Zirl has a long tradition to serve its population with two ice rinks during the winter months. Unfortunately, the technology in use was very outdated and prone to failure; as a result costs of maintenance increased and a replacement was needed.

Municipality in short
Zirl is a market village in the vicinity of Innsbruck in the Inntal valley and has approximately 8.200 citizens. As a family friendly place with a high population influx, supportive measures that benefit the municipality as a whole, are easier to put into practice.
“To guarantee perfect ice for the winter months even under extreme conditions like direct sun and warm wind, to ensure training and matches of the Hockey team and public skating”; says David Grißmann, infrastructure and building executive.
Objectives of the common project
  • replacement of the old non-working cooling unit
