Dometic Marine Supplies AC to Indian Patrol Boats

Press Release
Friday, February 08, 2013

Dometic Marine has signalled its intent for expansion in India by supplying air conditioning equipment to patrol boats protecting the oil and gas industry in Mumbai.

 

The 14-boat project requires Dometic Marine to install its direct expansion self-contained units, providing 81,000 BTUs of cooling capacity.

 

The boats, built by SHM Shipcare, belong to the Indian government and are used to patrol the waterways in India.


The first vessel was launched in November last year with the whole project set to be finished by the end of 2013.


Ben Haynes, Dometic Marine International Technical Sales Manager, said: “The equipment is compact and easy to maintain and is therefore ideal for what can be challenging conditions.
“Plus, we provide customer service in Mumbai for after-sales support.”


Dometic Marine is working to strengthen its position in India and has more plans in the coming months.


“We have other projects in the pipeline in India,” added Haynes, who is optimistic about future opportunities in the area. “Twenty four months ago, we had not sold anything in India.”


The air conditioning, toilet, refrigeration and galley specialists are targeting rapid growth in the region with the help of their new distributors and servicing dealers.


Dan Kris Power Systems is the representative for Dometic Marine in the region, establishing contacts and offering technical support through service, training and commissioning.


Savio Martin, owner of Dan Kris Power, commented: “We are excited about the prospects and opportunities in India and continue to nurture our relationships with key contacts in the region. “This project is proceeding well with the first boat already completed.”
