Flying High against the Backdrop of the Abu Dhabi Skyline
The new "High Diving World Cup" competition took place for the third time from February 27 to 29.
This time, the athletes traveled to Abu Dhabi to dive into the depths from dizzying heights of 20 and 27 meters. This was the third time that NUSSLI built the platforms for the daredevil dives.
Following the World Championship in Barcelona and the World Cup in Kazan, NUSSLI undertook construction of the diving platform for the 2016 High Diving World Cup directly in the eight-meter-deep waters of the Abu Dhabi bay. To accomplish this, the NUSSLI assembly technicians, just like the athletes, needed to have a head for heights. At the end of a 14-day construction period, the crew mounted the last system element of the diving platform at a height of 27 meters.
