Renovation of refrigeration equipment of ice arenas in Kotka
Suomen Tekojää Oy has renovated refrigeration equipment of ice arenas in the city of Kotka (Finland). The contract included dismantling of existing equipment, technical room refurbishment as well as installation of the new engineering systems on turnkey basis. From now on cooling energy for the refrigeration systems of main ice arena with a capacity of 1958 spectators and training ice rink with a capacity of 100 spectators is provided by new ammonia refrigeration unit assembled in our manufacturing facilities in Parkano. Ammonia is used as a refrigerant for its environmental friendliness and natural origin. Along with the refrigeration equipment the machine room also contains a high-efficiency ammonia heat pump unit ST N250 HP used to heat potable water for different purposes of the arena.
The renovation works started in the end of April with dismantling of the existing equipment. The new refrigeration unit was being assembled in our workshop in Parkano over the course of June. Installation of the refrigeration unit in the machine room of the arena followed by necessary start-up and commissioning operations was completed in July. The arena is due to reopen for visitors in August after the ice rink is ready for skating.
Ammonia refrigeration unit for a new ice arena in Tesoma
A new ice arena with a capacity of 1396 spectators was completed in Tesoma regional center (Tampere, Finland) in July 2017. As a contractor for refrigeration systems of the arena Suomen Tekojää Oy manufactured in its workshop in Parkano a free-standing outdoor technical refrigeration container to be placed at the rear side of the arena building. Factory-made container-type ammonia refrigeration unit was transported to the construction site. After completion of all the necessary piping and electrical works the refrigeration unit was put into operation.
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.

Total cooling capacity of ammonia refrigeration unit designed to be used for ice hockey rink is 460 kW.
Water chilling unit for Dieffenbacher
We have manufactured a water chilling unit with cooling capacity of 300 kW for Dieffenbacher. The unit is designed to provide cooled water for gluing machines of chipboard plant located in Switzerland.
Cold storage warehouse
We have manufactured NH3- and CO2-refrigeration units for cold storage warehouse recently completed in Marjamäki, Lempäälä. The warehouse with total area of more than 5,000 m2 includes refrigeration tunnels, cold-storage rooms and moderately cold premises. The refrigeration units are located both in the plant room of the warehouse and in the free-standing technical container located outside the warehouse.
