.
- Expansion of the Domodedovo International Airport near Moscow – where R-XPT HD 16/180 mechanical anchors will be used to fix the structural elements of the roof.
We are delighted with Rawlplug’s progress on the Russian market. More news coming up soon!
