Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology KNUD E. HANSEN New office in Spain Danish ship design expert Knud E. Hansen has opened a new office in Cadiz, Spain. The office will specialize in HVAC, under the brand-name Marine HVAC Design providing engineering solutions for the Spanish market and around the world. It will be involved in all stages, from conceptual through detailed design, as well as coordination and integration of systems, project management and on-site supervision. Finn Wollesen, Managing Director, Knud E. Hansen, stated »Spain represents a growing market with vast opportunities in the maritime sector. A local office and permanent presence will allow us to focus specifically on the Spanish market. The Spanish team is comprised of HVAC engineers that have been part of the company for up to 10 years. n TEKNOTHERM Orders for fishing vessels from Spain The Norwegian HVAC supplier Teknotherm has been awarded the delivery of complete HVAC systems from Spanish shipyard Astilleros de Murueta, for a Live Fish Carrier (LFC) owned by Alsaker Fjordbruk AS in western Norway, scheduled for delivery in 2020. The vessel, to be named »Kristoffer Tronds«, is 90,7 m long and 18,6 m wide, and has a well TYFOROP Low viscosity refrigerant for use down to -50°C capacity of more than 5,000 m3. In addition, Teknotherm received an order for the delivery of complete HVAC systems to newbuild no. 480 to be built at Gondan Shipyard in Spain, for the shipowner Prestfjord AS. The 77 m long stern trawler is designed by Rolls-Royce (NVC 372), and will have accommodation for 29 persons. Delivery is scheduled for May 2020.n With a new product, the Hamburg-based company Tyforop Chemie wants to establish higher cooling capacities with lower energy costs on the market. Whether for the sea transport of tropical fruits, meat and other temperature-controlled goods or for the shock freezing of fish in industrial fishing, the demands placed on modern refrigerants in shipping are high and varied. The goods must be kept at a constant low temperature for their shelf life or the freshly caught fish must be reliably frozen to sub-zero temperatures in seconds. In addition, high-performance refrigerants must have another important property in the area of food transport - absolute non-toxicity. Only in this way can contamination of the goods with substances harmful to health be ruled out in the event of leaks. Tyforop Chemie now offers »Tyfoxit F50«, a glycol-free refrigerant based on potassium formate that is easily biodegradable. According to the manufacturer, this refrigerant with extremely low viscosity is harmless to health and suitable for refrigerated shipping when used in refrigeration systems with indirect cooling. The finished mixture has an extreme temperature resistance of -50° to +80°C and has already proven itself at sea, for example in the shock freezing of freshly caught wild salmon in the Pacific North Polar Sea or on banana freighters from Central America to Europe. According to the manufacturer, »Tyfoxit F50« makes it possible to achieve higher cooling capacities in existing plants and at the same time reduce energy costs. When redesigning refrigeration systems, the new method makes it possible to install systems with more compact dimensions on the reefer vessels. The non-toxic, almost odourless liquids each contain a borax-, nitrite-, amine- and phosphate-free inhibitor system. The long-term corrosion protection of »Tyfoxit F50« includes all materials commonly used in refrigeration plant construction. n NOVENCO MARINE & OFFSHORE RoPax-Orders from China Guangzhou Shipyard International in China has placed an order for Novenco Marine & Offshore to deliver full HVAC/R systems, design and commissioning for a RoPax ferry to Algerian shipping company ENTMV along with 2+2 DFDS RoPax ferries. The cooperation between Guangzhou Shipyard International and Novenco Marine & Offshore goes back more than 30 years and has resulted in Novenco systems in more than 100 vessels to international shipowners, including many Danish shipowners like Norden, Maersk and Torm. »The recent ferry orders are a result of many years of cooperation with GSI, but also an increased focus on strengthening the commercial ties between China and Denmark in general. Both GSI and Novenco participated in the Denmark Days a year ago, where HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark joined an event in Guangzhou. This national support benefits companies in Denmark like Novenco, because even though shipbuilding is outsourced to China, many of the related deliveries will be awarded back to Danish companies,« said Lasse Lindberg Nielsen, CEO at Novenco Marine & Offshore. n 52 HANSA International Maritime Journal – 156.

Equipment & Suppliers Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology HEINEN & HOPMAN Cooperation with Saab/ Damen for submarines Dutch HVAC specialist Heinen & Hopman has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Saab/Damen to support the so-called »Walrus replacement submarine programme«. The Royal Netherlands Navy owns four Walrus-class diesel-electric submarines which entered the fleet in the early nineties. Contracts for the submarine construction are expected to be awarded in 2021 with the first units arriving in 2027. Already in 2015, shipbuilding group Damen entered into a partnership with Saab for this programme. With the signing of the MoU, the parties »have expressed their intention to further discuss and explore the possibilities for a mutual successful and fruitful cooperation«, it was said. n CARRIER TRANSICOLD Leasing Company to invest in PrimeLINE ONE Textainer has placed a 1,000-unit order for the PrimeLINE ONE by Carrier Transicold and Singamas Container Holdings Limited, making it the first major container leasing company to acquire this new refrigerated container. »As a major supplier of refrigerated containers to shipping lines around the world, we have one of the industry’s youngest and fastest-growing reefer fleets,« said John Simmons, vice president, Refrigerated Containers, Textainer. The PrimeLINE ONE was developed through a joint initiative of Carrier Transicold and Singamas to provide a solution that takes advantage of Carrier’s Prime- LINE container refrigeration system, which is assembled on-site into a custom-configured container in a streamlined manufacturing process. It is said to provides »an alternative to the traditional approach of bolting a complete refrigeration system to the front end of an insulated shipping container«. n HANSA International Maritime Journal – 156.
