reefer cargo hold ventilation

Reefer cargo hold with adjustable duct ventilation system

About ten years ago the proper ventilation of perishable goods was an issue for some ship owners and operators. Many reefer cargo hold ventilation systems were designed with a weak performance and the cooling units of containers failed during transport due to intake temperatures above the cooling units maximum design temperature. This problem has been solved for many container ships due to the design of ventilation systems according to new regulations, which take into account conservative fresh air volume rates.
