Based on our experience with the lithium-ion Zamboni Model 450 machine, we are looking into transitioning more of our equipment to electric in the future.
We know we're saving on fuel costs and the cost of maintaining an engine. Our team is happy to not have to change propane tanks outside in the cold anymore.
Our battery-powered electric ice resurfacers are expected to reduce fuel-related costs by 80% and maintenance costs by 35%.
In addition to cost reductions, we have access to improved operational and maintenance data while producing an overall enriched operator experience, with Zamboni providing valuable ongoing training opportunities for staff.
Being the oil and gas capital of Canada where we've had an industry that was oil related for so long, technology needs to change and advance. I see it through my travels where I see the solar panels as you enter communities, so change is happening. The 450 couldn't have come out at a better time.Chris Fish, Account Manager
