A television studio in the Netherlands needed a purpose-built ice rink for a celeb-filled competition show. With a film crew and celebrities taking to the ice for a week, maintaining a quality ice rink to film in required the collaboration of an expert in temporary ice rink cooling.

Ice cooling control needed to be flawless to maintain the perfect stage allowing the rest of the teams to take care of putting on a sensational ice-skating show for TV screens.


Trane Rental Services Netherlands provided a full turnkey solution. The expert hire team dedicated as much enthusiasm in the planning phase as during deployment.

They installed a rental air-cooled chiller with quick freezing properties to rapidly create the ice rink. 24/7 technical support remained available for the full week until decommissioning.


The TV studio was happy with the quality of the service provided. The temporary HVAC solution kept the studio at the right temperature to accommodate shooting in the best conditions on a perfect artificial ice rink.

The local Rental team was proud to work with the ice rink for this popular TV show.
