Huurre Arena is the first green, digital ice rink in Finland
Huurre delivered the first digital CO2 based energy system to Ylöjärvi ice arena, baptised as Huurre Arena. The environmentally-friendly Huurre ECO ICE DX system produces both refrigeration and all the heat required at the ice arena. Its digitally steered, ground-breaking direct expansion system guarantees that it is uniquely energy efficient.
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. “Ylöjärvi ice arena aims to be a safe, healthy and high-quality facility for ice sports, using energy efficiently and responsibly” says the MD Rami Honkala.”We chose Huurre as our innovation partner, as the main criteria for the acquisition decision were life cycle costs, energy efficiency and eco-friendliness”.
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. It is steered by the advanced Huurre iTOP4 Automation Solution, which reacts comprehensively to the conditions in the ice arena.
