HC Eppan in short
HC Eppan, the pirates were founded in 1981 and after a few years they also get their own ice stadium in the center of St.Michael/Eppan. The hockey club is well placed in the Italian Hockey League which is the second highest league in Italy.
They do also a great work in developing young talents already for many years.
Objectives of the common project
- replacement of non-working current solution
- working ice rink required immediately
- ice needed for the training of the profi team
- ice needed for the citizens, societies, schools
- avoid risk of losing income over the next months
“An own ice rink for us is essential – no club is able to manage its athletes and trainings on other spaces of neighbouring municipalities.” says Andreas Thaler, board member of HC Eppan.
Why with Intercom Dr. Leitner?
- due diligence to deliver the required ice in short notice
- plug & play integration into existing infrastructure without additional costs
- meeting needs and demands: ice for the training and the championship games of the profi team, ice for the citizens, societies and schools
- avoiding extra costs & renting infrastructures at other places
- perfect ice quality even in summer time – all season
“In short notice we had at hand a very efficient solution that is going to work also for the next years, in order that we have time to renew the existing infrastructure.” says Andreas Thaler.
What’s the technical approach?
- installation of LEITice Plus System
- adaption of the headers to the existing infrastructure
- insulation of the piping system
- ice making
„They installed an uninterrupted piping on 60 meters without joining different elements in order that the cooling liquid passes easily. This system guarantees a continuous ice surface without weak spots and ensures also energy efficiency.” so Christian Paller.
- continuous income due to the no gap in working ice rink
- happy customers
