Recognized Excellence in Ice Rink Energy Efficiency: A Testament to Our Commitment

We are thrilled to share exciting news about our recent recognition in the International Institute of Refrigeration(IIF/IIR)'s latest article, "Reclaiming waste heat from ice rinks’ refrigeration systems to save energy." The publication references three of our studies, reaffirming the quality and seriousness of our work in the refrigeration field, particularly in the context of ice rink energy consumption.


The article underscores the critical role of heat recovery from refrigeration systems as the most substantial energy-saving measure in ice rinks. Our collaborative efforts with esteemed institutions, such as KTH in Stockholm, have contributed to the advancement of knowledge in this area. The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) even recommends heat recovery from refrigeration systems, citing it as a key strategy to minimize the need for additional heat sources.


Furthermore, the guide suggests optimizing heat recovery systems by connecting the refrigeration system to geothermal storage. This innovative approach not only improves energy efficiency during warm weather conditions but also allows for the storage of excess heat, which can be utilized during colder periods when heating demand increases.


The article highlights success stories, including the renovation of the Pirkkala ice rink in Finland. By replacing the old R404A refrigeration system with an indirect CO2 refrigeration system, the energy consumption decreased by 30%. The integration of a sorption dehumidifier further contributed to energy efficiency, making the Pirkkala ice rink one of the most energy-efficient in the world.


We're proud to be a part of these positive changes, contributing our data and expertise to drive energy efficiency in ice rinks. The recognition from the International Institute of Refrigeration is a testament to the collaborative efforts of the entire industry, and we're excited to continue making strides toward a more sustainable future.

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to drive innovation and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future.

Naturally sustainable engineering solutions!
