Major retrofits were required at the Colisée des Bois- Francs in Victoriaville, due to its underpowered and obsolete refrigeration system.
A CoolSolution® approach
Based on the results of a feasibility study that examined a number of alternatives, decision-makers opted for a “commercial” refrigeration system that include:
- 100% recovery of the heat extracted from the ice surface
- Variable condensation pressure operation
- Confinement of refrigerants in the service room
- Heat pumps to produce heat from refrigeration system rejection
The building is instrumented to allow detailed monitoring of the various systems. Although the system capacity has been increased by 50%, the energy consumption is lower than the one of the old system.
