In December 2017, the Dutch construction company Bam International started the work on the «Yas Bay Arena» in Abu Dhabi. The 18.000-seater is designed by HOK and Pascall+Watson and created by Miral, Abu Dhabi’s creator of destinations. The arena will host sports, corporate, and cultural events, uniting people and places through unique immersive and exciting experiences.

  • The beautifully designed roof truss will help cut energy consumption through a self-shading facade that will support natural light and insulate against heat. Tesar’s cast resin transformers will also contribute to the low energy-consumption approach of the project. The Ecodesign transformers have small losses in the magnetic core and windings and therefore reduce energy consumption.
