ESCO project for an ice rink, Jyväskylä, Finland

There are two separate rinks below the ground floor of the Hippos Hall training ice rink hall in the city of Jyväskylä’s Hippos Sports Park. The training ice rink hall is a freon-free zone because the cooling system is based on the use of salt brine and an electric ice resurfacer.
