Norwegian provider of marine cooling systems, Hydroniq Coolers, has entered into a strategic partnership with Danish plate heat exchanger supplier SonFlow. Hydroniq will integrate SonFlows plate heat exchangers and pumps in its offering towards shipowners, shipyards and designers within the maritime and shipping industries.
This partnership gives shipowners access to a more complete portfolio of marine cooling solutions. It allows yards and shipowners to choose and tailor packages and solutions that are optimal for the criteria and requirements of their specific vessels, says Inge Bøen, Hydroniq CEO.
With the climate challenges the world is facing today, installed heat exchangers and pumps need to be even more energy efficient and eco-friendly. They need to make better use of energy, leading to replacement of old and inefficient plate heat exchangers and pumps. In many cases, we can offer to replace these old plate packs, with our new and energy-efficient plates, without having to change the existing plate heat exchanger frames and pipe installations, says Aage Soendergaard Nilsen, the companys CEO.
Our Pleat and Rack seawater cooling solutions are favoured by our customers. However, some also prefer the traditional plate heat exchangers, which we can now offer through the partnership with SonFlow, says Inge Bøen.
