Refrigeration systems also serve the sports and leisure industry. More and more ice rinks and ski resorts make full use of these. Indirect cooling, with CO2 as a relatively safe cooler, is the heart of the modern cooling technique of GRADE Refrigeration in these modern leisure centers. The more constant quality and the increased flexibility of this approach, including total control and service ensure a customized steady and constant layer of ice and covering of snow.
Snowboarding, snowball fights, and sled races – when others come back with a sunburn from open-air vacations. This is not magic – it is simply the artificial snow systems from GEA Refrigeration Technologies that let snow fall even above freezing.
Ice skating has become a trendy sport over the past years. It trains the entire body, promotes good posture, and is equally fun for young and old. Expensive equipment is not even necessary – you can rent ice skates if you wish. But advanced, reliable, and energy-saving refrigeration technology is indeed required.
In the desert city of Dubai, people now have to put on warm clothes at outdoor temperatures around 40 °C in the shade – at least when they want to spend a few pleasant hours in the indoor ski slope of the city. It’s truly icy cold inside, to ensure absolute winter sports fun.
Polar bears and penguins would never encounter each other in the wild, since the bears live in arctic regions, and penguins are at home in the southern hemisphere. At best, they come close together in the zoos of the world. There they share their great delight – for ice made by ice machines of GEA Refrigeration Technologies.
