REALice 2021 Energy Champions!

REALice 2021 Energy Champions!

VANCOUVER, May 4, 2021 — REALice Canada is proud to recognize four individuals for leadership to their arena operations team and stakeholders. All of them use REALice to make great ice AND have found innovative ways to reduce cost at their ice rink.

The REALice 2021 Energy Champion Award for outstanding achievements includes

Cam Coulter from the Mayfield Recreation Complex in Caledon, ON;
Michael Knight from the Sardis Sports Complex in Chilliwack, BC;
Lindsay Nordmarken from the Logan Schatz Memorial Arena in Allan, SK and
Doug Conquergood from the Servus Community Arena in Bow Island, AB.

Cold floodwater, increased brine settings, decommissioned equipment, and more

Each of the REALice Energy Champions has made a difference reducing the ice rink cost by using the REALice system, an alternative to using extremely hot floodwater. That includes decommissioning equipment no longer needed, running their ice at higher brine settings, and, in the case of the Town of Allan, using REALice to successfully make and resurface natural ice at their indoor arena.

Both the Town of Caledon (Cam Coulter) and City of Chilliwack (Michael Knight) are repeat customers because of their operation teams’ successes. They are setting new benchmarks to reduce their energy spent in the rink.

Bow Island’s Servus Community Arena is over 60 years old, showing that REALice can be successful at any rink. All recipients are impressed with the ice quality achieved from cold water floods through the REALice system.

We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Cam, Mike, Lindsay, and Doug. It is their positive contribution that deserves our recognition!
