    New KNUD E. HANSEN business unit dedicated 100% to HVAC

    Danish Naval Architectural firm KNUD E. HANSEN has announced the formation of a dedicated business unit – MARINE HVAC DESIGN – that will specialise in the design of HVAC systems for the maritime market. This 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, the company said in its press release.

    Explaining the motivations behind setting up the new business unit, MARINE HVAC DESIGN General Manager Stéphane Geslin comments: “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, MARINE HVAC DESIGN will begin activities with an already 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.

    MARINE HVAC DESIGN will operate using the same principles of client-focus and versatility that have earned KNUD E. HANSEN its renown in this particular field of expertise.

    Throughout the design and engineering process, MARINE HVAC DESIGN will be able to implement numerous tools to increase the efficiency of a vessel’s HVAC system. This includes the utilisation of various specialised software packages to accomplish tasks such as 2D and 3D visualisations, 3D coordination, outfitting and steel module design, and the calculation of heat loads. MARINE HVAC DESIGN will be headquartered in Elsinore, Denmark at KNUD E. HANSEN’s headquarters.
