GE POWER - 10 Months To Go – London 2012 Is Already A Winning Showcase For GE

GE equipment and technology is featuring in every Olympic Park venue at next year’s London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Advanced energy systems, high tech lighting, uninterruptible power supplies, state of the art healthcare imaging equipment and electric car charging points are among the GE innovations being showcased at next summer’s 30th Olympiad in an estimated 75 GE Olympic Games projects.

GE’s London 2012 presence follows on from GE’s strong engagement at recent Games such as Vancouver and Beijing.

GE London 2012 General Manager Tony Gale commented; “London is a great venue and London 2012 will be a fantastic Olympic Games. For GE, it is an outstanding opportunity to showcase some of our emerging new technologies, most particularly in areas such as energy management and healthcare.”

“At GE we are also one of LOCOG’s 2012 Sustainability Partners and this theme is reflected in many of our technology installations such as LED lighting in venues including the Olympic Stadium and the electric vehicle infrastructure project in which GE is a partner.”

GE main projects at London 2012 include:

London 2012 Olympic Stadium - GE Lighting is supplying around 14,000 lamps to be used in the back-of house function areas of the Olympic Stadium and GE Digital Energy’s Uninterruptible Power Suppliers (UPS) will allow continuation in the event of power failure and support the emergency lighting system.

Olympic Park Energy Centre – GE Energy has delivered Jenbacher cogeneration equipment which will provide power heating and cooling across the Olympic Park and Stratford City sites for Games time and legacy.

Electric vehicle charging – the Mayor of London Boris Johnson has announced a network of charge points planned to support the Olympic zero emission electric vehicle fleet. After the Games, the charge points will boost the Mayor’s growing Source London electric network. GE will be providing a significant number of charge points with power supply provided by EDF Energy for the London 2012 fleet of 200 BMW and Mini electric vehicles.

Olympic Village Polyclinic – GE Healthcare is supplying a wide range of digital imaging equipment to the Olympic Village Polyclinic to treat athletes during the Olympic Games include MRI, CT, X-Ray and ultrasound which will diagnosis the smallest strain or sprain to provide athletes and coaching teams with vital information for competition. GE Healthcare is also supplying 150 heart defibrillators to the healthcare services providing mobile cover to spectators at the London 2012 Olympic Games and many test events.

Velodrome (Track Cycling Venue) - GE Digital Energy’s Uninterruptible Power Supplies will allow continuation of the event and support the emergency lighting system. GE electrical distribution equipment has also been supplied to the venue. GE Uninterruptible Power Suppliers are also being used at test events across a number of venues including Wimbledon (Tennis), Lee Valley White Water Centre (Canoeing), Horse Guards parade (Beach Volleyball), Greenwich Park (Equestrian) and Eton Dorney (Rowing and Canoe Sprint).

Handball Arena and Basketball Arena - GE Lighting has designed, supplied and commissioned HDTV broadcast lighting for both the handball and basketball arena locations.

As well as Olympic Park sites GE is also providing equipment to many of the other non-Olympic park Olympic Games venues including for the equestrian competition at Greenwich Park where it is supplying ultrasound systems for the monitoring and treatment for horses in the competition.

GE is also working with the City of London, EDF Energy and the Mayor’s office on the installation of a state-of-the-art energy efficient lighting system on Tower Bridge. As well as reducing the iconic bridge’s carbon footprint and energy costs, the initiative will significantly enhance the bridge’s architectural features at night.
