Volvo Ocean Race Underwater Stage Platform

Volvo Ocean Race

Worldsport Arabia Event Management hosts the Volvo Ocean Race in Abu Dhabi at the Marina Yacht Club and AES is the preferred supplier based on number of deciding factors, professionalism, bespoke design and a triple bottom line approach.

We have been awarded all Infrastructure works like the 20mx26m Stage built in the Ocean at the Cornish to create a floating stage effect.

Supplying: VIP hospitality platforms, archways, media access walkways finished with glass handrail / astroturf and picket fencing, heras fencing & crowd control barriers and commercial divers and rescue team.

The Volvo Ocean Race runs for 1 month continuous. During the day the village area is operational and at night the stage in the ocean is utilized for several different events during the month.

During the tendering stage AES received an RFQ from Worldsport Arabia that specified their requirements. The next phase was R&D, were we produce the designs and static calculations that ensured a safe delivery and successful infrastructure build, proving that anything is possible if you have the right experienced team.

All schedules, design & RAMS are agreed by both parties before any work is expedited. On completion of the build an AES compliance certificate certifying that all structures are safe for use is issued to the client.
