New refrigeration, heat recovery and ventilation equipment for ice arena in Kuortane
Suomen Tekojää Oy contracted to renovate HVAC-systems of ice arena of sports college in Kuortane, Finland. Existing refrigeration and ventilation equipment of the arena has been replaced with a new state-of-the-art totally remote-controlled unit placed inside an outdoor free-standing technical container. Ammonia refrigeration equipment with cooling capacity of 580 kW and condensation heat pump unit with heating capacity of 200 kW are both placed on the lower level of the technical container. Air handling unit of the arena is placed on the upper level and liquid cooler is mounted on the roof of the container. Condensation heat generated by the refrigeration equipment is recovered and utilized in air handling unit coils and in different heating circuits of the arena by means of the heat pump.
The biggest challenge of this large-scale project was that the ice rink had to stay available throughout the renovation work. Proper timing of installation works and work stages helped us to handle the challenge successfully hence replacing the existing systems with new ones has been carried out smoothly.

District cooling plant for energy provider in Jyväskylä, Finland
A new ice arena containing two ice rinks has recently been completed as part of the extension of the Buugi recreation and fitness center in the city of Jyväskylä, Finland. The amount of cooling energy required by the arena is produced by means of district cooling plant located in technical container owned by local energy provider and manufactured by Suomen Tekojää Oy.
Brine cooled freon refrigeration equipment with cooling capacity of 580 kW and R407F as a refrigerant is located on the ground floor of two-level technical container located just outside the arena. Condensing heat released from the equipment is recovered to be transferred to the facility heating network as well as to the heating coil of arena air handling unit located on the upper floor of the technical container. The refrigeration equipment is designed to provide cooling energy for ice rinks of the arena as well as to ensure air conditioning of personnel and public premises of the fitness center by means of ventilation systems.
New refrigeration equipment for skating center in Seinäjoki
Recently renovated skating center in Seinäjoki has now three ice arenas and a large ice rink with 400 m speed skating track. Refrigeration equipment of large ice rink, existing ice arena and new ice arena built to replace former outdoor ice hockey rink has been renovated as part of recently completed project.
Scope of works performed by Suomen Tekojää Oy included dismantling of existing refrigeration equipment, engineering of new refrigeration units, installation and commissioning on turnkey basis as well as replacement of ice rink slab cooling pipeline and transit brine pipeline in new ice arena built to replace former outdoor ice hockey rink. New state-of-the-art remote controlled ammonia refrigeration equipment has been installed in existing refrigeration plant room. Total cooling capacity of the equipment is divided to provide 2 MW for the large ice rink and 500 kW for two ice arenas. A condensing heat pump unit with heating capacity of 630 kW is installed in the same plant room with the refrigeration equipment. The unit is designed to heat water up to 60oC for further use in radiator heating and domestic hot water systems of the skating center.
