Visa SpA, a leading Italian company, founded in 1960, manufactures high-tech gensets and power stations ranging from 9 to 3,000 kVA. The company was the chosen provider to supply power for the Alpine World Ski Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo, from 7 to 21 February 2021, for the popular racing event set against the sublime natural backdrop of the Ampezzo Valley, at the foot of the Tofane Mountains, Italy.
Visa, the chosen technical sponsor for the event, specified STAMFORD® alternators for use in the gensets for the 8MW output of power required.
A fleet of 72 gensets, which had been specially developed with STAMFORD® S-Range alternators contributed an overall output of 12,690 kVA power supply.
Each set was distributed throughout Cortina in strategic points of the territory to ensure maximum safety energy flow in support of the electricity grid during this international sporting event.
Visa’s contribution also ensured a team of technicians were present for the duration of the event.
