Andrews cools British Olympic rowers

10097570_sUK: Great Britain’s rowers were remarkably successful at the 2012 Olympic Games, amassing four Golds, two Silver and three Bronze medals. 

In order to keep progressing, the GB Rowing Team squad will once again set up base at their annual training camp in Breisach, Germany. The region boasts the best facilities in Europe but in previous years the overbearing heat has affected the sleeping patterns and general comfort of competitors.

Andrews Air Conditioning has provided 25 Polar Wind portable units to be stationed at the training camp which will adequately cool the squad during a spell of particularly hot weather. With the agreement in place for the next three years, the equipment will be required until the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
