Bringing the Disney magic across the globe

“Your commitment never ceases to amaze me”

James MaCloud, Ice Operations Technical Manager, Feld Entertainment

At Energyst, we are constantly looking for ways to test and improve our solutions and services.

Sometimes this testing and tweaking is successful, sometimes it isn’t. But we always keep trying. That combination of engagement and expertise is what Feld really liked about Energyst. So much even, that the 1-year contract we signed for the European tour became a 5-year contract for the European and the Asian tour! A contract we earned by really giving all of our professional and personal energy to the project.

Feld Entertainment and Energyst hit it off great.

Looking back, maybe this is not so much of a surprise when you look at the brand values of Energyst and Feld Entertainment. Both brands have passion as a core value. Feld’s James MaCloud (Ice Operations Technical Manager) noticed our engagement straight away: “You clearly and concisely answer my emails within 24 hours. When I call you, you always pick up the phone. What’s more: Energyst is always on-site. You are really part of the team!”

"We already had a good track record in powering and cooling ice skating rinks in the Netherlands. We were looking for the next step."

“The show must and will always go on”

The show must and will always go on.

Energyst and Feld Entertainment agreed on a one-year contract for engineering the power generation and temperature control for the European tour of Disney On Ice. Paridaans continues “During that first year, we really got to know each other in the most positive way.”

Rob Munsters (Operations Supervisor Benelux at Energyst) remembers all the effort his team put into (and is still putting into) the Disney On Ice project. Munsters: “When we started doing the European tour, the chillers that were used for the ice rink floor of Disney On Ice were good. But only one chiller per floor was used. From an insurance standpoint this was unacceptable – the show must and will always go on. Basically, it was easy enough to tackle this specific challenge: add one chiller as a backup! This double-chiller solution was good enough for the European Tour, but not for the Asian one.”

For the Asian tour, transportation made the challenge much more complex.

“The double-chiller configuration could not be shipped, because it didn’t meet the so-called CSC requirements,” says Munsters. So, Energyst had to make one that did. Munsters continues: “Our team engineered a custom-built CSC double-chiller solution especially for Disney On Ice. And added 24/7 around the globe service to it. That way, Feld had a ‘plug & play’ safe solution they could use and set up anywhere they wanted.

To meet CSC requirements we designed a double-chiller that looks like a container on the outside, but on the inside has all the technical specs of a chiller solution. We basically put a custom-designed chiller in a container frame, so it could be transported by sea from Rotterdam to Japan. Japan being the kick-off country of the Disney On Ice Asian tour.”


BB Promotion, Germany’s largest producer of musicals and other live entertainment events, turned to Energyst to provide the temporary power supply for the CATS musical tour across the Benelux. "From the very beginning of planning up to the first première, Energyst provided excellent and professional support. All changes were quickly dealt with and the material is very reliable."



Reliable cooling is essential for the F&B industry. Not just because companies have to comply with regulations. It’s really all about preserving foodstuffs and beverages from spoiling and damage, ensuring business as usual for hundreds of outlets: “Hundreds of thousands of consumers cannot go without their groceries!”
