Olympic energy centre underlines need for workers who have taken plumbing or ele

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) recently announced details of the energy centre being built on the Olympic Park, which could well emphasise the need for tradespersons with plumbing and electrical qualifications on similar projects.

According to the ODA, the centre will contain five cooling towers and three large-scale hotwater boilers, which will provide a site-wide, energy-efficient cooling and heating system.

ODA director of infrastructure and utilities Simon Wright stated that the centre, as well as supplying the Olympic Games, would be extremely beneficial to local residents in the future.

"Sustainability is at the heart of the 2012 project and the energy centre will ensure a lasting legacy of green power in the Olympic Park for generations to come," he said.

With such a high-profile event to cater for and no room for error, it may be that tradespersons who have taken plumbing or electrical courses could be in high demand when it comes to installing large, durable appliances for an event that is watched by millions.

The ODA recently announced that the 160-metre-long roof frame of the Olympic Aquatic Centre has been successfully fitted onto the top of the venue.
