Ameresco, a cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, announced its partnership with Alaska Pacific University (APU) to design and upgrade existing infrastructure at the institution's Thomas Training Center on Eagle Glacier, a training ground for APU Nordic Ski Center's winter Olympic athletes and world championship cross country skiing hopefuls. In partnership with Olgoonik Construction Services, an Alaska-based Native Corporation, Ameresco will work to install a new boiler, baseboard heaters, convection heaters, water heaters and retrofit the facilities' existing 750-gallon water tank with a new 500-gallon water tank. Implemented upgrades will help reduce Thomas Nordic Training Center's energy consumption, which will work to advance and improve the facility's wastewater treatment and water conservation efforts. The majority of Ameresco's work will be performed during the summer and fall of 2023. Upon completion, the Thomas Training Center will have the capacity to house 16 residents, including athletes and coaches. Ameresco is based in Framingham, Massachusetts. APU Nordic Ski Center is located on the campus of Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage. It was established in the 1960's as a new model for creating international success in American Nordic skiing.
