Transporting Turfgrass Pallets Olympic Games
Kinematik takes part in the preperation of the Olympic Games, Athens 2004, with a continuous flow roller conveyor system for transporting turfgrass pallets.
The Olympic Stradium turfgrass is planted in pallet pots, so that it can be installed or removed in minimum time, depending on the use of the stadium.
This way the artificial lake and the opening ceremony set were replaced by the turfgrass in just 72 hours.
In order to achieve this, Kinematik designed and constructed a 105m-long continuous flow roller conveyor line.
The roller conveyors took only the minimum width from the entrance of the Olympic Stadium, allowing the pallet unloading in an open space, making it possible to simultaneously remove the set and install the turfgrass.
