Nouvelles des membres de l'IIF : GEA installe un système au CO2 transcritique dans des bateaux de croisière (en anglais)

Le groupe international GEA a signé un contrat avec P&O Cruises, le plus grand exploitant de navires de croisière au monde, pour sa nouvelle technologie de froid industriel transcritique au CO2.

The IIR member GEA is a global equipment and process technology provider. Among its different specialties, GEA provides high performance equipment for the marine sector, including air conditioning, refrigeration and freezing technologies.

GEA recently signed a contract for a transcritical CO2 refrigeration system with P&O Cruises, the world's largest commercial cruise ship operator. GEA has already installed this refrigeration technology on board P&O Cruises 2,000-passenger ship Arcadia, where it will deliver the energy-efficient cooling supply for all of the ship’s food and beverage refrigeration units.



The modular transcritical-type CO2 plants operate using multiple GEA Bock compressors, which are ideally suited to the high pressures of CO2 refrigeration systems. Redundancy is built in the plant, so that failure of one or even multiple compressors will not cause the system to stop working.

GEA says it has harnessed more than 100 years of expertise in the design and construction of industrial refrigeration plants to develop the new transcritical CO2 technology, specifically for use on ships.
