Sleeping beautyPoland’s National Stadium is the newest in a series of ecostadiums that have sprung up around the world. With its wavyfaçade of red and white strands woven to resemble a flutteringPolish flag, it offers not only visual appeal, but an advancedrange of eco-efficient features.These include the escalator standby system and a passengerdetection feature developed by KONE. Standby speed operation is recommended for stadium usage where the duty cycle is short but with peak loads. As the main section of the stadium is used for events, the equipment goes into “hibernation mode” until the crowds start arriving again. Benefits also include reduced wear on the moving parts as well as energy savings of up to 40 percent depending on passenger flow.
Low energy consumption and low starting energy ensure savings in every situation: when the escalators are in active use, when nobody uses them, and also when they start up, explains KONE Business Development Director Janusz Bernfeld.
