FG Wilson and its distributer Horizons Engineering has completed a US$1.5m power installation at Basra Sports City. The genset manufacturer is providing a combination of prime and back-up power to the giant Middle Eastern sports complex.
Horizons Engineering installed seven FG Wilson generator sets including one 2500 kVA / 11 kV generator set, two 800 kVA containerised units, two 750 kVA containerised units and two 400 kVA canopy units. These provide prime power to the entire 2.2m square meter complex until all construction work is complete, when they will provide back-up power.
The 65 000 capacity stadium that cost US$800m to build will host the 2015 Gulf Cup of Nations. The complex includes hotels, restaurants and a fire station.
Horizons Engineering has been FG Wilson’s dealer and distributor for Jordan and Iraq since 1999. It has become the preferred supplier for another two sports complexes in Iraq.
