Big data and new partnerships drive HVAC gains

Big data, new partnerships and new technology are shaping the latest HVAC developments among the cruise ship sector. Turning big data into smart data is the interesting and innovative focus currently being explored by Callenberg Technology Group. This approach involves connecting all systems within HVAC (chillers, pumping systems, fan coils, ducts, air handlers and other critical components and sub-systems serving the machinery and accommodation systems) to ensure all are closely integrated and work in harmony. Callenberg’s energy management and HVAC marine conversion director Magnus Hansson explained: “We have worked with our own network, smart components and wireless technology to link the different areas and sub-sectors of HVAC, taking full control of, for instance, the cabin climate.” He said the next challenge involved digitalisation and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology.
