2016-moody-gardens-installationWhen two million tons of ice arrived in October to help build Moody Gardens’ ICE LAND: A Caribbean Christmas, Aggreko’s team of technicians were on hand to keep it frozen for the holiday destination held in one of the southern United States’ warmest climates.

Maintaining a temperature below freezing is critical to the success of any ice attraction, and it’s particularly challenging in southeast Texas where temperatures can reach nearly 90 °F during the critical month of October, when most of the ice carving took place.

Aggreko’s Event Services Division worked with Moody Gardens to beat the heat and designed a custom application engineered to support the ice show and cool more than 25,000 sq. ft. of tented event space to below freezing temperatures. Mahaffey Fabric Structures, Memphis, Tenn., provided the tenting.

The company’s technical experts will monitor the installation via Aggreko’s proprietary Remote Monitoring (ARM) service – a real-time monitoring and diagnostic tool – to ensure everything runs at peak efficiency.

Aggreko is widely known for supporting custom-engineered temporary power and temperature control solutions for large-scale events, such as the Olympic Games, Pan American/Parapan American Games, PGA Tour, Commonwealth Games, Ryder Cup, and FIFA World Cup.
