Control optimisation for
existing heaters and coolers
A control optimisation upgrade for existing heaters and coolers improves system functionality and flexibility
Ships have different fuel heating and cooling arrangements depending on their type, operational needs and design.
For any fuel system to be able to remain fully functional and adaptable to different fuel types and qualities, control optimisation is sometimes needed. It ensures that the cooling/heating process works without any issues and is properly adapted to any fuel system upgrades. This is especially important with current fuel mixes, where uncertain or unclear properties are being introduced.
Auramarine offers a review of your existing heater and cooler systems from an engineering and system process perspective, recommends the necessary improvements and if needed, carries out the modifications.
For example, the coolers installed on board a ship when it was originally built, may not still be able to cope with the requirements of new fuels, in which case, we may specify a new optimised control system.
The variety of heating and cooling arrangements on board ships means that Auramarine’s control optimisation systems are always tailored to fit each specific existing system design. This ensures the best possible performance.
Control optimisation can also enhance trouble-shooting capabilities. Properly optimised systems can detect system failures or deficiencies at an early stage, preventing malfunctions or instabilities in fuel supply.
Depending on the scope of the technical solution, upgrades are typically made during docking.
Every ship is different from a technical, trading and operational perspective. However, for all retrofits some elements remain essential, namely cost-efficiency and short lead times from design to delivery.
Auramarine is at your service to help you navigate the complexities of class compliance, and find the safest and most cost-efficient retrofit solution for your fuel supply system. We also keep the future in mind, ensuring your system is as flexible as it can be to accommodate change. Contact us to find the best solution to meet your ship’s needs.
