World Cup boosts pedestal contracts

As the Rolec workforce includes many avid fans of the world’s great sporting events, especially the Grand Prix and the World Cup, team members were particularly enthusiastic when the company was contracted in 2022 to supply marina services for locations servicing these events.

Both the World Cup and Grand Prix were held in the Middle East last year and the Cup brought a surge of business for Rolec, with no fewer than ten specific dockside utility installation projects undertaken at venues such as Lusail Yacht Club, A’bra Station and Doha Sports Marina. In early November, just in time to welcome World Cup visitors, marina services were also supplied to the prestigious Rixos Gulf Hotel in Doha (right).
The Rixos Gulf project required particularly high standards of presentation and Quantum pedestals were selected to fit in with the elegant waterside ambience. Durable and high-precision, they have single and three-phase outlets, water taps, TV and Cat6 data sockets. Twenty-six low level emergency cabinets were also part of the installation.
The Quantum – launched in early 2016 – has proven extremely popular in many regions, including the Middle East, due to its slender profile and ability to add sophistication to a marina destination. The louvered LED lighting head allows visitors to easily locate their boat during the hours of darkness.
Rolec has been providing installation and design services to the Middle East marina industry for over 25 of its 32 years in business, and has products and systems installed in over 140 marinas and waterfront developments throughout the region.
