Whale Cove Arena - Sustainable Ice Plant Design and Implementation

Accutech Engineering Inc.

Whale Cove, Nunavut


The Hamlet of Whale Cove required a facility that could extend the hockey season by a minimum of four months, be used year-round by the Community, and have very low power consumption. Accutech Engineering Inc. provided a proprietary and environmentally sensitive design to meet and exceed the Hamlet’s goals. The design used three common building blocks; they included a concrete slab, thermosyphons, and a ventilation system, all designed to work together.
