    VACON® AC drives control the temperature, ventilation and humidity level on board for a better air quality and optimized energy consumption.

  • Energy savings and optimal passenger comfort for a cruise ship

    Air-conditioning for passenger comfort is second to propulsion for using energy on a cruise ship and can account for 30-40% of fuel consumption which could be 50,000 tonnes of Bunker oil for a large cruise ship each year. The AB-QM, Pressure Independent Balancing and Control Valve, (PIBCV), can save 25-30% of HVAC energy costs compared to conventional distribution designs, equating to about US$1 million each year at today’s oil prices for a large modern cruise ship.
