SUNY Broome Ice Center Cooling Equipment Fails
The Ice Center at SUNY Broome Community College was shut down after the facility's cooling equipment malfunctioned.
Ice Center director Chris Novitsky said there was no prior indication of a problem with the system.
The facility was closed Tuesday (March 1) as workers assessed the situation and determined what action was needed to resume operations.
Novitsky said cooling system alarms indicated there was a problem.
According to school officials, the equipment was installed about three years ago.
Novitsky said a refrigeration truck was expected to make it possible to begin the process of installing ice at the 16,600-square-foot rink. He indicated the facility could be back in operation by this weekend.
Several events are scheduled at the Ice Center over the next several weeks.
