Hydroniq deliver seawater cooling systems for Sølvtrans

30 June 2020

Norwegian shipbuilder Myklebust Verft has awarded Hydroniq Coolers a contract to deliver a hull-Integrated seawater cooling system to a vessel the yard is building for wellboat Company Sølvtrans. 

The newbuild, no. 76, is the fourth wellboat that Myklebust Verft is building for Sølvtrans, which is the wellboat company for the transport of live salmon and trout.

Hydroniq Coolers will equip the wellboat with its Rack seawater cooling system. The Rack seawater cooler differs from other cooling systems as it is integrated in the hull below the vessel’s main engine room, which frees up valuable space in the engine room.

Marine cooling systems are utilized to reduce temperatures in the ship’s engines and other auxiliary systems through the use of seawater to avoid overheating of the engine and other critical systems.

The newbuild wellboat is based on Kongsberg NVC 389 design. The load capacity is 4,000 cubic meters. Delivery of the wellboat is scheduled for the Q4 of 2021.

Hydroniq Coolers will manufacture and assemble the seawater coolers at its headquarters outside Aalesund, Norway, and deliver it to Myklebust Verft located at Gursken in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway.
