The World Expo is one of the largest exhibitions in the world, hosting all willing nations around the world and dates back to 1928. The event primarily serves as a platform for countries to share their cultural heritage, values, and achievements with one another. It is famous for its one-of-a-kind architectural pieces and installations. The World Expo in 2010 was hosted in China and attracted 73 million people making it the most attended world expo in history. The year’s theme was “better city, better life” and Denmark utilized its prime resources to demonstrate its take on it.
The Danish pavilion was designed by Bjarke Ingels BIG Architects group. The team created a work of art closely resonating with the year’s theme that integrated details of Danish lifestyle and most importantly – made it possible for the visitors to temporarily become part of it. The architects achieved this by making the pavilion interactive, providing the guests with 1 500 bikes which could be used through the pavilion’s bike roads. They were also offered the chance to enjoy a picnic, and to go for a swim in the swimming pool. The pavilion had around 4.2 million visitors in 184 days of the expo. Furthermore, its design was the only one that offered a natural ventilation system, created with the pool cooling that followed the shape of the building, simultaneously ventilating the entire space.
Lastly, the Danish pavilion received a bronze award for the “Pavilion Design” category that was being given by event coordinators – Bureau International des Expositions. The evaluation process included the design, construction techniques, and resonance to the year’s theme – better city, better life.
As a part of the Danish experience and with reference to the Harbour Baths in Copenhagen, the pool around The Little Mermaid was suitable for public swimming. With large numbers of visitors in the expo, the efficient water disinfection presented both a necessity and a challenge. ULTRAAQUA UV with its many years of expertise and sustainable design philosophy not only matched the general topic of the event, but was also able to provide a UV system for chloramine reduction in swimming pool water for even the most intense activity.
The MultiRay™ MP system is designed specifically for chloramine reduction in swimming pool water. The core strength of the system lies in the lamp size and intensity combined with the reactor design features. The MultiRay™ MP is the most efficient medium pressure UV system on the market and is the perfect solution for smaller spaces with its compact form.
“It was a great honour to be selected for such an international event. The ULTRAAQUA UV de-chlorination systems has become an increasingly demanded product due its compact size, ease of operation and efficiency like no other alternatives.”
