The ship builder Chantier Naval Forillon worked together with Webasto to ensure a safe and comfortable working environment for the Canadian Coast Guard.
What were the particular technical challenges? Benjamin Perramant: “The various heating systems, such as the diesel fire heater, electric heaters, and engine recovery heat, had to interact in such a way that they could be activated and deactivated automatically based on different scenarios.” To accomplish this, Webasto worked closely with engineers and technicians from Chantier Naval Forillon and the Canadian Coast Guard. “We centralized the entire heating circuit system and integrated it into the Webasto air conditioning system,” explains Perramant.
Jean-Daniel Minville, Technical Director at Chantier Naval Forillon, praised the collaboration: “I appreciate Webasto's approach to this project — from design to commissioning.”
Chantier Naval Forillon has now equipped six ships with innovative technology from Webasto, with four more ships to follow soon. The crews on the new ships can look forward to cool heads and warm feet.
