As part of the MCCAC’s Electric Vehicles for Municipalities (EVM) Program, the City of Airdrie purchased a 2019 Olympia IceBear Ice Resurfacer Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV).

“The IceBear has been great. The overall functionality, battery life and new technology of the battery charger has been really good. We saw less draw on the batteries over the course of the day with the same amount of usage compared to the previous battery operated machine. The charger is more efficient and runs less than the old one. Overall really good so far.”
