Dedicated marine HVAC business unit
Danish naval architectural firm Knud E Hansen A/S has announced the formation of a dedicated business unit focusing on the design of HVAC systems for the maritime market
The new Marine HVAC Design business unit will be independent from equipment makers and can cover everything from acting at an early project phase in close cooperation with an operator, up to 3D modelling to perform advanced detailed design, said Knud E Hansen.
Explaining the motivations behind setting up the new business unit, its General Manager Stéphane Geslin commented: “Over the past 10 years, we have grown and developed to become one of the biggest disciplines within the company. However, even with more than 30 years’ experience under our belt, our sales efforts did not match our visibility in the market. Something needed to change!
“We believe that the HVAC market needs independent experts like Marine HVAC Design. This dedicated HVAC operation will give us opportunities to show our expertise and capabilities based on our strong experience with delivering custom-made, efficient solutions that are based purely on our clients’ interests.”
The establishment of Marine HVAC Design will continue Knud E Hansen's extensive HVAC design capacity. As such, despite being a new company, it will begin activities with a notable set of references. “Our clients come to us because they are confident in our abilities - they know that they don’t have to check twice. Our quality is well-known,” adds Mr. Geslin, who has worked as Senior HVAC Engineer at Knud E Hansen for 17 years.
“Our track record clearly shows that we have the capabilities to perform high quality HVAC work. For example, we are very proud of our work in the defence and security sector, including the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier and type 26 Frigate for the UK Ministry of Defence. This experience also extends to the cruise sector; with our work on the QM2 and, more recently the Edge project.”
