First ALSIUS Condensing Unit for Provision Cooling Plant on River Cruise Ship


On 4th June 2010 HEFKO Products GmbH received an order from R&M Ship Technologies for delivery of one condensing unit as well as ten evaporators for cooling of the provision cooling stores on board of the new AROSA river cruise ship currently under construction.

After a short lead time of only 4 weeks the custom made condensing unit was delivered just-in-time at the shipyard in Rostock, Germany. The unit consists of two separate cooling systems. The first system is for normal cooling (+4/+10°C) and the second one is for deep freezing (-25°C).

Both systems are integrated as a compact unit with a common chassis and equipped with two semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors. For each system there is a separate sea water cooled condenser available on the unit.
