Seawater is nature’s most corrosive medium, and application in cooling systems needs great care in design and choice of materials. The right choices are crucial to the costs of installation and operating as well as maintenance and service life.

Seawater is an easily accessible and very efficient cooling medium in ships, manufacturing facilities placed at the coastline or near a harbour and offshore.

Further, the capacity is almost boundless.
