Stadium Lugano, Switzerland
Ice & snow melting
DEVI was chosen for the snow melting system on the roof of a stand in the stadium of Lugano. The existing roof was not good enough to withstand the weight of snow in case of heavy snow fall. The solution was to fix a heating cable system on the roof. The roof was covered by a special plastic layer, so it was not possible to fix the cables directly. Therefore, we fixed a metal grid on the concrete segments and the cable on the grid.
The roof was split into 11 segments with 14.2 m 4.05 m, in total 632 m2.
DEVI installed 6,000 m heating cable with a total power output of 150 kW.
