Shore Cooling and Power Temporary Supply

Andrews Sykes provides temporary cooling & power for Military & Navy

Andrews Sykes was pleased to power shore power & cooling to military vessels and submarines as they entered port in the UAE to restock supplies. UAE is home to many bases and international forces which includes airbases, military camps, navy and air forces. Andrews Sykes provided a temporary solution including 2 x 700kW Chillers along with buffer tank, accessories, cable and hoses. This was supported with auxiliary power which included 2 x 1000kVA (1 running & 1 x standby).

Due to the high ambient temperatures during summer in the UAE & GCC, Andrews Sykes also provides many air conditioning units to the temporary man camps. These include PAC22 (2TR split AC units) and PAC60 (5TR split AC) for the accommodation and HPAC45 (12TR package unit) and HPAC90 (25TR package unit) for the kitchens, warehouses, hangers and other large structures. read more

Shore power & cooling provided to cruiser liner

Dubai is becoming a regional hub for cruise ships and they have recently opened a terminal at Port Rashid exclusively for these vessels. The Arabic Gulf has good cruising conditions which include flat seas and great weather all year round.

Recently, Andrews Sykes was approached by the vessel owner to provide some temporary shore power and cooling for some emergency maintenance work. Due to the urgency of the requirement, they were unable to wait and schedule to visit the dry docks and repair ports. During this maintenance work, the vessel had to turn off the permanent AC & power system while the crew all remained on board. read more
