Stork To Cool Canadian Navy Iroquois Class Ships

Stork Canada Inc. has been awarded a contract to design and manufacture twelve 125- ton-refrigerant (TonR) screw-type chillers for the modernization of Iroquois class ships of the Canadian Department of National Defense. The first units are scheduled for delivery in May.

The screw type chillers will be designed to meet naval shock and vibration requirements and are the first of their type to be supplied to the Canadian Navy.

These units have been chosen for naval and cruise ship installation because of their large capacity rating, relatively compact size, and low noise and vibration emissions.

Stork Canada designs, supplies and manufactures HVAC and refrigeration systems for the marine industry, and provides conceptual designs, specifications and commissioning services for marine and offshore vessels. The company also supplies and services pumps, and has recently introduced a new line of screw chillers, high efficiency fans and low noise air handlers.

Stork Canada, with annual sales exceeding $11 million, has fortified its position as an industry leader in the U.S. and Canadian maritime industries. Trends in this maritime manufacturing segment mirror that of other industry supplier segments — companies are increasingly called upon to provide complete package solutions, from manufacture through installation.. Stork Canada designs, supplies and commissions HVAC systems. In the near term, the company predicts this trend will continue, with partnerships forged between general HVAC equipment manufacturers and HVAC system designers. In the long term it could go one step further, with partnerships with shipbuilders and system design suppliers. With the advent of larger ships, vessel owners require quieter, energy conserving ships, and Stork Canada has positioned itself to capitalize on these factors.
