December 12, 2018 - The Morača Sports Center has been turned into a multifunctional energy-efficient facility, and thanks to new lighting, it is expected to save 80% of energy, according to the UNDP office in Montenegro, which supported the project of energy efficiency with 65,000 euros.
Ana Pajević Tošić from UNDP said that the renovated sports facilities include restoring the large hall, and the complete reconstruction of locker rooms, club offices, media conference rooms, medical rooms, massage rooms, and other accompanying rooms.
In SC "Morača", according to Pajević Tosic, according to the current standard and most modern solutions, a new VIP salon was built.
"Architects who worked on the project tried to limit the carbon footprint of the Sports Center, and make new and old sports facilities more energy efficient. This part of the project was supported by UNDP to help improve the conditions for the development of Montenegrin sport, all following the Law on Energy Efficiency, Global Environmental Change, IOC recommendations, and EU standards."
Through part of the reconstruction related to the energy efficiency of the building, the center received new lighting, and according to Pajević Tosić, electrical installations, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and hydraulic network have also been restored.
"The project has enabled the replacement of 108 classical bulbs with 52 new LEDs, as well as the installation of supporting equipment, i.e., lighting management system, which will contribute to reducing the cost of electricity and simplifying the management and control system."
SC "Moraca" is said to be almost the most energy-demanding sports building in Montenegro. New highly efficient LED lighting will save up to 80 percent of energy compared to old traditional bulbs. Also, annually, 80,000 kWh of electricity will be saved, and CO2 emissions will be reduced by 94.1 t - which will even lower maintenance costs.
