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

Huurre and Ylöjärven Jäähalli Oy signed a contract to deliver the first digital carbon dioxide-based energy system in Finland to Ylöjärvi ice arena at the beginning of 2019. The system was installed in September 2019 and the arena was baptised as Huurre Arena. Huurre’s CO2 system  produces 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.

Huurre Arena in Ylöjärvi 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 Huurre Arena is leading the way for other ice arena operators in Finland, as they project to modernise their plants.
