Innovative chiller solution keeps cruise ship running on schedule

Carrier Marine & Offshores experts provided coordination, engineering, project management, and logistics support to assure the delivery and smooth installation of chillers aboard an impressive cruise ship.

Holland America Line needed to replace the aging chillers aboard their ms Prinsendam cruise ship, but had a very narrow window in the itinerary to accomplish the refit. Due to the tight quarters and confined access, there were additional challenges to fit the AquaEdge™ centrifugal chillers aboard into the machinery space. Technically and logistically, Carrier met the challenge by arranging shipment of the chiller in pieces for re-assembly aboard, along with limited adaptations to fit through the ship’s watertight doorsill according to the ship’s schedule.

The Carrier Marine & Offshore group provides specialized heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and services for shipbuilders, ship owners and operators worldwide. With offices and service engineers based around the world, the Carrier Marine & Offshore team leverages its design expertise, energy auditing, retro commissioning, and maintenance to meet the particular needs of marine customers.
