AF Offshore AeronMollier has just signed a contract for supply of complete AERON Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) equipment to a polar research vessel built at Camel Laird Shipyard in UK.
The Polar Research vessel will be built for the British Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). This is a welcome order for us in a very demanding market our Sales Director Mr. Bjørn Tore Nyland says.
The first time we delivered HVAC Systems to Camel Laird was in 1999, and we have delivered complete HVAC System to other Ships for NERC some years ago. In 2006, we delivered HVAC Systems to their vessel James Cook that was built in Norway. In 2011, we delivered complete HVAC System to Discovery, which was built in Spain. We are very happy that both NERC and Camel Laird has selected us as their supplier of HVAC Systems. All ships have been very successful and the cooperation has been very good, says Nyland.
We appreciate the confidence Camel Laird and NERC has shown by choosing AF Offshore AeronMollier as a supplier for such an advanced vessel, and will do our best to serve our customers in the best way.
The ship will be one of the world's most sophisticated floating research laboratory that can operate in Polar Regions, and will be used in both the Arctic and Antarctic British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The vessel can operate for up to 60 days in sea ice that can give researchers more observations and data. The vessel will be equipped to support oceanographic, marine ecosystems, geophysical and other research activities that helps to understand the changing polar environments.
