Update: Progress on Condenser Replacement

January 5, 2024: Work to install the new condenser at Queens Place Emera Centre is progressing. In response to the failure occurring before the planned installation of the new unit, Municipal staff were able to react effectively by bringing the contractors involved to the site immediately and commencing the project.

Work began on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, to remove the failed unit and hoist the new stainless steel one into place. At this time, all work to complete the installation has concluded and been commissioned. The refrigeration plant has resumed operation and staff are currently working towards reinstating the arena ice which will take several days. The approaching weather system forecast for Sunday evening/Monday is being monitored closely with consideration made to minimize any impacts the storm may have on the project.

The indoor track will reopen for regular hours Saturday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The fitness centre and fitness studio at Queens Place Emera Centre remain in operation.
The re-opening of the arena will be confirmed with posts on the websites and Facebook pages for Queens Place Emera Centre and Region of Queens Municipality.
