Olympia Millennium Launched

Jasper, Alberta, Canada

The OLYMPIA Millennium line of ice resurfacers was officially unveiled today, setting a new standard for ice resurfacing machines (IRM). In addition to the OLYMPIA Millennium; is the OLYMPIA Millennium Plus with increased water tank and snow bin capacity; the OLYMPIA Millennium Cellect (the world's first NiCad Battery powered ice resurfacer) featuring the world leading Solectria technology, and the OLYMPIA Millennium Direct, the world first non-polluting, plug and go, direct electric powered IRM.

In response to the needs of its customers, Resurfice Corp. of Elmira Ontario, Canada began development work over a year ago to set a new standard for ice resurfacers. While the new, streamlined body of the OLYMPIA Millennium attracts attention, there is a lot more to the changes than just a cosmetic job.

True to it's reputation of being the innovator in the field of ice resurfacing, Resurfice decided to build in all the features an ice resurfacer should have as standard equipment. Andy Schlupp, founder of Resurfice summed it up this way; " our customers shouldn't have to make compromises when it comes to buying a safe, efficient, ice resurfacer. Emission controls, a board brush, automatic snow breaker and an automatic towels lift are as essential to doing a proper ice resurfacing as the OLYMPIA's precision controlled conditioner." The end result was the OLYMPIA Millennium.

Every OLYMPIA Millennium built has an emission control system to dramatically reduce, and in the case of the OLYMPIA Cellect and the OLYMPIA Millennium Direct, eliminate air pollution. To enhance and maximize ease of use and safety for the operator of the OLYMPIA, the dash has been designed in a wrap around configuration with the knobs and levels of the past replaced with push button controls.
Every OLYMPIA Millennium has a board brush, automatic snow breaker and automatic towel lift included.

By streamlining it's manufacturing process, Resurfice Corp. in Elmira, Ontario, Canada has achieved economies of scale which have reduced costs and resulted in more value and performance for the customer's dollar.

When you compare an OLYMPIA Millennium with any other ice resurfacer in the world it is clear that the OLYMPIA Millennium has set a new standard for the industry to strive towards. OLYMPIA Millennium, what every ice resurfacers should be.

(Elmira Ont. Canada) - Resurfice Corp. unveiled the Olympia CELLECT, the world’s first nickel cadmium (NiCad) powered ice resurfacer, at the annual Ice Skating Institute Conference and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Olympia CELLECT combines the Olympia’s world leading ice resurfacing technology with the cutting edge EV (electric vehicle) components and proprietary drive systems of Solectria Corporation of Wilmington, MA.

In response to an industry demand for a pollution free, safe, efficient, cordless electric powered ice resurfacer, the Olympia CELLECT sets a new standard in high performance and low operational costs while producing zero emissions.

The Solectria integrated EV drive system and the nicad battery array provides enough power to do more that 20 ice resurfacings between charges, far exceeding the capability of any other battery powered electric ice resurfacing machines presently on the market.

Using an on-board, microprocessor-controlled, battery charger, a recharge of 15 minutes provides enough power for a single resurfacing. The SAFT NiCad batteries are ideally suited to cold temperature operations.

The Olympia CELLECT has a top speed of 18 mph and can easily handle a slope in excess of 20 degrees when fully loaded.

The trade marked name CELLECT was chosen to highlight the fact that the power source is from long-life SAFT NiCad battery cells.

Adding to the drama of the unveiling of the Olympia CELLECT prototype was the unique paint and decal job. Extreme Colors paint from BASF created display of ever changing colors on the Olympia CELLECT, as the people moved around the ice resurfacer. The paint mimics the iridescence found on soap bubbles, butterfly wings and sea shells.

The Olympia CELLECT is the latest in an ever growing Olympia line of ice resurfacing equipment from Resurfice Corp. Resurfice Corp is the leading developer of ice resurfacing technology, with over 15 hundred Olympia ice resurfacers operating in more than 30 countries around the world.
