Trane Rental Services Keeps the Season Cool for National Hockey League and British Champion Figure Skaters

Temporary cooling solution from Trane helped to keep the ice rink operational by preventing a closure for the remedial work

Brussels, Belgium, Apr. 6 2016 – Cooling is critical for most businesses, whether it is to create the right indoor environment for buildings, provide reliable cooling for industrial processes or maintain operations of leisure centers like seasonal or all-year ice-rinks. The Deeside Leisure Centre, located in Deeside, United Kingdom and facilitating the Deeside Ice Rink has recently experienced that temporary cooling needs can arise at any time and require quick action and support when it happens.

To find the best temporary cooling solution and prevent closing for remedial work after developing a major leak in the rink’s chiller, Deeside approached Trane, a leading global provider of heating ventilation and air-conditioning system (HVAC) and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand.

Closing the ice ring due to the leak in the HVAC system was not an option as the Deeside Dragons, leaders of the National Ice Hockey League’s North 2 division, as well as other sportsmen needed it to carry on with their training in order to perform and grow as athletes.

To keep the rink operational, Trane promptly supplied a RTAD150 air-cooled chiller rental unit, which would more than meet the demand needed to keep the ice rink’s ice frozen. This gave the Deeside Leisure Centre enough time to carry out the essential repair in order to rectify the leak on their permanent cooling system.     

“Here at Deeside Leisure Centre, we work with top quality athletes like our ice hockey team, who are at the top of their league and British Figure Skating Champions amongst others. It is simply vital for us to ensure that the ice rink is frozen and all athletes can train and prepare for competitions without any disruption to their routine,” said Colin Hughes, the ice rink and evolution extreme duty officer. “Trane was excellent, we truly couldn’t ask for a more professional service. We would recommend Trane to anyone in need of a chiller hire as they will support you throughout the whole process.”

“Trane Rental Services responds to our customers’ needs for efficient and reliable temporary cooling supported by a wide, experienced service network,” said Daniel Willson, rental leader for Trane in the United Kingdom. “As an original equipment manufacturer and backed by over a century of building application expertise, we have the capability to quickly provide and install the right temporary cooling solutions with efficient and reliable rental fleet.”
