Huurre to install the first digital CO2 energy system at Ylöjärvi ice arena

Huurre and Ylöjärven Jäähalli Oy have signed a contract to deliver the first digital carbon dioxide-based energy system in Finland to Ylöjärvi ice arena, Euromaster Areena. The system will be installed in 2019. Huurre’s CO2 system will produce both the refrigeration and all the heat required at the ice arena. Its digitally steered, ground-breaking direct expansion technology guarantees that it is uniquely energy-efficient. Ylöjärvi ice arena aims to be a safe, healthy and high-quality facility for ice sports, using energy efficiently and responsibly.

Modernising the ice arena using Huurre’s technology allows for a great user experience, and it also minimises the arena’s life-cycle costs and reduces its carbon footprint. Ylöjärven Jäähalli Oy’s goal has been to replace climate-damaging F-gases as refrigerants and to avoid using any toxic substances in the ice arena.

Euromaster Areena in Ylöjärvi is has two tracks, and its utilisation rate is one of the highest in Tampere region, the second largest conglomeration in Finland. The carbon dioxide-based refrigeration and heat production solution is based on Huurre ECO ICE DX equipment and software. It will be steered by the advanced Huurre iTOP Automation Solution, which reacts comprehensively to the conditions in the ice arena. Huurre is one of the world’s leading developers and suppliers of CO2 refrigeration and heat production automation technology, and it does not use F-gases or toxic ammonia as refrigerants.

Ylöjärvi is a fast-growing town and its strategy is to be a pioneer in use of modern technology. Being the first town in Finland to select this state-of-the-art technology, the town shows commitment to creating an eco-friendly and inviting living environment. The refurbishment of Ylöjärvi ice arena is leading the way for other ice arena operators in Finland, as they project to modernise their plants.

Huurre delivers world-class energy efficiency to Flamingo Entertainment Center

Huurre will deliver Flamingo Entertainment Center in the airport city Aviapolis in Vantaa its uniquely powerful, energy-efficient and eco-friendly carbon dioxide heat production solution during the turn of the year.

Huurre will carry out the Flamingo energy efficiency project with Assemblin, professional Nordic installation and service company. Huurre technology solution provides estimated 35-40 % yearly heating energy savings in the project. This project helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the building significantly.

The Huurre ECO system installed in the Flamingo real estate owned by Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company is the most powerful CO2 system delivered in commercial real estate in Finland. The combined power of the two Huurre heat production units is approximately 1,000 kW. The units use carbon dioxide as a refrigerant, as it is the only non-toxic and non-flammable natural refrigerant that complies with the new legislation restricting greenhouse gases.

With Huurre solution, most of the heating energy of the entertainment center can be produced by utilising the waste water and air conditioning waste heat. By steering the system with the Huurre iTOP Refrigeration Automation solution, it can be ensured that the carbon dioxide system operates in the most energy-efficient manner possible and minimises the lifecycle costs.

For further information please contact Kari Reunanen, head of Huurre Area Finland tel. +358 40 844 3366 or Assemblin Sales Manager Janne Aittola tel. +358 50 385 3347.
