In 2022, Berg has participated in the R22 replacement project for Hector Arena by custom designing and supplying an air-cooled ice rink refrigeration system. This project aims to enhance the arena's environmental sustainability and operational efficiency while eliminating the use of the outdated R22 refrigerant.

The project encompassed the installation of a meticulously tailored ice rink refrigeration package for Hector Arena, featuring two dual-circuited, 80TR outdoor packaged air-cooled chillers utilizing the environmentally friendly Opteon XP10 (R513a) refrigerant, along with a remote air-cooled condenser and two efficient centrifugal brine pumps. This comprehensive upgrade has significantly elevated the ice rink's operational efficiency, safety, and sustainability, effectively addressing the arena's preexisting challenges and positioning it for a more environmentally responsible and reliable future.
