Hydroniq keeps Sølvtrans cool
Norwegian shipyard Aas Mekaniske Verksted has awarded Hydroniq Coolers a contract to deliver its hull-integrated seawater cooling system to a vessel the shipbuilder is constructing for wellboat company Sølvtrans.
Under the contract, Aalesund-based Hydroniq Coolers – formerly Sperre Coolers – will supply its Rack seawater cooling solutions. The Rack cooler differs from other cooling systems as it is integrated in the hull below the main engine room of the vessel.
“When we developed the Rack cooler, we combined the benefits from box and plate coolers, without the disadvantages of either system,” explained Hydroniq Coolers’ chief executive, Inge Bøen. “For example, we combine the energy and space-saving features of a box cooler with the standardised steel structure and constant and efficient cooling of a plate heat exchanger – uniting all these qualities into one system. Additionally, the Rack offers a maintenance-friendliness that neither the box nor plate cooler can compete with,” he added.
The company will manufacture and assemble the equipment at its headquarter in Aalesund, Norway and deliver it to Aas Mekaniske Verksted’s yard at Vestnes in Norway.
The wellboat is newbuild number 204 from Aas Mekaniske Verksted and will have storage capacity of 2,500m3, equivalent to 375 tonnes of live fish. The newbuild vessel will be 69.69m long and 17.80m wide. Depth moulded is 5.90m.
Delivery is scheduled for October 2020.
