Murrayfield Ice Rink has become the first rink in the UK to take delivery of the new Olympia Millennium Hydrostat (H) Ice Resurfacer from Canadian manufacturer Resurfice.
Following a number of discussions with Marshalls International Murrayfield decided that the Millennium H was to be the right machine for them to put in place at the rink and to see them well in to the future.
Murrayfield have been using Olympia machines for many years now, more recently actually running 2 Olympia’s with them being rotated on a regular basis, but with the arrival of the Millennium H one of these will now be replaced.
The Millennium H was delivered to the rink following a series of demonstrations of the machine around the UK by Marshalls, with the final one kindly being held at Murrayfield. This gave rinks from around Scotland the opportunity to come along to the rink and have a good look around the machine and even try it out. More importantly it gave the Murrayfield staff the chance to take the machine out on to the ice themselves and under the guidance of Marshalls staff, put it through its paces during their daily and evening cuts.
As part of the relationship between Marshalls and Murrayfield Ice Rink, the Millennium H and the remaining Olympia will continue to be maintained with both 6 and 12 month service checks, all carried out and recorded by Marshalls, all to ensure the machines are running safe and sound and like new.
Here at Marshalls we are pleased to be putting another Olympia in to such a historic building in the UK and we know the team at the rink will be very happy with the new Millennium H and know it will be there for many years to come.
I am sure the rink would be very happy to show it off at any given point, so do keep an eye out for it if you are there or if you are from another rink and want to see it in action, then please contact the rink as they would be more than happy to show you around it.
