The exclusive Myrtha Pools technology has been developed thanks to intelligent and superior materials: stainless steel for the structure, PVC for waterproofing and ceramic tiles. Moreover, the latest technology features water filtration and circulation systems, which is also applied to the warm-up and training pool, located outside the Palau Sant Jordi.
Swimmers and synchro athletes will benefit from the latest technology provided by Myrtha Pools. According to Emilio Alonso, general director of the Italian company, the pool system prevents waves from bouncing back, which could interfere with the swimmer’s progress.
The swimming pool (50m x 26m x 3m) at the Palau Sant Jordi is over 50% bigger than the one built for the 2003 FINA World Championships in Barcelona. The pool has ten lanes (2,5m each) for the swimming competition.
The warm-up and training pool, which is being installed next to the Palau Sant Jordi, is smaller than the competition pool: 50m x 21m x 2m, holding almost 2.5 million liters of water.
Myrtha Pools is a world leader in the supply and installation of swimming pools. The Italian company already built and implemented the competition pool for the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai.
