Using cold battery with icy water as an alternative method of air-conditioning in a ship

G Jaw, B Dieng


The aim of this work is to reduce the energy consumption of a passenger ship by using an air
conditioning system with a solar energy source. This technique is applied on ships with a cold
room with a refrigeration unit. The work consists of using a central air conditioning system
for which a heat exchanger is placed in the cold room for the production of icy water. The icy
water is pumped in an air treatment chamber via copper wires for the cooling of the air that
is supposed to be blown in the different rooms. The circulation pump and the fan of the air
treatment chamber will be operated by a solar energy system.

Key words: Energy, Central air conditioning, heat exchanger, pump, fan, refrigeration, air
treatment chamber, copper pipe, solar energy.
