HVAC | Fast Crew Supplier 5009

Designed for the quick and safe transport of crew and materials in rivers, harbours, coastal waters and offshore, the Damen 5009 Fast Crew Supplier has an innovative Sea Axe hull form that gives it unparalleled seakeeping behaviour. The vessel is highly fuel-efficient and equipped with everything required to fulfil its various functions.


The challenge for Heinen & Hopman was to design a standard HVAC system for use in different types of accommodation (crew and/or passengers area) without changing the main pipes, compressor, condenser, etc., while achieving in all conditions an indoor temperature of 28°C with 50% RH at 45°C with 45% RH outdoors.

Scope of work

Heinen & Hopman’s scope of work was the design, equipment delivery and commissioning of the HVAC system and refrigeration system in one of Damen Shipyards’ hull yards abroad. The equipment supplied included all parts of the air conditioning and mechanical ventilation system, including refrigeration and control panels.

Our solution

For the different accommodation divisions, an air conditioning system was selected with one air handling unit featuring an optional heating section and one seawater-cooled condensing unit. At the customer’s request, we also designed and made a space reservation for a stand-by air handling unit and seawater-cooled condensing unit. A crossover ducting/plenum between the air handling units makes it easy to switch between the units.


Scope of supply

  • One or two air handling units (customer request)
  • Five axial flow fans
  • Six centrifugal duct fans
  • One galley extractor hood
  • Fire dampers and smoke dampers
  • Cabin units
  • Punica louvres
  • Mist eliminators
  • Sand filters serving engine room
  • Provision store refrigeration
  • Control panels
