Andrews keeps GB rowers cool
The GB Team is currently at their usual quarters in Breisach, Germany, training for next month’s Rowing World Championships in Holland.
Andrews supplied 20 Polar Wind Plus portable units for location within the training camp’s living quarters. This use of the portable units is designed to enable competitors to sleep comfortably and keep them fresh in a region which regularly experiences temperatures in excess of 30°C.
Boasting Europe’s best facilities, Breisach is said to offer athletes an ideal platform for physical activity and planning ahead of what is widely regarded the biggest event in the rowing calendar. This year’s World Championships will be held from August 21-28 at the Willem-Alexanderbaan in Rotterdam.
The 4.2kW Polar Wind Plus is an A-rated appliance capable of cooling areas of up to 99m³. Noise level is just 50dB.
The products were collected from Andrews’ flagship London depot for the 550-mile journey to their final destination in south-west Germany.
