The City of Cambridge has purchased two new electric ice resurfacing machines, to try and cut down on emissions inside local arenas.
“It performs the same as a propane unit, but the operators don’t have the exhaust fumes to deal with. And the public doesn’t see it either,” Mike Hausser, the director of operations for the City of Cambridge said.
The city didn’t have to look far for the machines. Both units were purchased from Elmira based manufacturer Olympia.
“We’re really pleased to be able to go through our standard municipal procurement processes and have competitive bids. And be able to purchase local products and have them operating here in Cambridge,” Hausser said.
