Huurre to install the first digital carbon dioxide system at Ylöjärvi ice arena – user experience and energy efficiency to next level

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 a practice arena with 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.
