Wilhelmsen provides the complete refrigeration solution - we offer a wide range of high quality refrigerants, maintenance equipment and spares to keep your systems working at their optimum.
There are a few reasons why refrigeration systems demand special attention. The most obvious one is that they perform a vital function on board - maintain the correct temperatures for the preservation of cargo, provisions and providing a comfortable climate for passengers and crew. But beyond their primary purpose, keeping things cool, refrigerants and refrigeration systems are also subject to close environmental regulation. And those regulations change constantly.
The challenge for shipowners and operators is to make sure their systems keep running smoothly, and that they remain fully compliant with all current regulations. We provide the complete refrigeration solution. We offer a wide range of high quality refrigerants, maintenance equipment and spares to keep your systems working at their optimum.
We have suffered in the past from low quality refrigerants with high moisture content. This has resulted in clogged and broken down systems, and throwing away provisions due to high temperatures in the freezers. Low quality refrigerants is not an option for us.
