In the past combustion engine was used for ice resurfacing which led to harmful and dangerous Co² – emissions. This was especially dangerous in closed environments such as indoor rinks, or ice rinks in shopping malls etc. Combustion engine also came with high maintenance costs.
Nowadays it is very common for ice rinks to be equipped with electric ice resurfacers, which results in drastic reduction of operating and maintenance costs, and zero emissions for safe indoor rinks.
The future of ice rink equipment holds Lithium-Ion technology, which is maintenance-free and enables limitless availability of the machine.
