We’re proud to announce Heinen & Hopman will supply the HVAC and Refrigeration for the first DAMEN SeaXplorer, scheduled for delivery in 2019. The 65-metre expedition yacht is a crossover between professional technology and superyacht exclusivity.
Developed through a unique partnership
The SeaXplorer range was developed through a partnership of DAMEN, AMELS, EYOS Expeditions and AZURE Yacht Design and Naval Architecture. The expedition yacht offers 40 days of autonomy without port call and is the world’s first private expedition yacht to comply with the stringent new environmental and safety standards in the IMO Polar Code’s B category.
Explore the unexplored
90% of luxury superyachts never venture any farther than the Mediterranean and the Caribbean Seas and all their islands. The SeaXplorer is especially designed to explore the earth’s true unspoiled destinations while enjoying the highest level of comfort, style and independence. Destinations like Papua New Guinea, Antarctica, Micronesia, Russian Far East, Polynesia and Greenland all belong to the possibilities.
Heinen & Hopman HVAC and Refrigeration
Heinen & Hopman cooperated on the project in a very early stage, providing the base engineering before the vessel was even ordered. Heinen & Hopman will supply the complete HVAC and refrigeration. This includes air conditioning, chilled water unit (with Turbocor compressors), mechanical ventilation, engine room coolers, ventilation openings, heating (mainly by heat recovery instead of electrical), freezer and cold stores, control equipment and ECO notation required equipment.
The following design conditions were requested:
Outside: 35˚C/75%RH and/or 45˚C/37%RH
