Dependable Cooling For Ice Rinks

Back to Case Studies

The Challenge

ICS Cool Energy partnered with one of the UK’s leading temporary ice rink providers and offered ice rink chillers temperature control solutions they can depend upon. Time and time again ICS Cool Energy has provided the company with highly reliable chillers, which have helped them grow from strength to strength by providing chilled water/glycol to their ice rinks. As a seasonal ice rink company, the client only needs chillers for between 2 and 10 weeks of the year. The challenge was to provide a solution that would be ideal for their situation.

The Solution

Our ICS Cool Energy team were quick to jump in and save the day buy suggesting a short term hire solution. This allows the customer to not have the chillers sitting around for 9 months of the year and doesn’t require any space to store them. Typically the product used for a 400sqm ice rink is 3x iC660 154kW chillers (see below schematic) but ICS Cool Energy provided cooling for rinks ranging from 150sqm to 1500sqm too. The hire team installed the equipment in no time (including pipework which can be long as chillers need to be hidden away out of sight of consumers) and commissioned the chillers (make sure they work), providing a full turn-key solution the customer can always rely on.

The Result

Icescape were able to continue to use their own unique ice system specifically designed for its rapid deployment and quick-freezing properties. ICS Cool Energy chillers provide them with water/glycol, which is pumped through their pipe system that freezes water within contact over a short period of time. Once a layer of ice has formed, additional water is added until that layer freezes. This process is repeated until the combined layers are thick enough to provide a high-quality smooth skating surface. As this was able to be done efficiently, the company was able to guarantee the highest standard in skating experiences at their location to all their customers.
