Stadium inspectionOne of the venues for the Euro 2012 football championships has had its fire protection systems inspected by VdS, the German certification body.

The Warsaw National Stadium will host the opening game, a semi-final and three additional matches with anticipated crowds of 58,000.

VdS engineers performed joint plan analyses, routine building inspections and the final on-site approval of around 30,000 sprinklers with 37 alarm valve stations as well as 16 gas extinguishing systems at the 204,000m2 complex.

"The gas extinguishing systems, installed in the stadium’s large screens at a height of 60 metres, posed a particular challenge – not only technical, but also logistical,” said Thomas Afeltowicz-Schultz, head of the Polish VdS subsidiary in Warsaw. “Among other things, we flooded them completely while the VdS laboratories measured concentrations.”

The opening match of Euro 2012 will be played at the stadium on 8 June.
