Design and supply of the complete HVAC-system on Global Mercy

We are happy and proud to have contributed with the design and supply of the complete HVAC-system including control and automation onboard the world’s largest civilian hospital ship “Global Mercy”.
Our scope of supply includes HVAC and Automation Engineering and System design, equipment delivery as well as commissioning of the systems. The equipment delivery includes 40+ Air Handling Units, 4 Chillers (2 in operation + 2 stand-by) with cooling capacity of around 2,5 MW each for the chilled water system, Provision Refrigeration Plant, 100+ fans, around 20 Fan Coil Units, around 15 Self Contained Units, Heating & Cooling coils, 500+ Air Terminal Devices, 150+ dampers, Frequency Converters, Heat exchangers, Pumps, Valves, Electrical Starters and field instrumentation.
The requirements for the HVAC-system are at highest level in general as the Global Mercy mainly will be operating in very demanding surroundings and docked in harbors for long periods. A special challenge worth to mention is the conditioning of the 6 fully equipped operation theaters. In the operation theaters the air distribution must be designed so that the fresh air, which is filtered by HEPA filters, passes the operation area without getting mixed with contaminated air. Each operating theater is furthermore served by a dedicated AHU and the temperature is controlled to be kept between +19 and +22°C.
The Global Mercy will soon join the current flagship Africa Mercy, more than doubling the impact of volunteers and services provided by the charity. For more information about Mercy Ships, updates on Global Mercy or how to volunteer or donate, please visit:

The 174-meter, 37,000-ton ship will have six operating rooms and house over 600 volunteers from around the globe representing many disciplines including surgeons, maritime crew, cooks, teachers, electricians, the host staff and more. The ship will also feature a 682-seat auditorium, student academy, gymnasium, pool, café, shop and library – all of which have been designed to accommodate up to 950 crew onboard when docked in port.
