Heinen & Hopman has built up an extensive expertise in the design and installation of HVAC technology for the merchant sector. While the term merchant fleet encompasses a highly diverse range of vessels, Heinen & Hopman uses the term to refer to the maritime transport fleet only. We supply systems for passenger vessels, RoRo vessels (ferries), combinations of the two (RoRo-Pass), and various types of cargo vessels (container, bulk, vehicle transport, oil and gas), among others.
Our in-house engineering and production departments enable us to work flexibly, and we have extensive testing and training facilities. A global network supplies both service and spare parts. The main HVAC equipment supplied by Heinen & Hopman to the maritime shipping sector includes heating, mechanical ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration.
