People all over the world watched the World Cup in Russia this summer, but not many viewers thought about what it took to provide power. However, Crestchic, a global leader in the sale and rental of loadbanks, was one of the largest service providers for temporary power during the World Cup. Working with Power Technologies, one of the largest service providers for temporary power services in the Russian Federation, Crestchic supplied loadbanks to ensure the reliability of the onsite broadcast equipment for all 12 stadiums in 11 cities.

Crestchic supplied 23 resistive/reactive loadbanks ranging in size from 500kVA and 1700kVA. Crestchic’s teams worked together from branches in the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the United States, to ensure the equipment was delivered on time.

“We were thrilled to be able to play a part in this year’s World Cup,” said Chris Caldwell, managing director, Crestchic. “This was one of our larger projects in terms of having to coordinate fleet from around the world. Our U.K. and international teams have been incredible, helping to deliver the loadbanks on time and to all 12 stadiums.”

Crestchic’s specially designed and in-house manufactured rental fleet was also used for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Crestchic has locations in the U.K., North America, China, Singapore, Netherlands, France, Germany, Brazil and United Arab Emirates.
