Ice Plants Storage


Turnkey hard ice and thermal ice storage technologies

The development of underground mines to below 2,000m (6,500 feet) below the shaft collar, combined with an increasing concern with energy costs, has increased demand for turnkey hard ice and thermal ice storage technologies. 

Howden plate ice technology can be used with normal mine service water to product ice with an Ice Mass Friction (IMF) of up to 98%.  Our oil-injected screw compressors are used with environmentally friendly ammonia refrigerant to provide ice freezing capacity.
We can supply ice-making technology that can produce either "ice water" or "hard ice" during any specific 24 hour period.  These options make power and demand savings possible when used with good water management systems and policies.
