Remarkables Ski Field Queenstown, New Zealand

Snow and ice melting system was installed on the outdoor patio of the base building divided by 22 zones.

The Remarkables Ski Field is one of New Zealands premier ski fields, located at a longtitude of 45,05 degrees South, elevation 1 586 m and situated near the North end of the Remarkables Range. The base building has approximately 2 500 m² of heated outdoor patio at a density of 200 W/m². The heating of the patio is to prevent the surface accumulation of ice.

A mixture of 3 680 W and 4 110 W DEVIsnow™ 30 elements were fixed to reinforcing mesh which was seated on 50 mm chairs onto which 100 mm concrete slab was poured.

The heating system was wired as 22 x 230 V zones and controlled by multiple DEVIreg™ 850 controllers. The controllers work in conjunction the base building BMS system and include a manual / auto bypass control. It enables the operator to select auto, manual on and manual off. This had been a design requirement that permits short notice manual changes in the event of rapidly changing weather conditions.
