Schneider Electric to help power leading Premier League Club’s new state-of-the-art stadium
London (U.K.), Thursday 15th March, 2018 - Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has secured a long-term supplier contract with Tottenham Hotspur (‘Spurs’) to become the Official Stadium Management Supplier to the Club’s new state-of-the-art stadium in North London.
Working closely with Spurs and its partners during the construction, service and maintenance phases of the project, Schneider Electric will distribute all power supply to the stadium and integrate key systems. This will boost the stadium’s energy and operational efficiency and support the day-to-day running of the venue.
The energy management and building management solutions provided by Schneider Electric will play a key role in delivering energy and operational efficiencies, supporting the Club’s vision of delivering the ultimate experience for every visitor to its new world-class stadium.
Schneider Electric is embedding its EcoStruxure™ platform - the digital backbone that connects best-in-class Operations Technology (OT) solutions with the latest in Information Technology (IT) - into the stadium’s architecture to unlock the trapped value within Spurs’ operations and unleash the true potential of its connected products and software. EcoStruxure™ will provide real-time monitoring for preventative maintenance and personalise visitor experiences, including aspects such as temperature and lighting conditions.
The stadium’s electrical infrastructure will be monitored constantly from Schneider Electric’s remote field services bureau. Its Building Analytics software will perform system checks every five minutes, totalling 60,000 checks every hour onsite. Schneider Electric product experts will also be onsite to personally monitor the stadium’s power infrastructure on match days and in the build-up to any special events.
Matthew Collecott, Director of Operations, Tottenham Hotspur said: “Schneider Electric is a leading provider of energy and building management systems and we are delighted to announce its role in the stadium project. We have the upmost confidence in its ability to deliver a best-in-class energy management system, which will power one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world.”
Mike Hughes, UK Zone President of Schneider Electric, said: “We are delighted to partner with Tottenham Hotspur to create one of the world’s most compelling venues for sport and entertainment. By embracing digitisation and automation, the stresses associated with hosting and attending live events can be alleviated. Together, we will develop a next-generation customer experience for sports fans; one that is only achievable with the latest technology.”
Tottenham Hotspur’s stunning new stadium has been designed from the outset as a state-of-the art, multi-use venue, including a structurally engineered fully retractable pitch. The first for any stadium in the UK, it will ensure that the football-playing surface is always in peak condition. Underneath the grass field will be a synthetic grass surface that will be used for NFL games and other events, creating a new world-class sports and entertainment venue for the capital. Designed for atmosphere, the venue aims to deliver an unrivalled fan experience inside the 62,062 seater stadium, the largest of any football club in London. The stadium is set to open later this year.
