When the outdoor swimming pool is operating, the compressors of the ice rink experience an increased load while maintaining ice, the heat produced by the operation of the compressors is not simply discharged by cooling into the atmosphere, but is used for heating the outdoor swimming pool, as well as for preheating the internal water networks, using the cogeneration system as efficiently as possible. The outdoor swimming pool area includes a children’s pool (29Co-30Co), a 25 m long pool with 6 lanes (26Co-28Co), a recreation area with a sauna and a jacuzzi. The summer of 2024 also promises to be hot and filled with several events. All current information is posted on the website and on OCR’s social platforms.
