York/Devonport Mgmt. Team Wins Multi-Million Dollar Orde
A joint York International Corp./ Devonport Management Limited (DML) team, led by DML, has been awarded a contract valued in excess of $31.2 million by the British Ministry of Defence to supply four Royal Navy Trafalgar class nuclear submarines with new heat management equipment, including non-CFC water chillers and associated chilled and cooling water distribution systems. Three new, custom-designed York chillers will be installed on each submarine. The chillers have been developed by York Marine Systems as part of a U.S. Navy program which sets new standards for ultra compact, lightweight and efficient water chillers for naval cooling applications. The chillers operate on non-ozone depleting HFC-134a refrigerant, and each chiller employs a York/ Frick twin-screw compressor with a a semi-hermetic motor.
