DANFOSS - AERON Use Danfoss Frequency Converters In HVAC Systems On Board Ships

AERON is a company who deliver complete ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC) to ships. Their main office is located in Flekkefjord, Norway and there is a subsidiary company in Shanghai. AERON operate on a global basis and deliver HVAC systems around the world via sales agents, some of whom are also certified to provide local service.

The relationship between Danfoss Drives and AERON was established approximately 10 years ago. AERON using frequency converters for the first time was seen as a big innovation and increased the quality image of our products. By using frequency converters to control the fans, we increased the precision of the regulation of the air volume in proportion to the pressure in the ventilation system.

A ship that operates world wide must have a HVAC system designed to cope with “worst case scenario”, facing tropical heat temperatures above 40°C or very cold climates with temperatures way below 0°C.

Achieving a nice climate indoors in the tropics requires much more cooling/air volume than in a “normal” climatic environment. A frequency converter can easily regulate the air volume automatically.

Using frequency converters will save energy, reduce noise and improve the climate indoors. It will also make it easier for the customer to reduce or switch off the air flow in some parts of the ship if rooms/cabins are not in use.

AERON use frequency controlled fans in accommodation rooms, technical rooms and in the machine room. The drives can keep a constant over pressure in the machine room and supply the room with an air volume according to the requirement of the motor. This results in energy savings and a nice climate in the machine room.

Today’s modern offshore ships have a lot of technical equipment which produce a lot of heat. Controlling the temperature by using frequency converters gives you a flexible solution, the air volume and cooling requirement can be adapted to the outside temperature and power loss from the technical equipment. You save energy and reduce the use of cooling equipment or reduce admission of saline air which can damage technical equipment.

95% of all projects Aeron is involved in are delivered with one or more frequency converters, both onshore and offshore. Many years ago only a few ships were equipped with drives, but now this is standard world wide.

Danfoss frequency converters have an intuitive menu with a full text display which is a big advantage compared to other drives suppliers who use number codes instead of text.

Aeron is a global company and it is important for Danfoss to co-operate with a company who offer world wide service and short delivery times. Danfoss has a very good service network which makes it possible for our service technicians to get in contact with Danfoss customers wherever they are in the world.

Some of Aeron’s projects need special adaptations in certain applications which are pre-programmed by Danfoss. The FC102 has a built in smart logic controller which makes it possible to add advanced functions.
