For Commercial & Industrial Hire

When Aircon Rentals was first asked to offer solutions to control temperature and humidity on board a super yacht, the team embraced the challenge and opportunity to display the specialised packaged air conditioners Aircon Rentals has available to rent.

Not without challenges, this project was incredibly rewarding and enjoyable. From conducting site visits aboard barefoot, experiencing absolute luxury that the 50m super yacht has to offer. To the commissioning of our 2 x 72kW reverse cycle packaged air conditioning units, in the dry dock down in Henderson WA.

The ship stands over 3 stories high in dry dock, which meant the cooling package had to be mounted on scaffold at a height of the top deck. The ducting needed to be fully manoeuvrable to cover all areas at different stages of the renovation.

It was most important to keep the humidity low to ensure the teak decks did not change shape during the sanding process as well provide fresh temperature controlled air to the construction crews inside. With over 140kW of cooling capacity and over 100 metres of premium canvas ducting, Aircon Rentals achieved perfect results and the client was exceptionally happy with the results of their hire.

The Super Yacht renovation was such a comprehensive task it has taken over 6 months, spanning from the end of Spring to Winter. The capabilities of the Aircon Rentals packaged air conditioners were well used. The humidity was controlled and stayed within the required parameters. By utilising a reverse cycle unit, fresh, cold air was available on those hot Summer days and warm air was provided as the project moved towards the winter months.

The job was such a success that the next year, the marine group contacted us again to help with the rebuilding of a different yacht. This time, they were looking to minimise the amount of space being taken up while the outside of the yacht was painted and lacquered as while the 72 package units were effective in their job, the location of the yacht needing work wouldn’t allow the machines to be placed close enough to the dry dock.

After consideration, our engineers were able to come up with a solution for the problem. We provided box fans which was ducted inside the yacht. These fans pressurised the boat (just like being on an airplane) and were able to keep the fumes and dust outside of the cabins while the boat was being sanded down and repainted.

Fresh air was brought from outside and passed through several filters within the three phase fans. This meant work on refurbishing the inside of the yacht was able to be undertaken while the outside was being repaired saving on time and the cost of being in dry dock. Given the costs associated with having ships in dry dock, all cost savings and time savings were very much appreciated by the client.
