Summertime is festival time. A must for all rock fans of open-air concerts is the legendary festival "Rock im Park" in Nuremberg at the beginning of June. This year again, more than 85,000 rock music fans made their way to experience a unique weekend together with their music idols. To ensure that all visitors felt completely at ease, a total of eleven mobile heating centers from the rental specialist Hotmobil provided pleasantly warm water in the shower area of the festival.
The organization of such a gigantic music festival is a real challenge for the organizers, in this case the ARGO Konzerte GmbH from the Franconian Würzburg, every year anew and requires in advance a maximum of commitment and readiness of all involved to offer the visitors a successful open-air experience in the end.
At the festival site, the Zeppelinfeld in Nuremberg, festival visitors are offered the opportunity to spend the night in camping areas on the grounds. The basic prerequisite for this is the provision of sanitary facilities in sufficient numbers, which were provided by Toi Toi & Dixi Sanitärsysteme GmbH, a provider specializing in this area. Hotmobil Deutschland GmbH was once again responsible for supplying all temporary sanitary facilities with hot water. With a total heat output of more than 5,250 kW, distributed over a total of eleven mobile heating centers, approximately 320 showers were supplied with a constant 35°C hot water. At peak times, this produced up to 125,000 liters of domestic hot water per hour. "The systems have to withstand a lot with the mass of people. It is therefore essential that the showers function properly and that sufficient hot water is provided at as constant a temperature as possible," says Peter Spatzl, the person responsible at Hotmobil.
The delivery, the installation and the start-up of the mobile heating units were carried out by the trained and experienced Hotmobil service technicians. Also during the running festival operation, an employee was constantly on site in order to be able to intervene immediately in case of possible malfunctions and thus a stable operation of the systems could be ensured.
