PSA signs a frame agreement with Hydroniq Coolers
25 October 2019
PSA Marine (Pte) Ltd has awarded Hydroniq Coolers a frame agreement which makes the Norwegian technology company the shipowner’s supplier of seawater cooling systems.
Under the frame agreement, which is valid for two years, Hydroniq Coolers will supply its Pleat seawater cooler to any new vessels in PSA Marine’s fleet. In addition, Hydroniq Coolers will provide service and spare parts, if and when required, to the shipowner’s current vessel fleet through a local storage facility in Singapore.
Marine cooling systems are utilized to reduce temperatures in the ship’s engines and other auxiliary systems through use of seawater to avoid overheating of the engine and other critical systems.
The patented Pleat is a module-based titanium cooler for seawater to freshwater, with design pressure 6 bars and design temperature of 0-95°C.
Hydroniq Coolers delivers marine cooling solutions to vessels that operate within offshore, shipping, cruise, passenger transport, fishery and fish farming.
