Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning specialist Dometic Marine has recently completed delivery of its latest custom built air conditioning system to high performance yacht builder, Baltic Yachts in Finland. The 270,000 BTU system has been custom designed and manufactured by Dometic Marine Engineers for the new build ’Panamax Ketch’ and provides a lightweight and quiet system in accordance with owner’s representative specifications for the 60 metre sailing yacht.
The air conditioning system includes a 270,000 BTU Marine Air customised chiller and WhisperCool AT-DC air handlers with exceptionally quiet brushless DC fan motors, as well as a fully networked onboard control system and electric heat option to heat or cool individual cabins. Confirming Dometic Marine’s commitment to supporting its OEM customers, the company’s expert team has assisted Baltic Yachts throughout design and layout stages, reviewing plans and measurements to ensure the system fully meets the owner’s requirement. At the end of the installation process, expected autumn 2010, the project team will verify the system to ensure all equipment meets Dometic’s exacting standards as well as provide on-site training and complete documentation for crew.
“Panamax Ketch is a unique, fully customised build with very specific and challenging requirements for air conditioning onboard. The project proves our capability and commitment as a specialist supplier of customised solutions to boat builders globally. I am delighted that our experienced project team have been able to satisfy the client, by custom building the lightest and quietest system possible for the level of BTUs it offers,” comments Gustaf Hamrén, OEM Key Account Manager for Nordic & Eastern Europe at Dometic Marine and Project Manager for the latest Baltic Yachts project.
