Expedition cruise ship heating
Our sturdy heating systems for expedition cruise ships keep everyone onboard warm and comfortable during remote voyages in icy waters. The Heinen & Hopman group has extensive experience in designing HVAC systems for ships operating in temperatures as low as -50°C. Executed in durable materials, all our HVAC equipment is reliable and very suitable for seagoing vessels.
A substantial part of the total energy consumption of an expedition cruise ship comes from the HVAC system. In our quest to develop energy saving HVAC technology without compromising on comfort, we aim to offer our clients cost effective solutions with a high return on investment. Our innovative products and advanced automation technology result in significant efficiency gains. Our SCADA system for example acts as a complete energy management system. Through collection and analysis of information from a big number of sensors in the HVAC systems, we can log how the vessel is operated. By performing an energy analysis of the vessel and adjusting settings and programming based on the actual vessel operation data, optimized energy management is achieved.
The HVAC system needs to be disinfected regularly to prevent the development of bacteria and mold, which may harm the health of passengers onboard. Our HVAC equipment is designed and installed in such a way that the equipment is easily accessible for cleaning and maintenance work. In case of a system malfunction, the problem can easily be located thanks to an advanced automation systems, which centrally monitors and controls the complete HVAC system. Remote access to the HVAC system through an internet connection allows us to provide remote service and troubleshooting, avoiding long response time and expensive onboard service engineer visits.
