Ramtech’s WES3 system plays crucial role in Olympic Village construction

As reported by Ramtech, the WES3 wireless fire system has been instrumental in maintaining fire safety during the construction of key venues for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The system was deployed across three major projects: the Olympic and Paralympic Village, the Adidas Arena, and the Aquatics Centre.

The Olympic and Paralympic Village, inaugurated on February 29th, 2024, is set to host athletes during the Paris Games.

The village, spanning three parts of Paris, will accommodate over 14,000 athletes and their entourages during the Olympics and 8,000 for the Paralympics.

Designed to meet high environmental standards, it aims to provide top-notch services for athletes and a sustainable legacy for the Seine-Saint Denis community.

During its construction, the WES3 system ensured early fire detection and rapid response, crucial for worker safety.

Stephane Stoesser, Business Development Manager at Ramtech France, said: “WES3’s flexibility and reliability have been paramount in safeguarding the construction of the Olympic and Paralympic Village.”

Adidas Arena benefits from advanced fire safety solutions

The Adidas Arena, a multifunctional space inaugurated on February 11th, 2024, was built for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Located north of Paris, it will host badminton, para-badminton, rhythmic gymnastics, and para-lifting events.

Post-Olympics, it will continue to serve as a venue for various cultural and sports events.

The arena’s construction incorporated sustainable design elements, including recycled materials and extensive vegetation.

The WES3 wireless fire alarm system aligned with these sustainability goals by providing robust fire protection during construction.

This ensured the safety of workers and the project’s timely progress.

Aquatics Centre construction supported by WES3 system

The Aquatics Centre, featuring a 50-meter pool and a diving pool, is another key venue for the Paris 2024 Games.

It will host water polo, diving, and synchronized swimming competitions and be transformed into a boccia stadium for the Paralympics.

Post-Games, it will serve the local and national swimming community.

The construction phase focused on sustainability, using bio-based materials and solar energy infrastructure.

The WES3 system’s modular design provided a flexible safety solution, ensuring fast and reliable fire detection.

 This contributed to a safe construction environment and the project’s successful completion.

Adam Kovics, Sales Director Europe at Ramtech, stated: “We are proud that our WES3 system has been installed at three different locations for the Olympics.

“ Its advanced detection and alert capabilities have been essential in ensuring the effectiveness of fire safety for all these large-scale projects.”
