BRISBANE-based NOJA Power says its locally designed circuit recloser equipment is helping protect electricity distribution at several key 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil tournament events.
Switchgear engineering company NOJA says that in the lead up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, it won several major contracts to supply and install its High Voltage Automatic Circuit Recloser equipment at a number of stadiums and training facilities across South America.
NOJA Power Managing Director Neil O’Sullivan said the renovations of the 1973 built Castelão Stadium in Fortaleza led to the company getting contracted to supply several key sporting venues.
“Fortaleza’s 60,000 person venue Castelão Stadium houses two of NOJA Power’s circuit reclosers ensuring its six tournament games including Brazil vs Mexico, Germany vs Ghana and a quarter finals match are taken to the world," said O'Sullivan.
“Our equipment is also being used to provide electrical protection for the training centre of three-time champion Italy in Mangaratiba, near Rio de Janeiro, with the units being installed earlier this year."
“We have also supplied feeder equipment for several stadiums in Belo Horizonte in Brazil, which are being used by the Argentina, Uruguay and Chilean teams for training between matches."
