It’s been fantastic to see sports events returning and we were delighted to work with the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght to facilitate the safe running of the FIBA European Championships for Small Countries which was held from the 10th to the 15th of August.

We supported the event with a Novaerus Defend 1050 on the courtside and NV800’s in the changing rooms, protecting the air for the teams, audiences and all invovled with the running of the event. Innovative Irish air disinfection technology supporting Irish sport to ensure there’s nothing in the air but sporting excellence!

National Basketball Arena manager Philip Nolan said: “We’d like to thank Novaerus for their support of the FIBA European Championship for Small Countries and for providing equipment to Basketball Ireland during the tournament. Although not a requirement to run the event, we want to thank Novaerus for the additional protection provided in using their technology, in addition to the stringent safety measures that we already have in place.”

Deirdre Devitt, CEO of Novaerus at McGreals Group, which distributes the air disinfection devices in Ireland said: “We were delighted to be supporting Basketball Ireland by providing our equipment for the FIBA European Championship for Small Countries. It is Irish-made technology and the medical-grade devices are very innovative and use patented ‘NanoStrike’ plasma technology that has been proven to inactivate 99.997% of Sars-CoV-2 the virus that causes coronavirus, as well as all airborne viruses and bacteria all year round, so air is clean and safe 24/7.”

“We would also like to say a huge congratulations to the Irish senior men’s team who won the championship after a 97 to 66 victory over Malta.”
