  • Arrange shut-down of ice plant with the refrigeration contractor (currently Kim Turnbull of RKT Mechanical Inc.)
  • Complete year-end clean-up, such that dry floor area is ready for early Spring rentals

Equipment Maintenance:

  • In consultation with the PACC Manager, arrange for the following equipment to be maintained in good condition at all times: dehumidifier, hot water tank used for pebbling water, ice burner, scraper, and Jet Ice system
  • Daily upkeep of preventative logs and manuals for the ice plant including visual plant room inspection with temperature and pressure readings. Weekly checks on compressor oil as needed
  • Advise and make recommendations to the PACC Manager with respect to maintenance for the refrigeration plant condenser, chiller, compressor, brine system, etc.
  • Ensure that the operating and safety standards are in place to meet required inspections

 

Hours of Work:

It is expected that the Head Ice Technician will be available or will have made provision for back-up during hours of operation as weekends, weekdays and evenings are required.  The hours of work vary dependent on ice maintenance requirements and ice usage.  The Head Ice Technician will be required to schedule and adjust hours with the PACC Manager to meet the needs of the PACC both on a regular weekly basis and for special events such as bonspiels, pop-up curling and hosting of regional, provincial, or national on-ice events.
