A Modern Refrigeration System
The arena’s new refrigeration system is based on GEA’s Grasso M compressor packages. These compressors are known for their high efficiency and low environmental impact. The system also uses ammonia/carbon dioxide (NH₃/CO₂) as a refrigerant, which is a natural refrigerant with a low global warming potential (GWP).
Efficient Cooling for the Ice Rink
The primary function of the new refrigeration system is to provide efficient cooling for the arena’s ice rink. The system will maintain the ice surface at a consistent temperature of -5°C to ensure optimal conditions for skating and hockey games.
Comfortable Temperatures for Spectators
The system will also provide comfortable temperatures for spectators in the arena’s stands. The GEA technology will ensure that the temperature in the stands remains between 18°C and 21°C, even when the arena is filled to capacity.
A Sustainable Solution
The use of ammonia/carbon dioxide as a refrigerant is a significant step towards sustainability. NH₃/CO₂ has a GWP of nearly 1,400 times lower than that of traditional refrigerants like R-410A. This means that the new system will have a much smaller impact on the environment.
A Partnership for Success
GEA worked closely with CLIMATIC GfKK, the main contractor for the arena project, to design and install the new refrigeration system. CLIMATIC GfKK is a leading provider of refrigeration and climate control solutions.
A Significant Achievement
The completion of the arena‘s refrigeration system is a significant achievement for GEA. The company is proud to have played a role in providing a sustainable and efficient solution for this world-class venue.
GEA’s Commitment to Sustainability
GEA is committed to developing sustainable technologies for the refrigeration and climate control industries. The company is investing heavily in research and development to find new ways to reduce the environmental impact of its products.
The Future of Refrigeration
The new refrigeration system at the multi-purpose arena in Berlin is a testament to GEA’s commitment to sustainability and innovation. The system is a model for the future of refrigeration, and it is sure to have a positive impact on the environment for years to come.
