Getting the vessel ready for Tropical climates.
Supply and installation of air conditioning throughout accommodation areas, galley and wheelhouse.
The original ducting lead back to a central room aft. It was agreed to install a cooling battery in line with the ducting which supplied sufficiently cool air throughout the accommodation, which prevented the accommodation from having to be dismantled.
A standalone system was supplied and fitted in the galley and wheelhouse, as the ducting was restrictive
Additional works included, installing air ducting to the hydraulic room, and auxiliary fans into electrical cabinets and the wheelhouse console.
Commissioning and testing.
We had very limited time in order to get the vessel ready for a contract in West Africa, with one month to prepare and get the vessel ready for the voyage, we understood that A/C was a critical requirement for our crews comfort. We had a number of discussions on the most time efficient way to install the A/C. We decided that it was best to install the cooling battery in line with the fans. This system worked really well, and kept our crew comfortable during the voyage. The other works proved very important as some of the areas on board were reaching up on plus 40 degrees and the additional fans and cooling air was the only way to keep equipment from tripping on thermal overload.
We are delighted to have utilised KER Group again on yet another project, and they proved once again why they are the experts in keep it cool.
