InteliRain is delighted to have been of service to Canada’s Armed Forces in 2017.
A major sport and recreation project for the base’s soldiers, airmen and families has seen the construction of two full-sized baseball fields.
InteliRain was chosen to provide its irrigation system to this project, covering about 300,000 square feet. With its on-site weather station providing wind information instantaneously to the InteliRain computer hub, the system is covering all areas of fields with water via a total of 19 heads, in a part of the country which can often times experience minimal rainfall during the summer season.
Professional Grade Intelligent Irrigation
InteliRain was honoured to be selected by professional Major League Soccer (MLS) Club, Sporting KC, to supply and install our unique irrigation system for a 4-field layout, covering close to 400,000 square feet at their brand-new training academy.
Doubling up as the US Soccer National Coaching Centre, our system was installed in Q2 of 2017 and is now fully up and running and working perfectly. Linked to our on-site weather station, the usage of the InteliRain irrigation system has saved 70% of infrastructure required, seen significant savings in terms of water being used and is now irrigating these 4 fields with just 23 heads, while taking into account those gusty Kansas winds as well, with instantaneous feedback to our operating system.
InteliRain is very fortunate to partner with the Mountain Vista Golf Course in Palm Desert, California to have had a designated, year-round test site to complete development of its Wind Shift Technology.
The Palm Desert area provides an ideal location for testing as it experiences varying wind conditions throughout the year.
Now that testing and development has been completed we look forward to working with their very experienced staff to further enhance the technology.
Located at Bow Valley High School in Cochrane, Alberta, just northwest of the City of Calgary, the InteliRain system was chosen to irrigate large areas of a grassy recreational field surrounding the school’s artificial turf sports facility.
Sixteen heads were installed surrounding the field in 2015, designed to irrigate about 100,000 square feet.
The system has been working perfectly in keeping these surrounding areas perfectly irrigated and subsequent installs in other locations are now being considered.
In 2016, as part of their Cityscape Phase 7 school site in North East Calgary, InteliRain was selected by one of Canada’s largest land developers/home builders to install our sports field irrigation system to one of the very few dedicated pitches to the sport of cricket in Western Canada.
Totalling 165,000 square feet in area as well as surrounding lands, a total of 16 heads were installed to provide 100% coverage to this large sporting field. And after a year’s usage and a typical sub-zero Calgary winter, the system is operating perfectly.
