RP21 HMAS CHOULES

RP21 HMAS CHOULES

In partnership with our prime contractor A&P Australia, Chillflow was instrumental to the delivery of the largest Navy HVAC upgrade in the Royal Australian Naval History.

This included the design, manufacture, supply, install and commissioning of five 1000kw chilled water plants, using J&E Hall HSM6231 single screw semi-hermetic compressor technology. The new chilled water plants are more efficient and reliable, using lower global warming potential refrigerant R513A. Our dedicated team committed all resources and worked tirelessly for several months during this project.

This resulted in successful completion of 14 day Sea Acceptance Trials in Jervis Bay, commissioning the five chilled water plants in September / October 2022. HMAS Choules has continued to operate at full HVAC and chilled water capability since completion of this upgrade.

HMAS Canberra was deployed to offer humanitarian relief after Vanuatu was devastated by tropical storms Judy and Kevin. At our clients request two of our HVAC Engineer’s deployed within 24 hours notice with HMAS Canberra to continue urgent outstanding maintenance work. During our 3 week deployment to Vanuatu our Engineers Ryan and Sean successfully completed the maintenance including additional urgent defects. HMAS Canberra’s full HVAC and chilled water capability was restored providing the Navy with confidence in the chilled water plants during their deployment. Chillflow’s Engineers were repatriated to Australia once the airport runway was successfully cleared of debris from the cyclone.

The Chillflow leadership team drives our reliable, solution focused and quality service culture and this provides a clear vision to inspire and motivate the team to work towards achieving these successes.

“We appreciate Chillflow’s flexibility, dedication and responsiveness in completing maintenance tasks to a high standard, often at late notice. Chillflow have provided their skilled staff to A&P to conduct maintenance onboard HMAS Choules whilst at sea, which is not always easy to manage and coordinate with minimum turnaround time. Chillflow’s professionalism and positive attitude make this process run smoothly, contributing to the ongoing capability of HMAS Choules”
