Project Description

In the summer break window of 2020, PEC Zwolle decided to convert their synthetic turf playing surface to natural grass. The Dutch Football Association requires clubs that play at the highest professional level to be able to keep their fields free of frost and snow in wintertime. It was therefore decided that installation of an undersoil heating system would need to be included in the project. SPS was awarded the contract to supply and install the pitch pipes matrix because of its expertise and very tight construction deadlines.

Scope of works

1. Prefabrication of 210 meters of HDPE 160/200mm divider manifolds through in-house poly-fusion technology;

2. Installation of 450 meters of main feed and return pipes;

3. Installation of 32.000 meters of lateral HDPE 25mm heating pipes, mole ploughed into the pitch profile with GPS level control;

4. All connections butt-fused or electro-fused, strictly no quick couplers used to ensure accurate tightness and lifespan of the system;

5. Installation of 350 meters of cable duct pipes, control cables and temperature sensors in the pitch profile.
