Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions (WTS) agree with Italy's Roccheggiani to supply Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems to the offshore market.
The HVAC and air handling specialists join forces to offer improved solutions to shipyards for newbuilding and after sales projects.
WTS, which is among the leaders in complete HVAC system supply and Roccheggiani which is a leading supplier of air handling units, fan coil units and supply/extract devices will jointly market their products to the offshore market. WTS believes the co-operation agreement will increase its level of service supply and reduce delivery times for customers.
The agreement was signed in recently by WTS Managing Director, HVAC Offshore, Helle Hundseid and Roccheggiani Chief Executive Officer Marco Roccheggiani and will run for an initial period of three years.
Stephen Lawton, Sales Director, HVAC Offshore, Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions, said:
“Maintaining a strong position in the HVAC market requires us to deliver better solutions and superior products and service, while being able to keep control of costs for our customers. Developing a closer co-operation between two strong players like WTS and Roccheggiani means we can combine our skills and experience to reach those common goals.”
WTS and Roccheggiani have already collaborated successfully. In 2012 they joined forces to win a contract to supply an HVAC system for a semi-submersible ultra deepwater and harsh environment drillship under construction at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering for Odfjell.
