The Superbock Arena in Porto

Portugal has proved to be an excellent sales territory for Interal T.C.. We've been active there for many years now, we've completed numerous projects both large and small and together with our trusted dealers we've built up a substantial network.

Following a tense pitch against other truss manufacturers we were pleased to be awarded the contract to manufacture the main and central grids for the Superbock Arena. The entire project, from recommendations and calculations through to manufacture and installation was to be handed over on a turnkey basis. Interal T.C. called on the services of Ivo Mulder of and Han Wannemakers of Frontline Rigging for the latter two elements, with local support from AudioMatrix and Interal PT.

A former athletics stadium was converted into a multifunctional arena, including a 6500-seat auditorium. The main grid, around 18 x 18 metres with two 10 x 5 metre wings was constructed using P60 truss, specially reinforced for the purpose. This allows the grid to take a load of up to 35 tonnes.

A circle approximately 16 metres in diameter and operated by a set of 8 D8+ motors was installed in the central area.
