“Alongside Avanceon, we are honoured to participate and support Qatar’s ambitious vision at Lusail, the Future City, in preparation for the FIFA World Cup. Our ControlLogix system is built into the very foundations, a key factor in ensuring safe control of temperature regulation and quality of air inside the tunnel infrastructure.”
