    New refrigeration systems for Vaasa Arena

    The scope of engineering systems renovation contract carried out by Suomen Tekojää Oy for ice arena in the city of Vaasa included technical equipment supply on a turn-key basis. From now on the refrigeration of home ice rink of Vaasan Sport Liiga hockey team as well as two adjacent training ice rinks is handled by two ST N700 refrigeration units manufactured in our workshop in Parkano. The units are placed in a free-standing technical container. Two high COP condensation heat pump units producing hot water for different heating circuits of the building are placed in the same container. Naturally-occurring and environmentally friendly ammonia (NH3) is used as a refrigerant of all the refrigeration equipment supplied by us as part of the project.

    The containerized plant room was being made in our manufacturing facilities in Parkano throughout June and was delivered to Vaasa on the second week of July. Once all necessary connections, trials as well as commissioning and start-up activities had been completed the training arenas were put into operation as early as the end of July.
