Innovation Vessel operating with Thermal Antifouling System TAS

Rostock, 03/05/2016. Box coolers made by HEAT Nord GmbH based on the worldwide patented “Thermal Antifouling System” are more efficient than conventional systems, need less maintenance, decrease operating costs, avoid corrosion and are even environmental-friendly.
Antifouling of box coolers is of great importance to ensure cooling of marine diesel engines and thus their performance. Box coolers without proper working fouling protection lose a significant part of cooling capacity due to strong fouling within short time. Thus the increasing charging temperatures cause higher fuel consumption. Fouling often leads to unscheduled time-consuming cleaning by divers or even extra dry-docking burdening the already low budgets of the shipping companies. Pollutant copper anodes and chlorination systems contaminating our seawater with harmful substances are still used against fouling of box coolers. These copper anodes assembled within the box coolers pose a significant risk of corrosion for sea chest made of steel with bad or damaged coating. All these problems are avoided by the Thermal Antifouling System – TAS, produced by HEAT-Nord GmbH based near Rostock/Germany. Thanks to TAS, extra docking for cleaning as well as repairs of box coolers are not longer necessary.
Dipl.-Ing. Gunter Hoeffer, idea provider, founder and CEO of HEAT-Nord GmbH applied the first “Thermal Antifouling System” (TAS) for a patent in the year 2000. Thereby the cooling bundle is protected segmented-like against fouling by short, user defined interval heating. As far as box coolers are concernd, the fast and effective TAS carries out antifouling measures fully automatically in port operation. Due to this operating principle fouling in box coolers is prevented over a much longer period than in other systems. Maintenance effort and service requirements for box coolers are dramatically reduced by the fully electronically monitored thermal antifouling systems.
HEAT-Nord developed two different Thermal Antifouling systems also with the support of the national and regional (the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) development program for new technologies. Moreover both world wide patented technologies make the installation of copper anodes as well as the application of chlorine redundant. Therefore they contribute to protect our habitat sea. Besides shipping companies benefit from reduced operating costs while saving previous costs for copper and chemicals.
More than 10 years of practical application proves the efficient mode of operation of TAS and numerous ships of well-known shipping companies like Intership, Bockstiegel, Boskalis and DEME were equipped with box coolers and TAS by HEAT- Nord. Since 2002 the Federal office of Navigation and Hydrography (BSH) has already been a satisfied user of the Thermal Antifouling System. Since last year two tugboats of tug boat company Fairplay have been operating in the ports of Northern Europe, from Rotterdam to Gdynia. For cooling of their MTU-engines in combination with a new developed hybrid drive system made by Schottel are 14 box coolers with Thermal Antifouling System (TAS) responsible.
At the ISO-certified HEAT-Nord GmbH every TAS is designed and manufactured individually for every single ship. The production site near Rostock (Northern Germany) is able to meet specific needs and can adjust box coolers and the selected TAS to the conditions on board even in retrofitting without any problems.
The patented technology is used on more than 40 ships worldwide. It makes the use of copper anodes and chlorine redundant, which contributes to the protection of the marine ecosystem. Extra dockings due to cleaning box coolers from fouling as well as repairs of box coolers belong to the past thanks to TAS.
