New Zero Emission Ice Resurfacer for Airdrie Arenas
The City of Airdrie has added a new zero emission ice resurfacing machine to its fleet as part of a grant from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC).
“We appreciate the support from MCCAC which allowed us to continue to further our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint at our three indoor arenas,” said Jeremy Holmes, City of Airdrie Arenas operation team leader.
According to Holmes, the City operates three ice resurfacing machines, one in each of its indoor arenas. Previously, the City operated two zero emission machines and this new addition will complete the set allowing for the retirement of an older, less environmentally-friendly model.
The machine was delivered October 3, 2019, ready for operation the same day as the arenas are now in full swing with their fall public skating schedules.
