Making tons of ice appear and disappear in a flash
It’s the set-up and dismantling that pose the biggest challenges, because this time costs money without generating revenue. We needed to find enough reliable power to freeze vast amounts of water as quickly as possible at the build phase, then help melt it as quickly as possible when the events ended.

Unique technology, unique expertise
Our unique reverse cycle chillers melted the ice, as well as freezing it. The rink used two 200 kW units and the ice slide one, with a 125kV generator to provide extra power for the initial freeze and final melt. In between, the client’s house power was enough, running one 200 kW chiller economically at half capacity.

You’re not just getting the product, you’re getting a whole team.
Time and money saved, with 100% reliability
To our client’s delight, installation and commissioning were seamless. Every freeze and defrost time was faster than expected, with no incidents. Our quick turnaround times and cost savings saw them booking us for another ice rink which was such a success, we’re doing it again next year.
