Arena Žalgirio, Kaunas, Lithuania
The Arena Žalgirio in Kaunas, Lithuania’s second-largest city, is a sporting and events facility of national importance.
The foundation stone for the building was laid in 2008. The arena was officially opened in 2011, shortly before the start of the European Basketball Championship, and all the games in the final round of the tournament were then played there. With its 40000 m2 of floor space, the stadium can hold up to 21000 people. As it also serves as the home arena for Žalgiris Kaunas, one of the country’s most successful basketball teams, it also plays host to regular games. Additionally, it is a popular location for concerts, trade fairs, and other sporting events. A special feature of the facility is its location: the whole area, including the stadium, offices, restaurants, and the adjacent sports field, are situated on an island in the Nemunas river, which flows through the heart of Kaunas.
With around three hundred Plan valve radiators and convectors including radiation shields, Kermi ensures a pleasant climate for everyone attending events in this location.
Megasport Sport Palace, Moscow
Alongside football, ice hockey is one of the most popular sports enjoyed by the Russian population – something that is clear from the fact that Moscow is now home to some six ice arenas. From April to May 2007, Russia was the venue for the Ice Hockey World Championships, an occasion that gave rise to the construction of Moscow’s most state-of-the-art arena in 2006.
Kermi provided convectors and steel panel radiators that maintain comfortable warmth in the icy Russian winter.
Munich Airport satellite terminal
On 26 April 2016, the satellite terminal at Munich Airport celebrated its first birthday. Over the course of a year, around 74000 flights and more than nine million passengers were handled through the terminal expansion. Representing a joint project between Lufthansa and Munich Airport, the building provides a gross floor area of approximately 133700 m².
An underground personal transport system – a kind of driverless mini-subway – connects the satellite to Terminal 2, allowing passengers to reach the food court and shopping area in just under a minute. There are 16 shops, seven restaurants, and three duty-free areas for air passengers to take advantage of, helping waiting times pass quicker.
Kermi GmbH is represented in the new building with a total of 850 radiators consisting of valve convectors, Profil valve radiators, and Verteo Plan radiators.

Neumayer III Antarctic research centre
The Alfred-Wegener Institute, a centre for polar and marine research operated by the Helmholtz Association, constructed built a new Antarctic station in its Bremerhaven, Germany location: the Neumayer III station. This station was then shipped to Antarctica, where it will continue with German polar research over the next 25 to 30 years.
Patented by the Alfred-Wegener Institute, the development makes it possible to conduct research and live in the same building. Not only does this reduce the journey to work for researchers, but it also allows scientific measurements to be taken largely independently of the weather. The structure even has a garage deck. However, the absolute highlight is a hydraulic lifting device – a unique construction that prevents the complex from sinking into the endless depths of the ice, as its predecessor station was able to. It also stops the station leaving components in the snow. Even the operational life has been decisively increased thanks to this impressive design.
With numerous convectors, Plan valve, Profile valve, and Mediano bathroom radiators, Kermi ensures pleasant temperatures in an icy environment.
