Collaborating closely with our clients, our engineers craft indoor air-cooled chiller designs that harmonize with both financial and operational needs.

In 2020, Berg embarked on a comprehensive project involving the supply, delivery, and installation of lifecycle upgrades for two ice rink chillers. This undertaking included the intricate task of removing the entire ammonia charge within the chilling system at the Newcastle and Orono Arenas.

This ice rink unit lifecycle upgrade project comprised of reworking brine return and brine supple lines in the engine room to the chiller. Additionally, on-site fabrication of brine supply and return lines was executed, complemented by the provision of essential pipe and fittings. New valves (butterfly, drain) were supplied and installed on brine lines, alongside the incorporation of new thermometers (supply and return). Moreover, the project encompassed the supply and installation of necessary insulation, and the re-insulation of both compressor suction lines to the chiller, bolstering the overall efficiency and performance.
