Marine HVAC: MV Fjell


Background: The Fjell was originally built as a 25,000t barge. But like its sister ship, the Fjord, it was destined for bigger and better things. Fairstar converted the Fjell to a semi-submersible heavy transport for floating and non-floating cargo used by the gas and oil industries, among others. The ­conversion included additional accommodation, a navigation bridge, generator sets for powering ballasting system and auxiliary systems, bow thruster to increase manoeuvrability, a new bow with a bulbous section, and quite a bit more. Including, naturally, an HVAC system that could support the special needs of a ship being submerged up to 90 metres.

Solution: The implications to HVAC of a submersible heavy transport can offer quite the challenge, and require extensive understanding of the pressures involved and air duct space requirements, among many other considerations. The Fläkt Marine team planned, designed, delivered and installed the entire Fjell HVAC system, earning a reputation for what project leaders termed ”…the leading ­performer in enthusiasm and efficiency.” In 2009, the Fjell transported and launched its first ­contract, a chemical product tanker. Since then, the Fjell has continually provided heayy transport services at ports around the world.

Princess Cruises
Skandi Hav

Marine HVAC:
Princess Cruises


Background: Modern cruise lines ­understand the importance of pulling out all the stops for their customers. Even if it means installing a stadium-size viewing screen on the top deck by the outdoor pool. The Coral Princess was the first Princess Cruises ship to go ahead with the supersized outdoor screens. And when it became obvious a screen operating 20 hours a day would need a novel approach to cooling, they chose Fläkt Marine.

Solution: Large outdoor screens require very precise air cooled ­circulation to maintain stable ­operating ­temperatures. The limited space availability on a ­cruise ship deck also requires an innovative approach to ensure the solution is both space-saving and virtually problem-free. Fläkt ­Marine developed a unique cooling system, designing, planning, organising customised materials, delivering and arranging installation during one of the Coral’s scheduled docking periods. The system is considered a success, and since the Coral, the system has been used for large outdoor screens on five other premium cruise ships.

Marine HVAC:
Skandi Hav


Background: The Skandi Hav is an offshore supply vessel, originally purposed for the rigours of the North Sea. Recently, it was refurbished for an even more challenging task, supporting offshore platforms on the Brazilian coast. The refurbishment included the ship’s transformation as a straightforward supply vessel to the equivalent of a small working city, accommodating a variety of onboard disciplines with varying HVAC needs.

Solution: The Fläkt Marine challenge was to ensure the coordination of all HVAC elements with the ongoing refurbishment in other areas, ensuring better cost and work efficiencies and minimising delays while still ensuring a first class marine HVAC system. Working closely with other contractors, we took responsibility for the piping, ducts, and even some of the wiring work, in addition to delivering and installing two new cooling units, pumps, heat exchangers and much more. The coordinated work resulted in few delays to the Skandi Hav’s refurbishment – the ship is now an integral part of Brazilian offshore production.
