Schwan’s Super Rink

Playing off the success of the original Super Rink Facility, the National Sports Center expanded its ice arena facilities by constructing a four-sheet ice rink facility to compliment the original four-sheet complex. This expansion makes it the largest indoor ice arena facility in North America.

The ice system consists of a 300 ton, industrial-grade, centralized refrigeration system, a few waste heat recovery systems, sub-floor heating systems, sub-soil drainage systems, four concrete ice rink floors, and two snow melt pits. The central refrigeration system and the waste heat recovery systems are key design elements for minimizing energy costs.
