Ace Storage Water Heaters at LEED Minnesota Twins Stadium
On Opening Day— You Want Star Players In Your Dugout!
That’s why the new Minnesota Twins ballpark features Ajax Boiler systems.
When only the best will do, our Ajax Boiler systems deliver league leading performance with exceptional reliability—the kind you expect from a company with one of the strongest benches in the industry. The four vertical generators installed at the Twins ballpark produce 150 gallons of 140˚F hot water per minute—for use in everything from team showers to stadium concession stands.
“The new sports venue itself has been awarded a LEED Gold rating by the USGBC and it received the highest LEED point rating of any MLB ballpark,” notes Chris Pierson, engineer and representative with RM Cotton Inc, who were instrumental in placing the Ajax Boiler equipment. “Ajax Boiler systems fit perfectly into any green and efficient game plan.”
The new stadium seats 39,500 fans and, in addition to numerous concessions, features fifty-four suites, two themed restaurants, a home plate area lounge, the Metro Club dining area and an expansive left field commercial terrace. The Twins own administrative offices and a commuter rail transfer station are also adjacent to the stadium.
