Case Study: Undisruptive and Effective Remediation
A UK offshore asset was suffering from marine fouling in the seawater system. The internal heat exchangers within the Heating Ventilation & Air-Conditioning (HVAC) units were becoming heavily restricted and blocked by marine scale. The result was a significant drop in heat transfer capabilities, causing increased zone temperatures. Whilst this can lead to general discomfort in the accommodation areas, it was having a detrimental effect on asset electrical switchgear and control systems, leading to un-planned facility shutdowns.
