Marine Refrigeration Solutions and Training
Trident leads the industry in the design, engineering, assembly and installation of modular refrigeration units (MRUs) — the most current, efficient and cost-effective refrigerated spaces available for ships today. Designed, engineered and built independent of the ship’s structure, our MRUs are delivered as free-standing, drop-in- place compartments or modular components for assembly. This type of construction reduces cost and weight by 15% to 20%, and reduces shipyard installation labor by 90%.
These benefits result in a highly efficient, accelerated ship schedule — reducing installation time from months to weeks — and 70% less shipyard involvement compared to traditional refrigeration unit construction.
Trident has designed, engineered, built and installed MRUs on ships of all sizes.
In addition to designing and installing refrigeration systems, Trident also provides customers with expert regulatory advice on management and maintenance of refrigeration units. Our certified engineers and technicians ensure that your assets are in compliance with global refrigerant regulations and US and EU legislation regarding ozone depleting substances (ODS), fluorinated greenhouse gases (f-gases) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
Refrigeration Service Kits
Our convenient refrigeration service kits handle refrigeration maintenance needs at sea. In the event of a leak or other repair needs, you can recover the refrigerant, vacuum the system, fix the issue and recharge at sea — all without waiting for repair assistance or parts from shore. When bigger repairs are needed, the kit provides what you need to stabilize the damaged part until fully qualified and accredited assistance arrives.
Each refrigeration kit includes:
- Refrigerant recovery unit
- Filter dryers for recovery unit
- Vacuum pump
- Electronic vacuum meter
- Refrigerant gauge set
- Adaptor for R410A refrigerant connections
- Ratchet wrench
- Service magnet for solenoid valves
- 26-liter recovery cylinder
- Cylinder adaptor
Our fully certified technicians carry out onsite leak testing and assessment of all your refrigeration plant and equipment.
We can also develop, deploy and manage a planned leak testing program to suit your operational requirements and to help you fully comply with all legislation. This enables us to be proactive and contact you in advance of any pending test requirements — and schedule these at your convenience.
Refrigeration Training Courses & Competency Assurance
Trident offers a number of refrigeration-related courses at our training facility in Rotterdam, in the Philippines, and globally, upon request. These courses include training in basic refrigeration and EPA requirements, as well as EU f-gas regulation training and certification examinations.
In addition, in Aberdeen, Scotland, Trident offers competency assurance solutions. Ship owners and operators use our certified assessors to assess the capabilities of individual refrigeration technicians, ensuring that standards of competence are met and maintained.
