Temporary Chiller

A permanent solution for the chiller replacement would not have met the schedule for the 2023-2024 ice skating season, thus the County developed an interim solution. Los Alamos County has contracted with American Arena LLC to install a rented temporary chiller that will enable the ice rink to offer a regular skating season. In March 2024 the temporary chiller will be disconnected and removed from the ice rink, unless the permanent solution requires additional time. The County has the option to rent the chiller for an additional season if required. 



The temporary chiller provided satisfactory service and enabled the ice rink staff to offer a regular ice season to the public.  The temporary chiller was tuned off on February 19, 2024, at the end of the ice season.

As a permanent solution for chiller replacement is not going to meet the schedule for the 2024-2025 ice season, the County is amending the contract with American Arena LLC to secure the rent of the temporary chiller for another season. Procurement is readying the amendment of the Agreement for attorney’s review. It is anticipated that this amendment will be presented before Council during June 2024.
