HVAC | Polar Cruise Vessels
Teknotherm will supply the complete HVAC systems and Provision Cooling Plant for up to four new Polar Cruise Ships for Hurtigruten, to be built by Norwegian shipyard Kleven Verft. These Polar cruise vessels will be deployed in Arctic and Antarctic areas and are designed by Rolls-Royce Marine in Norway, and customised specifically for adventure-rich expedition voyages.
Adventure tourism is one of the fastest growing global tourist trends and has witnessed an increase of 195% over just two years. The new state-of-the-art vessels offer a host of activities for adventure seekers, from climbing and kayaking to rib-tours, whale and sea eagle safaris.
Green HVAC equipment
Hurtigruten prioritises sustainability, and the new ships will be equipped with advanced environmentally-friendly technology to reduce emissions, underlining its vision of playing a lead role when it comes to green shipping. Using energy recovery solutions and energy-efficient equipment in the HVAC systems, Teknotherm contributes to the ‘greenness’ of the ships.
The following design conditions were requested:
Inside: 21 – 27˚C/30 – 60%RH
Inside: 18 – 24˚C/30 – 60%RH
Scope of supply
Our latest innovation, the CFU-500 Enigma Cabin Fan Coil Units (CFCU), will be supplied for this project. These CFCUs combine state-of-the-art energy recovery with maximum comfort for the passengers. This system drastically reduces the number of AHUs, size of the chillers and ducting needed onboard.
The following equipment will be supplied:
- Air Conditioning for all accommodation spaces
- Engine room fans
- Fans for technical rooms
- Chilled water systems
