Hydroniq to deliver seawater cooling system to VARD

Norwegian VARD has contracted Hydroniq Coolers to deliver a hull-integrated seawater cooling system for a cable laying vessel the shipbuilder is designing and building for Prysmian Group.

Under the contract, Šlesund-based Hydroniq Coolers will deliver its Hydroniq Rack seawater cooling solution that will be integrated in the hull below the main engine room of the vessel. Marine cooling systems are utilized to reduce temperatures in the ships’ engines and other auxiliary systems through the use of seawater.

The Hydroniq Rack seawater cooler offers several operational and economic advantages compared with traditional plate heat exchangers. The system provides a simplified and short pipeline for seawater and has a very low-pressure loss which reduces energy consumption for seawater pumps and thus lowers fuel consumption.

The newbuild cable layer is developed to perform complex installation operations, supported by a variety of burial systems, including heavy-duty ploughs, and state-of-the-art positioning and seakeeping systems.

The cable layer is designed by Vard Design in Šlesund, Norway. The vessel is scheduled for delivery from Vard Brattvaag in Norway, in 4Q 2020.

Hydroniq Coolers will deliver its seawater cooling system to Vard Brattvaag in the Q1 of 2020.
