Wendell A. Barwood Arena Delayed Opening

During startup of the WABA refrigeration unit, the Town’s Commercial Refrigeration Specialist encountered an issue with the control module that manages the Carrier Chiller.   The module was returned to Carrier and has been repaired and is on its way back to Vermont Commercial Refrigeration.  Additionally, a power supply component to the module had malfunctioned and a new power supply is in transit from out of the country.

Installation of the module and start up procedures are scheduled for Wednesday, October 11th.  At that time, the Town will begin chilling the arena floor in preparation for building the ice surface. Painting of the ice surface is scheduled for the 18th and 19th of October followed by continued flooding and conditioning of the ice.  The Department plans to open the WABA facility on Saturday, October 21st.
